Sombra

Sombra is an original Flamenco piece that follows a central character through a dramatic journey of the soul. At the start of the piece, she is alone, seated in a chair, when she feels the pull of a menacing shadow of pain and fear in the form of the other lead female dancer, who is a part of her own inner self. She dances with this “shadow” dancing behind her, pushing and pulling at her emotions, as she searches for connection and comfort. Her two friends come to support her and dance with her in sisterhood and empathy, using the empowerment and force of intention in the dance to express the complex inner struggle of this character. Using Martinete, Seguiriyas and Bulerias, the pounding Flamenco rhythms, along with the plaintive laments of the vocals drive the choreography’s crescendo of longing and suffering, until finally the woman is left alone as when the piece began.

 

“We’re born alone, we live alone and we die alone. Only through love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we are not alone”
