Movimiento colateral [Collateral movement]
In this show, Jose Manuel Álvarez takes an introspective look at the internalised movement and rhythms of flamenco, in both individual and shared expression. The result is a montage that shows how the genre is opening up to new languages, with an emphasis on today's flamenco, which coexists with Spanish dance and the language of improvisation.
A body's movement in space, with a specific action or its interaction with other bodies, becomes an indirect consequence for the other dancers. Collateral action and reaction.
After a decade of collaborating with various companies and performing some of his own pieces, the bailaor [dancer] Jose Manuel Álvarez decided to extensively investigate group improvisations, interested in learning from other forms of movement close to flamenco, from the perspective of the modern and contemporary scene.
