ALBERT QUESADA CÈL·LULA #1: Flamingos (2019-20)

Buy ticket


Albert Quesada continues his personal research into the world of flamenco and its complexity with the goal of finding the origins of its movement and singing. The choreographer aims to discover the driving force behind flamenco and transfer it to other bodies and other music in order to generate new meanings. All in all, kindling the little spark that each one of us nurtures within until it finally becomes a great fire.

Flamingos is the result of placing Carmen Amaya in the middle of a scene by John Waters. The flamenco impulse to share the depths of the human soul is mixed with pop imagery, costumes and music taken to their maximum expression. Which flamenco is our own? Which music is ours and which dances does it incite us to dance? Bodies, desires, fears and references are adulterated to provoke a jam session full of magic and duende. A spree that goes on until early morning, where the eight performers strip and expose themselves with the sole intention of celebrating and celebrating themselves, with movements and singing that leave no room for doubt or uncertainty. This is how it is and it couldn’t be any other way. Ea!
