S·Concerto is the title of the creation that Iratxe Ansa and Igor Bacovich premiered in 2023 from the work by the Companhia Portuguesa de Bailado Contemporâneo de Portugal, founded in 1998 by Vasco Wellenkamp and Graça Barroso. With this fleeting poetic choreography, the artistic team made up by Iratxe Ansa and Igor Bacovich, internationally acclaimed for their capacity to create unique experiences, were once again given free reins for their special method of creation.

The title S·Concerto is a play on the two Italian words concerto (concert) y sconcerto (disconcerted). With a feel of awe-inspiring magic, the choreography overflows the stage.

The stage set-up intervenes in the dance as yet another choreographic element. The dancers, confronted by the sinister music, advance in crescendo until they reach a climax of great intensity.
