¡GIRA, CORAZÓN! BAILANDO CON LORCA EN LA EDAD DE PLATA
“Spin, my heart! Dancing with Lorca in the silver ages”
There is a popular Lorca and an impossible Lorca, but they are the same. There is a Lorca with gypsy roots and a Lorca from New York, but they are the same. There is a Lorca that was the joy in any place he entered, the laughter, the music; and there was a tragic Lorca, moved by a dark melancholy of a deadly wound. But they are the same.
We have tried to approach through dance all these different men that Federico García Lorca left in his words. The poet and pioneer in drama; the singer of martinetes with a husky and dark voice; the friend of Argentinita, of Alberti, of Sánchey Mejías, of Neville, of Morla; the admirer of Manuel Torres, el Niño de Jerez; the one that maybe crossed one day the Santa Ana square to see a gypsy girl of 14 years in the Villa Rosa, by the name of Carmen Amaya; the tormented author of El público, of Poeta en Nueva York, of sonnets and gazelles.

Si alzo la voz es porque ya no puedo más. ¿De qué envidia no soy blanco?¿De qué mala intención no soy objeto? No hay don que reciba más ataques que el Entendimiento.Sor Juana Inés
Cornered by her enemies, Sor Juana rebels in this theatrical show with a flamenco soul woven from the verses and ideas of the author.
“Why should ignorance be better than science?” , she asks us as she works to tear down the walls with which they intend to silence her
Our Juana Inés is born as a tribute to the legacy of one of the greatest writers of the 17th century. And with the desire that her voice will takes us away from the society that we do not want to continue being part of and invites us to embrace the one we need to create.

Carmen Cortés has created a flamenco show with literary roots like the majority of her productions, which have been inspired by poetry and literary narrative. She strives to find that impulse that emerges from her interior to express her most profound flamenco emotion.

Flamenco contains all of the artistic keys to express a human being’s most profound emotions. In this case, these keys are used to tell the story of Yerma, interpreting the text through music, dance and theatre

MUJERES DE LORCA
Lorca’s Women is a recreation of the most important female characters from Federico García Lorca’s body of work. These characters oscillate between acceptance of their destiny and rebellion. García Lorca condenses all of the emotion of a woman’s life into her impulses, dreams and struggles. He explores themes rooted in the most intimate fibers of the female soul. And time and death are inseparable presences that also stir unrest.
