I have no idea what it’s about, other than it’s a dance performance which “delves into the wounds of darkness and light in search of its answer” and asks whether one can exist without the look of a lover, an enemy …
It’s about how the primeval clay from which this history is formed encompasses dark melancholy and overwhelming life, and how from this paradox comes a shocking truth: that love cannot exist without cruelty, or pain without happiness, nor light without darkness, and all this by the work and grace of a minor god, a literal Lucifer or light-bringer, whose look testifies to the beauty of that difference of potential which we humans are if reduced to energy.
Whatever it’s about, it sounds emotive and profound, and the Look, whether of Lucifer or lovers, underpins the whole dance spectacular called La Mirada, which promises to reveal through dance how we perceive reality through our five senses.
La Mirada is being performed in the Teatro Guimerá in Santa Cruz this coming Saturday, 20 November at 8.30pm. Tickets cost €9, €13 or €16, and are available by telephone 902 364 603, online from General Tickets, or at the theatre’s box office from tomorrow to Friday between 11am and 1pm, and again between 6-8pm.
