La Hora del Ritual (The Ritual Hour)

Juan Carlos Lérida

Share

The dance and the flamenco of Juan Carlos Lérida are fused with everyday gestures and the rituals of cooking, through the onstage encounter with Marina Monsonís, a trans-disciplinary artist specializing in the culinary arts.

The dance and the flamenco of Juan Carlos Lérida are fused in this piece with everyday gestures and the rituals of the act of cooking. In this onstage meeting point, Lérida meets Marina Monsonís, a trans-disciplinary artist specializing in the culinary arts. They will allow themselves to be traversed by the temporality, the rhythms, the smells and the physicality entailed in this shared act. An ecumenical and ephemeral moment around a stage and a table. With this work the choreographer proposes to cross flamenco with everyday life, and in this he sees his own spirituality and sacredness revealed.

“I was looking for the ordinary in the bodies of flamenco. Now I am seeking flamenco in ordinary bodies. I want to understand how one can come from the other and in their reciprocity they can become strong and affect one another intimately, personally and socially” Juan Carlos Lérida
