Entre viatges i flors

Entre viatges i flors (Amongst journeys and flowers) is a performance in which dance is used to stage the absurdistic short stories by Mercè Rodoreda gathered in her book “Viatges i Flors”.

The images the texts evoke read like a stream of water, now calm – carefully constructing a landscape – now fast and direct – establishing an image as strong as it is fleeting.

This work looks for connections between these images and the inherent ambiguity of dance. The intent was to create a particularly poetic frame, between literality and abstraction, allowing for the texts to appear in all their beauty and musicality, while respecting their melancholic tone, stained with sadness by the absurdity of war.
