Dunas: María Pagés/Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Dance in the Grec Theatre Barcelona – 15-16 July)
In the original music by Szymon Brzóska and Rubén Lebaniegos echoes a coexistence of Arabic and flamenco music, composed especially for this spectacle. Both dancers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and María Pagés extend the possibilities of the art by erasing the boundries between cultures and different sorts of artists. That´s why, in an imaginary desert full of suggestive images, the two dancers combine their techniques and traditions to encounter the resemblances between the two races.
