Nuria - Paso de cebra

INDIVIduo
Nuria - Paso de cebra
Una tragedia

how dealing with loss
how dealing with tragedy

how do you grieve, what are the rules
how do you go on, what are the procedures

alone, talking
on your own, listening seeing answering
and off course touching

time as a trapezoid graph
remarking between two lines
good memories and goods of this day
thoroughly eupeptic

allowing to go on, guapa, luminous
looking for skylines, other, mountains

allowing to live
even when you know
everything ends.

In "Nuria - El paso de cebra", we use the 'crossroad' as stage for a contemporay dance performance in combinatiob with Fado music, sung live.

A crossroad is a universal environment with his own habitudes and rules. The changing of the lights, the passing cars and the crossing pedestrians become part of the performance.

The contemporary dancers Luis Marrafa & Petra Van Gompel and Fado singer Maria Odilia Henriques make use of the changing of the green and red lights, the safe crossing as a connections between two street sides, the waiting, the going, the running. They are confronted with the distances between two parrallel crosswalks.

In short: the crossroad as a metaphor. The path that people have to travel, the decisions they have to make, the obstacles they have encounter.

The traffic flow determines on wich crosswalks action will take place

SAUDADE

Saudade is the Portuguese word that indicates the melancholy caused by the memory: the pain that one feels due to the absence or disappearance of persons, things, situations or actions. It inextricably linked to the Fado.

The Portuguese Fado has a special place in the lives of the Portuguese. She gives voice to the emotions of life, sadness, melancholy, happiness, sadness, saudade.

Therefore Fado is the perfect soundtrack for "Nuria - Paso de cebra"
