Dance Great Hall
Para cuatro jinetes
From 8 to 25 euros
From 16 years
Is it possible to speak beyond the times? Can you imagine the dance of the future? Val del Omar said that you have to enter the night to be illuminated with fire. For us, folklore is the night of this project: an enormous, mysterious, and often confusing place, expanded by legends, rites, festivals and dances that we created around it throughout history.
We will never fully know how they danced. And, perhaps, it has ceased to matter to us. Is it possible that two centuries ago, they sang to rockets that had not yet been invented? Does a tattoo last more than three thousand years on the body? Tonight at least, indeed.
Para cuatro jinetes (For Four Riders) is a work that talks about the body that is capable of containing the times... a body that is a rider and a horse at the same time, riding the fictions of our past, present and future in a humble attempt to better understand who we are and what we are doing.
