Centred all around the night spent awake at the Mount of Olives and the betrayal, Juan Carlos Lérida and flamenco expert Susanne Zellinger propose a conversation, danced as well as spoken, that arises from flamenco rhythms.
Juan Carlos Lérida is among Spain’s most innovative flamenco artists; he furthermore acts as a curator and researcher while also regularly showing his creations during the Flamenco Festival at tanzhaus nrw. He represents an adventurous and important voice within the genre. With his “Al Toque”, “Al Cante” and “Al Baile”, in which he, for instance, dismembered the flamenco triad and dedicated himself to its peculiarities, he managed to excite and challenge the global flamenco community. In this year’s festival edition, he will present three tableaux vivants – “El Monte de los Olivos” is one of them – taken from his six-part work “La Liturgia de las Horas”, that deals with the number 12 in very diverse manners.
