V O L U M E N1
It picks up on some universal dance myths for reinterpretation and exploring how they change within the story: the Haka from maori female warriors, Ravel’s Bolero group trance or the murder of a virgin during The Rite of Spring. The performance is built through the tension between two driving forces: the traditional and the contemporary one.
Volumen 1 is a contemporary dance piece, a declaration of our intentions about movement, community, femininity and rite.
