KRISKITIN BASQUE DANCES GROUP HISTORY

The group of Basque dances and music Kriskitin born in 1985 in Durango (Biscay), with a clear intention to maintain and to recover the ample legacy of Basque traditional folklore, affecting the rich cultural expression of the zone of duranguesado and the environs specially. As it shows of this intention, we have reconstructed the "Durangoko Aratusteak" or carnivals of Durango (2000), the celebration of the Basque traditional wedding (1995 and 2000), and the recovery of a dance of 'platillus' (shields) of Durango, denominated "Platillu soņua" dance, reconstructed following the observations performed in Durango by the investigator Humboldt here long time ago.

The creation of the group happened when components from other groups of the town (Tromperri Dantza Taldea and Txoritxu Alai Dantza Taldea) , after joining itself to dance in the centenary of the Fiestas Euskaras Celebrations of Durango, decided to follow a different way from then the traditional model from seeing the folklore and the world of the Basque dances. In that new filosofia, they want to integrate the different dances in pleasant and dynamyc assemblies of dance and music, without leaving traditional roots.

In our assemblies we try to integrate dances of different points from the Basque Country, decorating them with musical adjustments in with different instruments like txistu , alboka, violins, accordions and others. Initial assembly was Berrasi (1987), that as its name indicates in euskera, supposed to reinitiate for the members of the original group. Later,we performed "Kriskitinaren Hotsa" ","Muntsaraz" and "Amillanpetik". Finally, in December of 2002 the last production was released, "AUP", that at the moment this is the one that we offer.

The Kriskitin group integrates near 100 people including among them dancers, musicians, collaborators and infrastructure.

We have danced in most of the localities of our surroundings. In basque Country we have dance in: Bilbao: (Palacio Euskalduna), Museo Guggenheim, Plaza nueva, Santutxu, Altamira). Donostia, Azpeitia, Bera, Ondarroa, Lekeitio, Getaria, Legutio, Laudio, Labastida, Etxarri, Lesaka...
