A conversation between performers, a fascinating dance duet that seeks out and fuses the common elements of Basque and flamenco culture.
Yarin is root. Yarin is found. Yarin is dialogue. We find two men who look from their root, who delve deeper into it as a way of relating to their environment. They arrive with an origin and an essence of their own, they present us with an encounter; dialogue. Dialogue is not always easy, it is built from listening, respect. Sometimes it brings us closer, sometimes it distances us, sometimes it stresses us, and it also embraces us. Yarin presents us with an intercultural meeting, where the basque dancer Jon Maya and the bailaor Andrés Marín, accompanied by the live music of Julen Achiary, meet based on an honest dialogue, which shows us the differences and the desire to share through a common path towards a tomorrow.
