Spanish Federation of Dance Companies Network

The Voice Of Never is La Phármaco’s new project. The company faces a new stage proposal inspired in Samuel Beckett’s word literature classicWaiting for Godot, where dance and music coexist. The Voice Of Never faces those concepts to dance a horribly comic contemporary tragedy as the author himself would describe it. The bodies are placed in the desert where the universe of the author leads into until that desert becomes a dance. That universe is essentially verbal, or better yet, a consequence of what it is verbal. What if know, after Beckett, Waiting For Godot was only possible as a dance? That is, the dance of the absurd. The music, composed and performed live by a pianist, constitutes the sound space of this work. The score takes the second movement of Beethoven’s sonata Moonlight and the third movement of Shostakovich’s Sonata for Viola and Piano in order to compound an original sound space based on the links that exists between those two works. Luz Arcas is Best Female Dancer in Teatro Andaluz Award 2015 for her performance in this play. The project is supported by the Regional Government of Andalusia “Agencia Andaluza de Instituciones Culturales” and by “The Dance Centre” of Teatros de Canal, Madrid. Credits and datasheet
