BAILABAN LAS PEROLAS

Bailaban las perolas

Synopsis

¿Qué queda tras derruir una casa?

¿Quién tiene las llaves de esta puerta?

¿Puedo bailar contigo si no estás?

Ojalá esas piedras volviesen a escuchar la fiesta…

Quita las sillas.

No me llores.

Sácame a bailar.

Project description:

Bailaban las perolas [pots in Aragonese] is a short-duration piece created by Laura López Muñoz and Pablo Pérez Alonso intended for unconventional spaces where contemporary dance converges with tradition and folklore, investigating the loss of heritage throughout the stories left by our ancestors.   

This is a project that emerges out of love and admiration towards our homeland, its people and their way of living, often forgotten over time. We are who we are because of our roots.
