Life, Melvin, is a fish at Teatro Maestranza de Sevilla
Life, Melvin, is a fish will premiere on the 9th June 2021 as part of Vertebración XI, a festival curated by Asociación PAD for the Maestranza Theatre in Seville, Spain:
Choreographer Noemí Luz collaborates with sound designer and composer José Tomé, dramaturg Iris Dekker and lighting designer Manuel Lostes to create a quirky dance theatre production that asks whether it's our memories in themselves that define us or if it's the way we go about preserving them shows us who we really are. Life, Melvin, is a fish is a homage to those we have loved and lost, to eccentric grandparents, and an attempt at preserving our most significant childhood memories.

"They scrutinise flamenco by posing three questions. To expand the flamenco language – in the artistic, scenic, and pedagogical realms –, the talks center around the transfer of ideas and experiences. The look on flamenco is one through an interdisciplinary kaleidoscope, in conjunction with our environment, in order to enable an imagining of future forms of practice."
Noemí Luz contributes dance "capsule" to the online gestural dictionary Buzón de Baile curated by Spanish National TV RTVE & Radio 3 Extra. This digital dance project is produced by Mosquera de la Vega & Rigo Pex and invites choreographers of different dance styles from all over Spain to create dance "capsules" inspired by different words.
La Tercera Mirada - Premiere in Roses, Girona
La Tercera Mirada (The Onlooker’s View) is an installation created by Cordobés photographer Emma Alcalá that aims to help society become aware of and sensitive to domestic violence by looking at it through the eyes of a child; in this case, the child of a married couple whose story we enter into. The installation includes a video-creation made in collaboration with Noemí Luz (choreography & dance) and Jorge Vega Jiménez (illustration & animation), dramatizing the emotional journey that the mother lives through.
"During the interviews I observed that in a lot of cases the detonator that made them realize that what was happening was intolerable was their children, and it occurred to me this could be an interesting channel to help connect the spectator with the story of psychological abuse that I want to talk about.”
La Tercera Mirada is currently open to the public in Sala de exposiciones Ca l'Anita in Roses, Girona. Read more...
