Albert Quesada (Spain, 1982), is a Spanish dancer and choreographer. He trained at MDT (Amsterdam) and PARTS (Brussels) after he studied philosophy and multimedia engineering in Barcelona. The exploration and translation of musical structures and compositions into choreography and the invitation of an audience to perceive and to listen to the proposed works stands at the heart of Quesada’s choreographic work. Next to that, Albert is intrigued by group movement and dynamics, sparkled by his collaboration with ZOO/Thomas Hauert.
He holds many artistic projects, both educational and for the stage. Together with Katie Vickers, he co-directs two educational programs in the USA: the theatre and dance summer program at Mercersburg Academy, and the Practicing Performance / International Dance Festival.
In 2005 Albert created Solo on Bach & Glenn and later Solos Bach & Gould (2010). This was followed by Trilogy (2011), created with Vera Tussing, an evening of three short pieces exploring musical structures. Albert then expanded into larger, group choreographies with the pieces Ensemble (2012), Slow Sports (2012) and Wagner & Ligeti (2014), an examination of our understanding of orchestral music, Slow Sports Outdoors (2014), Slow Sports Kids (2015), OneTwoThreeOneTwo (2015), a duet inspired by the world of flamenco, and VIVA (2016), where the amateur group De Genoten dances to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. It's time (2017) was a collaboration with Octavi Rumbau, Federica Porello and Zoltán Vakulya. And as an associated artist in Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona), he created his big format piece Flamingos (2019).
Since 2009 Albert has been dancing with the company ZOO – Thomas Hauert (Accords, You’ve Changed, In Vivo Danse, Mono, Inaudible, How to Proceed). He has also performed for Benjamin Vandewalle.
He is now working with Katie Vickers on the project The Sun is Always the Sun and is doing his MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at Goddard College.
