Festival Flamenco Internacional: Compañía Marco Flores, Entrar al Juego
June 10, 2017
Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque presents Compañía Marco Flores in Entrar al Juego. In this contemporary and very theatrical production, Flores manipulates space and experiments with time—slowing it down, speeding it up, and changing its direction to open up a temporary timeline from another world and trap people and objects in an alternative dimension.
Flores’ first large-scale choreographic work, DeFlamencas, explored the female universe; his second creation, Tránsito, reflected his interest in looking within. Subsequently, he examined men’s actions and relationships in Laberíntica. With this new work, he expands his artistic focus and direction as well as the dynamics of his choreography. The creative process in Entrar al Juego, activated by intergenerational concerns, begins by bringing together artists of various ages and origins, with differing techniques and experiences. Breaking with traditional conceptions of hierarchy and methodology, Flores involves the artists in a collective composition, where the actions of each are essential to the development of the others, as all discover their own strategies to move, to be still, and to continue with the work, both individually and as a group. Along with stage director and choreographer Juan Carlos Lérida, he proposes to the participants in Entrar al Juego that they dance in a timeless place, and the audience witnesses how people transform when confronted with the need to continue, to resolve the unknown nature of that place.
