As a travel in time, In Paradisum proposes a dialogue between religious & folklore music, the sacred and the mundane, the colectivity and the individual. A humanistic consideration about the concept and the search of spirituality in our time. A scenic ritual full of movement, rhythm, subtleness, pulse, emotion and energy. This piece pays tribute to the Renaissance composer Tomás Luis de Victoria, with original score from Pablo Martín Caminero, and scenography based in El Greco paintings, with set design by Paco Azorín, costume design by Rosa García Andújar, and lighting design by Olga García. In Ruz own words, this work is a “homage to dance, a colective ritual that serves as an instrument to connect not only with yourself, but with the others. The concept of trascending and feeling as part of a whole. We propose a humanistic reflection about spirituality in our time. Along with playwright Rosabel Huguet and the whole creative team, we’ve worked on making the audience feel entitled to make their own interpretation through imagery, music, the mise en scène, and of course, the choreography”.
In Paradisum will provide a boost of energy, freedom, emotion and movement that will leave nobody indifferent. A human travel in time that will connect the expert audience with those less accustomed to contemporary dance. The opportunity to see the CDN cast working on this new challenge should not be missed.
