Entrar al Juego

 

Entrar al Juego   

In this show, Marco Flores manipulates space and experiments with time.  Slowing it down, changing its direction, speeding it up.  He opens up a temporary special time-line from another world to trap people and objects in an alternative dimension.  With the pretext of an appointment or an encounter, and with the obligation of entering the game he proposes, in this new work Marco Flores aims to enlarge his artistic poetry and his choreographic dynamics, expanding his artistic focus and direction.   

The female universe was his interest in “DeFlamencas,” his first large scale choreographic work.  His second creation was “Tránsito” where he took off from his interest in looking within.  After this, he became interested in the actions and relationships that come about between men in the work “Laberíntica”.  In his latest work, intergenerational concerns activate his creative impulses.  In Entrar al Juego, he begins the creative process bringing together the desire to invite artists of various ages, origins, techniques and artistic experiences.  Unlike traditional shows where the coming together of interpreters in one event come with the concerns for hierarchy and methodology to articulate compositional elements, in Entrar al Juego choreographer Marco Flores wishes to involve each of the artists in a collective composition wherein each individual is absolutely necessary for the development of the others.  We witness a new attitude and a fresh way of understanding flamenco dance.  On this occasion, age, experience and the status of those participating is not a differential value from which to support the discourse of Entrar al Juego.  Each of the artists in this work will find their own strategies to move around, to be still, to continue.  Whether as individuals or as a group.  This, in the end, is the peculiarity of Entrar al Juego. 

Dancer choreographer Marco Flores, along with Juan Carlos Lérida in stage directing and choreography, will propose to the participants in this game that they dance in a timeless place.  With Entrar al Juego we’ll be witnesses to how people transform when confronted with the need to continue.  To resolve the unknown of that place. 

A PLACE FROM WHICH YOU CANNOT – NOR DO YOU REALLY WANT – TO LEAVE 

A PLACE WHERE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHY OR FOR WHAT REASON YOU MUST BE,  

BUT YOU ARE THERE AND MUST CONTINUE.
