The dance companies that give life to SEiSdeCATRO are: Solodos, Pisando Ovos, La Macana and Quique Peón Cía. These four companies, which share a residence in Galicia, are associated with the SEISdeCATRO project to create a show that breaks boundaries and thus share and exchange their creative work with each other and with the public, the show SEiSdeCATRO.

SYNOPSIS: Planes of reality and fantasy, daily moments combined with an unreal world, which leads us through unexpected paths. The facts are real but have a fantastic connotation, since some have no explanation, or are very unlikely to occur. The truth does not seem true simply because it is true, but by the way it is said. SEiSdeCATRO, different roots in one place.

MAREIA, 2004

Roads that run parallel and cross, where it stops and does not stop, where you get everything and you have nothing, where you float and sink, where some stay and others continue. Decisions that arise and choices that we make, like currents of a "something" that moves us ... We move by impulses, but ... where will that sea that hits my life like a crazy drum that gravitates drowsily between laughter and crying…
