It all began with a heartbeat, the pulse of life that turned into a rhythm. Marco Flores stretches his new piece from the precise moment in which life begins and develops it up to the heights of an experienced and inquisitive flamenco dancer. To achieve this, he utilises the symbol-laden game of “Rayuela”, “hopscotch” in English. There, the ability to assess one’s own ability meets foresight and projections into the future. Modelled after the main protagonist, Oliveira, in Julio Cortázar’s eponymous novel “Rayuela”, Marco Flores, together with singer David Lagos and guitarist Alfredo Lagos, sets off on a quest for that which he does not know. Renowned flamenco artist Olga Pericet, no less, accompanied the piece’s development which is going to celebrate its German premiere as the festival’s opening piece at tanzhaus nrw.
