The Secret Cycles
- 22.08 > 26.08.2022
The Secret Cycles is an ongoing research on non-western codes of dance, musicality, folklore and gathering as a social practice of care, joy and survival. For the first part of this intended trilogy The Secret Cycles part 1 : La fiesta de la Delfina situates its imaginary inside a birthday party somewhere in Latin America.
This duet activates the experience and memories of the two dancers who share a similar migrating journey and cultural backgrounds. Yet, both have a different experience of dance. (Désirée & Luis migrated from Latin America, however Luis has a solid academic training on folklore, hiphop, folkloric and contemporary dance, and Désirée is a self-taught dance artist who studied visual arts).
