Oscar Niemeyer reminded me that in humanity there are no hierarchies, that we are all in the same dimension of having hope and desire to change the world for the benefit of humanity.
Life is a breath. Everything ends. They tell me that after I pass away, other people will see my work. But those people will die too. And others will come but they will also leave. Immortality is a fantasy, a way of forgetting reality. What matters, while we are here, is life, people. Hugging friends, living happily. Changing the world. And nothing more.
Utopia was born from the encounter of María Pagés and the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer that led to the beginning of a collaboration between architecture and its universe and flamenco dance and choreography.
It definitely comes from, an artistic and ethical investigation on the concomitances between the original traces of the architectural conception and dance. But it also ends up being the aesthetic exploration of nonconformity and desire.
From a powerful flamenco choreography, a choreographic conception inspired by the curvilinear traces of Oscar Niemeyer sketches and an original and live music, this piece speaks of solidarity, commitment, exile, transience and the smallness of human beings in a cosmos Indifferent to their miseries and greatness.
It is also a work that claims imagination and idealism as necessary engines for the growth of humanity.
