Flamenco Fredag

Entropy is a work disregarding the overwhelming feelings accompanying the apocalypse. A floating sense of merely being a spectator of the cataclysmic events reminds us of the apocalypses we have already lived through. The flamenco dancer uses his body as a narrator, a mouth of its own, outside of traditional forms of flamenco. With the transformation of the sound of the dancer’s feet the space on stage becomes a pool of thoughts thickening in the course of the performance. Accompanied by the subtle double bass they create a subtle atmosphere where the main character is transformed from a benign one-of-the-crowd to a tyrant and constantly in the flow of an underground DJ gathering. The project explores the extension of the dancer’s movement into the ambient. Each movement becomes a manipulation of coordinates of the space. While normally dancer cannot speak now his body is a living dictaphone.

The second part of the evening is, as usual, tablao, where Mitja and Fernando will visit accompanied with the house band.
