Rosas Maria Pages and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, D description
Two of the world's most eminent dance makers come together to perform this stunning collaborative work which sets out to create a dialogue between flamenco and contemporary dance.
Dunas was inspired by the undulating landscape of sand dunes and is performed to live music composed by Szymon Brzoska and Ruben Lebaniegos. Powerfully hinting at the roots of both artists, the music and choreography unite the fiery passion of Pages' classically structured flamenco with Cherkaoui's modern and culturally eclectic style.
Award-winning choreographer and dancer Maria Pages (Autorretrato, La Tirana) has shaped modern flamenco in her own image, opening the art form up to new audiences worldwide with her innovative and technically astonishing style.
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Sutra, Myth) is one of the most prolific contemporary choreographers and dancers working today. Known for embracing all cultures, languages and forms of expression, he has been behind some of the most groundbreaking and critically revered works of recent years.
