‘Likes’ explores the phenomenon of cover dance and yoga tutorials on social networks.

How do the likes you get online affect your behaviour and body image? A fresh look at the pre-sence of the body in the digital age. Half tutorial instructor and half anthropological researcher, Núria Guiu takes you on a physical journey with a pinch of irony.

Núria Guiu is a Catalan artist based in Barcelona. She has developed her career as a dancer, performer and choreographer mostly between Scandinavian countries and her homeland. Since 2012 she has created La Muda, which premiered at the Oslo Opera as a commission work for Carte Blanche Dance Company, and PORTAL, premiered at the Oktoberdans Festival in Bergen and later at Sala Hiroshima in Barcelona. Since 2015, Núria has been studying for a De-gree in Anthropology and Human Evolution and an Iyengar Yoga TTC in Copenhagen.
