Sin sudor. Sin lágrimas dance performance

Excerpt from Somos la guerra by La Pharmaco Dance Company, interpreted by Luz Arcas

Escenario Digital Arequipa
Read more
With a purely physical and intuitive discourse, Sin sudor. Sin lágrimas is inspired by anecdotes, images and concrete references to the life of Luz Arcas, the founder of La Pharmaco Dance Company: electronic music, the influence of folklore, the images of the virgin Mary venerated in Andalucía, the desire to dance more than to do choreographies, that which is called by the dancing body or the impact of the birth of her daughter on her body. The body that works, the body that desires, sweat and tears , those are some of the images that inspire this choreography, that is, ultimately, an annunciation, the hope of a miracle.
