For years, relationships between people of the same sex have been challenging, even sanctioned. Those in same-sex relationships often could not show their love publicly, but instead found other ways to express themselves.

This new creation by Manuel Liñan explores our need for loving relationships. The contact between dancers and importantly the absence of it is essential in this work. Liñán sheds light on our desire for touch and intimacy, the feelings that hold us back, and what drives us.

Liñán is known for exploring sexuality and gender expression through his work having previously presented the acclaimed ¡VIVA! At the Flamenco Festival 2022. Muerta de Amor was produced as part of programme of artistic residencies curated by the Flamenco Festival.
