The dancers Lucía Lacarra and Matthew Golding are starring "Fordlandia" at Auditorio de Tenerife
The National Dance Award winner and the Canadian performer offer a show that blends cinema, performance dance and music
Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Councilt hat is managed by the councillor of Culture Enrique Arriaga. On Sunday [30th] at 7:00 pm Fordlandia, will be featured by Lucía Lacarra, National Dance Award winner and the Canadian renowned dancer, Matthew Golding. Cinema and performance dance, light and music blend with the styles of four highly talented choreographers to create a complete work of art.
This show, which fully exploits the creative and technical possibilities of theatre, is divided into scenes of the neoclassical duet with music by composers such as Frédéric Chopin, Gueorgui Sviridov, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Arvo and Pärt that were created by the choreographers Anna Hop, Yuri Possokhov, Juanjo Arqués and Christopher Wheeldon.
The starring couple walk an artistic tightrope between dance and cinematic reflection. Inspired by the experience of lockdown, a work of dance art with multiple layers emerges where, according to Lacarra, “each person has to decide for themselves if they should pay attention to reality or dreams, to disenchantment or hope”. Without a narrative, it is based on relationships and above all, the different forms of forced separation that can exist in a relationship, even with love.
