(Des)Encaracolarse uses flamenco to explore the myriad metaphors contained in a seashell. The world-class artists and performers in Alice Blumenfeld’s company journey through the curves and spirals, echoes and reflections that make up the odysseys of shells. The title comes from a word invented by Pablo Neruda to show his obsession with shells. The performance premieres original artwork, choreography, music, and costuming, along with traditional sounds of Spain and Latin American poetry.
Blumenfeld’s dancing has been called “sharp and exhilarating” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and possessing a “fierce presence (her movements seem to arise from several feet beneath the ground)…” (Thinking Dance).
