Israel Galván, the radical and incandescent incarnation of flamenco today, needs no introduction. He is back with his version of El Amor Brujo (Sorcerer’s Love) by Manuel de Falla. What can be done with this prolifically performed monument, widely treated as folklore to the point of forgetting that it is a central point in the connections, comings and goings, between Spanish tradition and gypsy culture? “I want to bring out the magnetism in this work”, announces the dancer-choreographer who takes a brilliant new look at the tradition, giving it back its body and soul.
Less artifice, more body and music “stripped to the bone” promising a more violent, rawer version of this classic. Its softness has been stripped back to return it to its sensational beauty and invite us on a journey to the unknown of magic and superstitions still very much alive today. The sorcery that Galván is preparing to visit has to do with a celebration of the feminine, kept intact in this piece and tamed by the dancer through his graceful moves.
