I, Carmen is not a review of the famous character, it is not a version of the so often adapted work of Merimée. No. Maria Pagés's work is a woman's voice that rises before us, clear and forceful, to express the reality that confronts, builds and develops the feminine soul. It wants to be the voice of all women, without subterfuge, without inherited folds, without fears or connotations built by the male gaze.
The voluptuous character that Bizet wrapped up with his fascinating music serves as a starting point for a show that seeks to disarm the stereotypes created, maintained and inculcated over the centuries, to silence the essence of the real woman. A woman talking about women, with the thousand and one edges that make them, that hold them.
The choreographic reflection of Pagés seeks to confront the myth and strip the public of that prefabricated image that we all have incorporated in our cultural universe, to, from there, raise on the stage a more accurate and a more truthful one. And, at the same time, it not only explores desire as an ethical responsibility, it also claims life, pleasure, autonomy, freedom and happiness as the fundamental rights of every human being.
