LA REINA DEL METAL (10’)

“The slowness of ritual movements in ceremonies is closely related to the rhythm of astral movements”. Cirlot
“Land of the frontier. A place of risk that demands a high degree of ritualization. I go out. I enter. I repeat. I place myself on the border. I enter. I go out. And at the end, metallic sounds that invite me to dance. I come out. I enter. Music as an accompaniment. I enter. And in the middle of it all, lines, stripes, bridges, walls, borders… The whole. Myself.”
LO QUE YO CANTO (12’)
Cádiz – Alicante, Spain
Created & Performed by: ADRIÁN MANZANO & DIANA “WONDY” GRYTSAILO
Original Music: Silvia Pérez Cruz
“Lo que yo canto” is the coexistence between two realities wrapped in their own suffering.
They try to communicate, but they are unable to empathize with each other’s perspective and the story is distorted according to the viewpoint they narrate. It happens in the time when it is neither night nor day, before sunrise and after sunset. The red cock crows by day, the black cock crows by night. In the grey hour they meet to claim their song”.
Created by: Mario Bermúdez Gil
Performed by: Mario Bermúdez, Marilisa Gallicchio & David Eusse
Original Music: Pablo Polo
With the support of Junta de Andalucía
“ADAMA is inspired by the music of the composer Jose Pablo Polo, who has created a soundscape that guides the trio of dancers on an extraordinarily rhythmic and tribal journey. The main guideline are the roots, we know them as the first embryonic organ that develops during the germination of the seed. Through this the axis of the plant is built, being the most primary, which gives life and remains trapped in the earth, this concept has been the one that has helped Mario to create Adama where the action is born from being trapped in the earth and then take it to the rest of the body. Through the roots the absorption of water is produced, the nourishment of the being, this second concept transferred to the movement of the choreographer is the relation and nourishment of the other components of the piece, all these guidelines flow in the movement, the bodies and the emotional journey letting them out of the earth to be free and to faint like this”.

“Cultural globalization is imposing everywhere the lifestyle, the language and even the customs of the dominant countries. Many local and diverse cultural forms that existed decades ago are being destroyed. Minority cultures and languages with few speakers are threatened and could disappear. This process is spreading an individualistic and mercantile logic to every corner of the planet. This unsustainable development generates a lifestyle in which you can enjoy a menu at home via Glovo, artificially boost your self-esteem by giving away personal information to private super corporations, or plant an organic vegetable garden on your balcony thanks to a kit brought by Amazon Prime from who knows where”.
“The current phenomenon of globalization, in its eagerness to unify markets, is endangering cultural varieties, their identity, as well as deteriorating their creative capacity.” Ko Un
