Festival Flamenco Alburquerque presents Compañía Olga Pericet in La Espina que Quiso Ser Flor o La Flor que Soñó la Bailaora. From award-winning dancer Olga Pericet, Espina encompasses a personal journey through dance that comes from memory, wounds, past kisses, and time, where the real and the oneiric melt in a single space-time: the interior. Espina’s language delves into the roots of the unknown; sows new things; creates a universe where feminine and masculine, humorous and dramatic fit in equal parts; and encounters human lights and shadows. A gallery of dramatic games where the woman always appears powerful, a miscellany of sculpted images, where space is traversed, between beauty and ugliness, joy and bitterness, seclusion and sensuality, youth and decrepitude, all framed in a future of rhythms that move in a palo flamenco and its opposite.

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque presents Compañía Manuel Liñán in ¡VIVA!, a song to the freedom of movement, where the feminine essence is embraced through the masculine body, where gender roles, in a codified world like that of flamenco, are broken with joy and enjoyment, creating new terrains that, although unexplored, are not distant….
!VIVA! celebrates movement through the character of the female dancer. In a celebratory key, Liñán proposes the plurality of the dance, the different forms, and the singularity of each form. And he does it with six bailaores-bailarines, who are in charge of exploring and diving into this fascinating universe of the feminine, seen from the masculine, thus exposing these two identities which are both part of our own nature.

Join us for the Albuquerque premiere of Cody Edison’s En Donde los Bailadores Se Entregan los Corazones, a music documentary celebrating the New Mexico string band Lone Piñon. Through relationships with elders, study of archival field recordings, and connections to parallel traditional music and dance revitalization movements in the U.S. and Mexico, Lone Piñon has brought the language of New Mexico traditional music and related regional traditions back onto the modern stage, back onto dance floors, and back into the ears of a young generation. The film debuted at the Cinema on the Bayou festival in Lafayette, LA, where it won the Director’s Choice award.
Lone Piñon will play a short acoustic set before the film, and will join director Cody Edison, visiting from Los Angeles, for a Q&A afterwards.
2019; Cody Edison; English; 41 minutes; not rated.
