Before I fall asleep I close my eyes to see myself dance.
I imagine my movements singing the space I occupy.
I memorise the sound and refer back to that score to tattoo it in the air with my body.
The rhythm guides me into sleep, into a night full of life, ritual, hope and liberating transformation.

This proposal, with the aim of expanding my choreographic language, exploring another musical format and developing sound and space, is centred around the body; around bodies, rhythm and the essence of the guitar. It focuses on everything near to us that brings us closer to our own heart-beat. Natural materials and their textures, pots and pans, the table, cooking utensils as tools for “battle”. The guitar stripped bare, percussion, rudimentary singing, feet dragging across the floor, shoes or voices that make us call on other bodies, all these come to life on stage to create, through a shared folklore that has been re-written, re-travelled and revisited, a multifaceted flamenco performance.

Made to be played and danced at night and full of references to other music and other places, Nocturne Number 3 is an investigation by two musicians and a dancer on stage, who together weave a path through insomnia. The journey is sometimes lucid, sometimes ecstatic or solemn, sometimes painful and lonely…

A dancing blow, a striking dance and a singing guitar.
