María Pagés is a world famous artist and dancer from Seville, known for her unique concept of flamenco aesthetics. She is considered the most important representative of the flamenco avantgarde, an art that is constantly evolving and always contemporary and alive. Critics describe her as an exceptional artist who leaves an indelible artistic impression on every viewer. In the course of her long career, Pagés has performed on all the world’s most prestigious stages and has received numerous awards for her work. She is returning to Slovenia with her latest choreography, De Scheherezade,  which is dramaturgically based on a contemporary reading of the essence of the beautiful female characters who have left a mark on the world of universal culture. In this work of maturity and organic appropriation of the art and choreography of flamenco, María Pagés and El Arbi El Harti delve into the empathy of women, placing sisterhood as the foundation of a feminine voice that expresses and defends the reality of women’s everyday lives. The story begins where One Thousand and One Nights ends. In twelve scenes, De Scheherezade  recounts the experiences of a woman who wants to establish the philosophical principles of feminine singularity in the world.
