Marble shoes is a contemporary flamenco performance that combines various theatre languages to form empty spaces for the dance of the soundscapes. To get to the dance, we fall through the cracks of our own psyche only to be captured by the water that prevails. The state of powerlessness makes communication difficult and altered movement through the liquid can be frightening.
The performance is based on flamenco dance that undergoes structural transformations throughout the performance. Flamenco rhythms merge with original electronic music, fragments of the dance communicate with spoken words, combining various forms of expression into a whole. Movement and voice, dance of the sounds that replaces words, finds a cry and anwsers it, the form that absorbs words, voice that guides the movement. Sometimes trapped, sometimes supported by the rhythm, sometimes completely free.
