At the Vancouver Playhouse
Vancouver International Flamenco Festival presents: Manuel Liñán Company - Baile De Autor
BAILE DE AUTOR unites Manuel Liñán as choreographer and performer. After choreographing for other companies such as the Ballet Nacional de España, Nuevo Ballet Español, Rafaela Carrasco, Belen Maya; and having made his mark as a solo dancer, Manuel Liñan sets forth these two facets, which have defined his career, in a unified manner and performed by himself. Manuel presents a space in which the director, the author, creates different scenes during the work, breathing life to each element: light, sound, song, guitar, music, dance; a fantasy which creates connecting ties for the artist as choreographer and dancer. A director that dreams of a dancer dancing. One same person, resulting in a dancing fantasy divided into different choreographies, having nothing to do with one another, a show that lives in the mind of the artist and his creativity, A dream which he alone imagines and which we can all witness, an awakening and the VOID. “Baile de Autor” allows the audience to have a glimpse into the creative construction of an artistic work, exposing all the elements which support dance in theatre.
