Faces

This new creation of María Pagés Company, whose title is Rostros (Faces), invoking the singularity of the plural, is part of a syncretic and open dialogue that establishes tradition and modernity. As in all the works of the Spanish director María Pagés, her creative sensibility fuses, through choreography, flamenco music and dramaturgy, the enormous diversity and richness of Spanish culture. It is, of course, a wisdom and cultural knowledge that come out from her particular patrimonial essence, as paradigms that catalyse freedom and the universal.

From the dramaturgical point of view, this dialectic between the past and the present is narrated by seven poetic voices, Machado, Benedetti, Hernandez, Whitman, Cervantes, Neruda and Lorca ... That is why in Faces, literature, music and dance intertwine organically in every movement, every word, every song.

 

Rostros is, therefore, the result of a research and recovery of Spanish cultural heritage, which allows the choreographer to participate in her unique way of understanding flamenco as a living art in constant evolution, an art that as the Andalusian philosopher Ibn Arabi says, can adapt to all forms without losing his soul. In this occasion, the artist rescues some classic songs of enormous value, that the musicians of the company and dancers regenerate and interpret in a master way.
