The title Óyeme con los ojos (Let your eyes listen to me) arises from the poem Sentimientos de ausente (Feelings of absent) by mexican-poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.
In this beautiful solo, María Pagés accompanied by six musicians, narrates the life and concerns of a woman, whose existence is marked by dance and choreography, as a vocation and as a profession. Maturity provides her the distance and bravery to reveal herself as she is: a woman, human, who is neither surprised nor scared of her humanity.
From the poems of the sufís and mystics Ibn Arabi, Jalal Eddine Rumi, San Juan de la Cruz, Fray Luis de León, Tagore and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz herself, Óyeme con los ojos is a composition built around eight scenes, very patent dramaturgically at choreography and music, the latter being a dramatic charcacter itself. Its uniqueness resides in the fluid interaction between : story and words, rhythm, singing and melody, flamenco tapping and percussion, strong voices and delicate ones, humor and irony.
The show’s duration is 75 minutes with no pauses.
