(Research and Creation Laboratory )L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà) From 13/02/2014 to 18/02/2014 Pastora Galván
( Pastora Galván, Pedro G. Romero, Niño de Elche ) Pastora Galván, in her research into the experience and feelings of flamenco, seeks to pay homage to the previous generation of dancers, who played a key role in its history: Eugenia de los Reyes, Carmen Ledesma, Rocío de Loreto, Manuela Carrasco, Ana Mari Bueno and Loli Sevilla, among others. This was not a tragic generation. The period after the Second World War was a time of modernisation. They worked in Flamenco venues, tourist spots and ballets, at parties and US bases, on international tours. Myths abound: the Sevillian School, the differences between Seville and Triana, the gypsy style. The interest of this research lies not just in biographies, but in understanding a way of dancing that has names yet belongs to no one.
During this laboratory, the first of three that will take place at L'animal a l'esquena over the year, the band of musicians, el Niño de Elche, Mal Pelo and Pedro G. Romero will meet to define the tools to enable them to work together and establish the conversation from which joint creation can flow.
La diferencia/The Difference will be premiered on the 3rd October at the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville, as part of the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla.
