Event: Dancing show “Frágil” (Fragile) with Leonor Leal (dancer) and Michio (live music). “Frágil” is a play dedicated to the experimentation and the dialogue between electronic music and dance. It presents an insight about the usage of common language such as flamenco, and the illusion of living in a process of investigation that results in this show-performance where they try to approach the fragility of the artist as a human being (and in this case as a “bailaora”), from an expressive and conceptual level. A reflection about observing and being observed, about the free and naked exposition to the audience of what one believes to be. It is about the fears involved and the strength it takes to show them. The challenges, the limitations, the insecurities, the obsessions or the sensibility closer to the skin. Advanced tickets: 12€, gate: 15€.

The event will take place at K de Kose Kose’s workshop. The entrance is free, however the spaces are limited. In case you want to make a reservation send an e-mail to email@example.com.

The versatile Argentinian actress Victoria Siedlecki is capable of making us laugh and think to a fast pace, based on magnificent texts and a contemporary mix of humor and all kinds of passions. Sex among angels may be too clear for some, such as a seemingly innocent love song or the best kept secrets of Arabian Nights… The price is not set yet.
