It is the beat and the dance out of context, voice and percussion, joyful music. And on top, nourishing, floats the story, a reflection over what’s mystic, a character above reality with an essence between human and divine, living its story in mourning, in threat, in fear.
It is transit, transformation, loss, madness. It is the attempt to defeat destiny. Catedral is all about an initiation in which the devoted observer comes to a stop, silence their words, and set their hearts ready for the sacred liturgy of the dance, for the dialogue with the world of creation. It is the connection of our outer space, the profane, with the sacred inside.
It is the Dance that, as an Architect, organizes a structure that allows it, through the use of technique, to transfigure and dissolve all substance of the building elements, reaching clear sensations of elevation and ingravity.
Patricia Guerrero lashes out at the binding constraints of religion and society, in the atmospheric work that won her the Critics’ Choice Award for best performance at Seville’s Bienal de Flamenco. Joined on stage by three dancers, a guitarist, two percussionists, two opera singers and a flamenco singer, this rising star steps into a shadowy world of repression and sacrifice.
