Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

Material inhabits the dancer’s body and passes through the moment in which signifiers, forms and contents stop being of vital importance.
A strong feeling in which art is presented to us as a living thing, expandinglike water vapour, involving. Material in its pure state. Physical, corporal, tangible.
In Material, flamenco is the generator and point of union and departure towards other states. There is something in it which is both tasty and painful at the same time, a catastrophe that throws us into chaos and calmness and gives us back waste of animal happiness.

“Material is the body and what it can do. Material is the body and what can be done with it… sometimes, it’s even close to what we’ve imagined.”

Synopsis

1)Define what MATERIAL is and what it is made of.

2)The art material is there, quite tangible, looking at you, proudly waiting to be mastered. The art material that is physical does not always show itself in the same form; this inconstancy, sometimes, regarded as perverse, is what we stroke.

III) and IV). The M-A-T-E-R-I-A-L that composes the content of the message is, by its very nature, emotional. Perfection is still and the unpredictable is in motion.

5)Material is sometimes a PDF, a word document, the capture of a precious and painful memory that struggles to convey to you the illusion of being there.

6)Material is breathing, placement, muscle, sweat, heart rate… and inhabiting that immense palace that is your functioning body.

7)MateriaL – sensitive and human – the beauty of catastrophe and the communion of fire.
