Artistic statement

United by perfectionist tendencies and a dark side they harbor in themselves like a ruffle, they together strive for the invisible quality of dance and its accompanying spirits. This ghost – a kind of archaic definition of Duende – is the implicit territory of their art “where poetics interacts with the tension and elasticity of the void that ties bodies together”, says Christian Rizzo. “They both relate to a very strong animality but the shadow of that animality must be more unsettling.”

Marie-Agnès Gillot and Andrés Marín have already explored their connecting points in the studio. “I like flamenco’s relationship with rhythm, she explains, which we didn’t know in classical dance. It’s a kind of “personal” drum base“. She would like to dance pointes to it. This could only appeal to Andrés, an exceptional dancer full of surprising ideas, a rejuvenator of a multifaceted flamenco that ranges from the sharpest heel thump to the zaniest rock opera. The three artists engage in a dazzling dance.

Whether they wear studs, sneakers, pointes or genuine flamenco shoes, they are ready to present a ferocious and sophisticated flamenco, accompanied by Didier Ambact’s drums and Bruno Chevillon’s double bass, as well as the always fitting contributions of lighting designer Caty Olive.
