Sònia Sánchez lets desires, instincts and memories flow in her new production Le Ça. El Ello, a piece without scenography or dramaturgy that opts instead for austerity and simplicity. The artist’s intention is to recover the essence of the past, when technically perfect choreographies were not necessary.

Onstage, a flamenco dancer and three musicians perform pre-agreed improvisations where they dispense with technique to let the unconscious flow, exploring new rhythms, different textures and distinct ways of composing.

Following academic training in the art of flamenco, in 2000 Sònia Sánchez discovered the world of butoh dance and body weather and she continues to pursue her research on flamenco as a body language in all its essence. Flamenco dance and butoh are fundamental techniques for the exploration of improvisation, rhythms, qualities, the tones of the muscles and movement, in the quest for a free spontaneous body, without aesthetic ties or mental structures. During the last few years she has staged pieces such as Retales (2007), Rincones y claros de bosques (2008), 23 de mayo (2009), El Pliegue (2012) and Temple (2013).
