THREE dynamic contemporary flamenco dance pieces will light up Bracknell next month.

Dotdotdot will be rewriting the rules of traditional dance styles, creating thoughtful, multidisciplinary flamenco dance at the Wilde Theatre, South Hill Park, on Tuesday, March 17.

In Body will explore traditional flamenco dance style through three choreographers’ vibrant and contrasting styles.

Separated into three stunning dance performances, In Body is part of South Hill Park’s Lift Off Dance Festival – which celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The first piece, When Viola Met Vargas, is an exploration of shared pulse and emotional dynamics, inspired by movement qualities found in Bill Viola’s video art and Manuela Vargas’ iconic solo Petenaras.

Constructed as a slow-moving image that the audience is invited into, it questions the immediacy in the way in which flamenco is usually performed – creating a striking visual image that evokes a dreamlike.

Into Being investigates the Tarantos style. Choreographer Noemi Luz was struck by the electric power of this flamenco song and its ritualistic nature.

The movement grows out of the song as a seed from the earth – both delicate and energetic. Into Being draws from Tarantos’ varied and nuanced rhythms to create a new aesthetic.

Meanwhile the final piece, I Come to my Body as a Question, is a direct reaction, deconstruction and retelling of the sentiments expressed in Guajira.

The traditional Guajira provoked a sense of alienation in choreographer Yinka and she was inspired by the use of the fan, its lyrics and the over-sensualised perception of feminine gestures.

Dotdotdot is currently directed by Noemi Luz and Magdalena Mannion.

In 2016 they were invited to curate a wild card evening at the Lilian Baylis Studio – which led to the creation of In Body.

The pieces have been performed at Sampled 2017 and The Sadler’s Wells takeover of the National Theatre river stage 2018.

In Body comes to South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell on March 17 at 7.45pm. Tickets are £17.50 or £5 for under 18s.
