Arts Centre Melbourne and Arts Projects Australia present
María Pagés Compañía
11 & 12 March 2019 | Hamer Hall
A radical reimagining of Bizet’s heroine Carmen, through dance, music and the theatre of Flamenco.
Sevilian dancer and choreographer María Pagés creates an excitingly bold and multi-faceted blend of Carmen and the songs that inspired it. She reclaims and remakes the original story as a vibrant, contemporary ode to the essence of what it is to be a woman.
This is a visionary blending of dance, music, poetry and theatre while maintaining the primal emotion of Flamenco. An aesthetic and aural spectacle made up of an ensemble of dancers and six musicians playing live.
The music doesn’t solely rely on Bizet’s original Carmen score, incorporating the pieces that inspired Bizet as well as some adaptation of classical Flamenco music, with original compositions by Rubén Levaniegos, Sergio Menem and David Moñiz.
Described as ‘unforgettably beautiful’ at the Edinburgh International Festival 2017.
