Mercedes máis eu
The power of Galician dancer and creator Janet Novás, and the vitality of Mercedes Peón's music come together to depict the intense sounds of Galician lands. Together, they explore the relationship between sound and movement, immersing the spectator in a ritual full of beauty and creativity. Instruments, memories, songs and dance evoke socio-political and biographical concepts, and even quantum experiences, which make Mercedes máis eu an exciting journey that will continually surprise you.
Mercedes máis eu takes a look at collectivity, and it does so using perspectives and feelings that are far from archetypal. The work is a hybrid of dance and music that is full of evocative images, making it possible to experience different architectures, from performing-arts contexts to others that are more often found in museums or installations.
Janet Novás is a Galician dancer, performer and contemporary dance choreographer who uses her experience and a dialogue with her own body to create her work. Her creations have been presented at prestigious national and international festivals.
Mercedes Peón is considered to be one of the most charismatic women on today's world-music circuit. Her extensive repertoire, along with the charm and energy that characterise all of her performances, make Peón a safe bet for the continuing success of the ethno-contemporary scene in Europe.
