A new iteration of a solo contemporary-flamenco work FORGE will be presented at Parramasala Festival on Saturday 10 March 2018.
Now being realised as a full-length version (previously 30 mins) with gorgeous Sephardi vocals by Helen Rivero, co-composition by Marianthe Loucataris and Peter Kennard and costume design by Tobhiyah Feller.
FORGE is a metaphor for the human soul that is beaten and shaped through life. Fragments of memories are revealed through a pentagram, images of civil war are inspired by Picasso’s iconic ‘Guernica’, Garcia Lorca’s poetry and ancient voices. Evoking the blacksmith’s iron furnace, FORGE recasts the soulful flamenco through contemporary dance, Sephardi song and the percussive power of the piano.
