Mal Pelo

María Muñoz grew up in Valencia, where she studied music and took part in athletics competitions. She also began to dance, and extended her training in Amsterdam and Barcelona. Her first professional experience was gained with the Japanese company Shusaku & Dormu Dance Theater. In 1985 she founded the group La Dux with Maria Antònia Oliver. In 1988 she developed the solo “Cuarto trastero” with Pep Ramis, and established the company Mal Pelo with him in the following year. Muñoz recently became choreographer, dancer and artistic co-director of the centre L’animal a l’esquena in Celrà, Girona

Pep Ramis was born in Mallorca into a family of art- and music-lovers. He studied cello, puppetry and singing. Drawing has been a part of his everyday imaginative life since his childhood. His interest in performance began in 1985, when he discovered that it united his previous experiences, with the body at its centre. In 1986 he worked with La Dux; in 1987 he took part in Adriana Borriello’s “Scirocco”; in 1989 he founded the company Mal Pelo with María Muñoz. Today he works as a director, performer and artistic co-director of the centre L’animal a l’esquena in Celrà, Girona.
