IN RESIDENCY: CISCO AZNAR
Flux Laboratory will welcome choreographer Cisco Aznar who will work on his new creation "Dolores Circus".
After an extensive period of time spent working on mandated projects as well as doing humanitarian work in Africa and Brazil, Cisco Aznar now feels the need to realise a very personal creation, with the aim of sharing parts of his recent experiences.
Could we say that there is a cosmological concept of pain? A pain shared between all the living beings inhabiting our planet? Is there a dance of pain? A dance against pain?
This "Dolores Circus" (Circus of Pains) grew in him following experiences lived in antagonistic worlds, where he was able to observe and experience pain meticulously, both in its individual and collective manifestations.
"Dolores Circus" is an antidote to pain, a drug to calm the suffering, but also a ruthless finger in open wounds, making us scream and groan before regaining consciousness.
