MORE THAN 30 YEARS
The 10 & 10 dance company was founded in October 1989 in Madrid, Spain. The founding group of the company was made up of Nati Aguilar, Pedro Berdäyes, María Fernández del Castillo, Eduardo Ruiz, Mónica Runde and Fernando Vera. The trigger to create the formation was to win the first prize of the III Madrid Choreographic Competition awarded by Pedro Berdäyes for his choreography "Kitatióh" performed by the whole group, including himself.
With the first program, HORA PUNTA, what would be the foundations of the company until 2004 were established. Company with double artistic direction and those responsible for the creation, Pedro Berdäyes and Mónica Runde, and the rest of the members and themselves as performers. At the beginning, the production was carried out as a team, the work being distributed among all of them and later the production of the company would be carried out by Mónica Runde.
10 & 10 dance was then renamed 10 & 10 dance - Berdäyes & Runde .
One of the characteristics of the company from 1989 to 2001 was the presentation of two independent choreographic works, one by Berdäyes and the other by Runde, always both choreographies under a generic title. From 2001 to 2004 the choreographies are shared between both creators. From 2005 onwards, when Berdäyes left the company to dedicate himself to pedagogical work at the Real Conservatorio Profesional de Danza de Madrid, the works are one-person jobs by Mónica Runde, as well as the artistic direction of the company.
The nomenclature changes again to 10 & 10 dance - Monica Runde.
Inés Narváez, Mónica Runde and Elisa Sanz after several creations together decide to assume the
co-direction in 2020, changing the methodologies, aesthetics and even the creative fields and their exhibition. They abandon the last name "dance" which becomes part of many others ... action, performance, stage act, installation ... among others...
10 & 10 - Narváez, Runde, Sanz.
