Noemí Luz is a dance artist who's work spans traditional, contemporary and experimental flamenco. Her choreographic practice is a unique investigation into the art form, embracing flamenco as an expressive language capable of embodying the present moment, illustrating the times we live in and addressing the issues we face. Noemí is interested in the challenge of finding ways of giving a physical form to elements, concepts and emotions that don't necessarily already have one and bringing a human perspective to complex issues in order to understand them better, centering around the environment and feminism as core themes.
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...
