Flamenco dancer Rosario Toledo comes back one again for the Bienal de Sevilla. Her latest production, ‘Pintoresca’, will be performed on September 26, at 9pm and free of charge, at the Cultural Initiatives Centre of the University of Seville (CICUS), under the frame of the I Ciclo Bienal Documental Mujeres en Proyección.
In this piece, the artist uses cubism as an aesthetic key by means of which distorting figurative flamenco and grasping its very essence. In order to achieve this and always keeping in mind Picasso’s paintings, Rosario appeals to the symbols of the naked woman and the shape of the guitar, exploring spatial possibilities in a play in which the bailaora herself draws the staging with her moves and turns into a sketch-woman.
This time, Rosario is again accompanied by Dani de Morón, pillar of the project, and his guitar. They both pay homage to Ramón Montoya’s rondeña, a perfect metaphor of what it means to bank on individuality.
This is without the slightest doubt a unique opportunity to enjoy Rosario Toledo’s creativity and expressive ability, after her triumph on the latest edition of the Bienal de Sevilla, in 2012, when her performance ‘Aleluya Erótica’ (or ‘Erotic Hallelujah’) was awarded the Giraldillo al Mejor Espectáculo (Giraldillo prize to best show).
The admission to the Cultural Initiatives Centre of the University of Seville (C/ Madre de Dios, 2) is free of charge, on a first come, first served basis. The show was already performed within the I Encuentro de Coreografía y Danza de Jerez (I Encounter for Choreography and Dance in Xerez), on July 2013, and was seen as a great success in terms of audience.
