AN ODE TO TIME
María Pagés, directing and choreography
El Arbi El Harti, dramaturgy and texts
Seville-born María Pagés is internationally renowned for her personal aesthetic conception of the art of flamenco. A dancer who understands that art has no limits, she has conquered a place in her own right in the global dance panorama. Using the fundamental codes of the flamenco language, researching within and beyond this language, Pagés has proved to be a pioneer in the understanding of flamenco as an art in evolution, contemporary and alive. Over the course of her long career, she has performed in prestigious venues all over the world and has received numerous international awards for her work. She returns to Slovenia with her latest flamenco choreography An Ode to Time, a reflection on the relentless passing of time and its effects on the human body, desire, art and life. Drawing inspiration from her personal and professional life, she skilfully interweaves numerous elements into the piece, including the ideas of historical figures such as Plato, Marguerite Yourcenar, Jorge Luis Borges, John Cage, Marcel Duchamp and Octavio Paz, among others.
