An investigation that searches for the defining or essential element that all Latin-American dances share between them from a contemporary point of view. Among the hundreds of styles and rhythms found in the continent, there is a constant spirit of celebration, pleasure, community, sensuality and ceremony.
A dance and music hybrid performance by Paco Ziel and Bernardo Alvarado Rojas. The artists aim to bring echoes of prehispanic instruments into the present and breathe new life and movement into them.
This multidisciplinary solo, somewhere between dance, theatre and music, is the fruit of three collaborations between Diana León and emerging creators Paco Ziel, Jérémy Galdeano and Vera Kvarcakova, assembled by theater director Nicolás Núñez. Their guiding theme is knowledge of the self and the work necessary – amidst social pressures and inner demons – to find one’s own voice.
Inspired by the life and work of singer Lhasa de Sela, a selection of nine songs is performed in a dreamlike atmosphere, evoking the passion and vitality she possessed, and the magical realism characteristic of her story, which was the result of the mixture of cultures and extraordinary experiences that marked her life.
