Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

Along the history of human evolution (or rather an involution), humans have realized that they have been self-tamed. People developed enough awareness to feel as if their instincts had been oppressed; they craved the freedom that allowed them to express their human essence without barriers or oppressions. This process led the individual to a fight against himself and against society and its norms. The wild and animal instincts are freed, establishing power struggles and hierarchies. However, over time, individuals learn to cooperate and establish communication bridges to promote the understanding between group members. Within this coexistence, the expression of one's creativity is negotiated and different ways to contribute to the proper functioning of the group are found. Azul Petróleo is an instictual search where we will witness a reflection on how group membership affects the expression of our individual human nature. Using a movement language that revolve around urban dances and contemporary, fundamental questions about human existence are presented: How much of our individuality are we willing to sacrifice to maintain our membership to a group?   Credits and datasheet
