Conceived & Choreographed by
Al Margen Flamenco
A Flamenco dance program that delves into notions of loss and transformation in the throes of grief.
From March 4 to March 13, 2022
A powerful Flamenco dance program that explores the notion of loss and transformation in the throes of grief, including its various literal translations– “pena, grief”, “dolor, pain”, “aflicción, affliction” – as well as its looser associations–”añoranza, longing”, “soledad, loneliness”, “pérdida, loss”.
This production will also serve as a turning point, or punto de inflexión, for Al Margen Flamenco with changes to our geographic locations and collaboration methods due to Covid-19.
How, what, and when do we grieve? What causes us to grieve? Are there possible benefits to grieving? Through a series of interconnected vignettes, this series of expressive dance pieces in the Flamenco style explores what grief means on a variety of topics.
The arc of the show will also be foregrounded in various models of the stages of grief (both the five- and seven-stage models), highlighting shock/denial, pain and gilt, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, reflecting on the last two years, along with other moments in our life, and attempting to process what this pandemic has meant for us as artists. We will take this as an opportunity to observe where we find ourselves now and muse on what possibilities lie in the future after this grief has changed us and made us new.
