Bailar no es Solo Bailar

Synopsis

Three vertices with enough distance between them to create a clear center, an internal space, that like a matrix houses the answers; this project intends to find its center through an exercise in triads. To answer our questions by creating a scenic triangulation, the first geometric triangulation of Flamenco on boards and therefore the perfect vehicle to retrace this path, to undertake a return to the origin, to Flamenco as a pure, territorial, and maternal heartbeat. To the scene without deception. To the dance without evasion.

Three universes to generate fertile space to deepen, undo, merge, and be reborn. Away from the usual accompaniment to immerse ourselves in a real, inescapable encounter, with the intention of creating a living game. In this game, bodies interact and coexist to connect, enhance, and destroy each other; truth, honest drive, and the search for certainty is the only assertion. Our triangle will be a battlefield for Eduardo Guerrero to stalk his genesis, his first dance, his ten-year career, his relationship with Flamenco, his body and its plasticity. To carry out this approach other vertices are needed, axes destined to empower and provoke the dancer to find his instinctive and unpretentious dance, practically unstoppable, that emerges from the need to move the emotion to understand it, to root it, or to devour it.

This project aims to dive into the basics in a humble, simple way, without distracting artifacts and observe what happens when we let the minimal invade us, that innocent dance of the beginning returns to our body.

What happens when we eliminate all the subterfuge to see how the body beats and honestly gives into itself to blur and melt.

A triad to return to Flamenco as catharsis, as a language to unburden the heart and let the soul free. To return to Flamenco as a collective communion and sacred meeting, as a vehicle that brought us to the here and now and from which we will return to the before.

His movements draw both geometric and asymmetric figures, his arms seem to have no end… Eduardo is one of those who, over time, has reached the highest echelon. – Juan Garrido, Expo Flamenco

Eduardo Guerrero

Eduardo Guerrero (Cádiz 1983) began dancing at the age of 6. At 16, he was part of the company of Aida Gómez, Javier Latorre, Eva Yerbabuena, Antonio Canales, and Rocío Molina, among others, touring all over the world and beginning his professional career. From 2011 he started touring with his own shows, among which Desplante (2015), Guerrero (2016), Faro (2017), Sombra Efímera II (2019) and Debajo de los Pies (2021) with which he obtains the Lorca Award for best male performer of Flamenco Dance (2022); it is with these last creations together with the artistic director Mateo Feijoo when he begins an arduous work of research and change in its forms, evolving to the contemporaneity of the lines. Eduardo participates in the most important events, surprising and exciting critics and audiences. After his success in the Lorca and Granada Cycle, it is time for this great dancer who with a modern aesthetic, a refined technique, a deep knowledge of the essence of flamenco, his talent and his enormous vital force, thrills and has positioned himself among the great names of International Dance.
