Brújula, Flamenco Dinámico
“Flamenco is part of our cells, however, we love research in movement, space and information. Our work starts from a concept and travels through it, receiving particular colors, shapes and sensations. At Brújula we are two hostesses and many guests; depending on the project, we work with artists from different trends. We do not have a definite place, but several routes traveled. The trip started in Madrid, is stopping in Mexico and will follow the direction of the inside magnetic needle.”Flamenco Show Fri, Mar 21, 6 and 8:30pm El Sindicato Recreo 4 Duration: 1:15 hrs.

“Mexican Dream” is a complete choreography play of flamenco theatre, which analyzes from different perspectives the situation in our country, the big government problem, the mass media power, the complaints of the people achieving nothing, or the people not complaining who have given up.
Each and every one of the performers has a defined posture in this play; consequently, via text, music and movement these characters communicate their opinion, creating a dialogue between themselves and with the spectator; this dialogue transitions through polemical issues and therefore becomes controversial.
“Mexican Dream” was created in order to raise awareness and inject concerns that result in a small number of diverse actions, which then will be transformed into a mighty big chain of brave solutions and pro-active attitudes capable of confronting our national blindness.
“People are the best and the worst of this country: we continue with the mentality of the indigenous — being conquered and passive — we believe that the government is in charge; either infused or innate, we are afraid. And only these same people are capable of confronting this madness.”
