The Flamenco Biennial brought together dancer Ana Morales and sound artist Enrique Tomás from Madrid for an exiting flamenco experiment in which dance, rhythm and electronics interact. On Sunday November 13th 2016 they will perform one more time at November Music Festival.
Bagatelles is a series of flamenco impromptus combined with live electronics. A stage full of interactive objects is waiting for Ana Morales to bring them to life: through her movements, robots, a floor and digital instruments an astonishing soundscape is created. In an free choreography she takes her lead from the live electronic music generated by Enrique Tomás. Together they create new spaces for flamenco in which the old art communicates with the latest technology.
Her subtle mediation of the fierce expression so common for flamenco to a more vulnerable and internalized form is extraordinary.
