Colores is a piece of work where choir, two flamenco singers, two dancers, a guitarist and a lightpreformer, with the language of flamenco, investigates the different borderlands of existence. What exist where night meets day, weeping meets laughter, movement meets stillness, sound meets silence? What exist where life meets death?
The show is a intercultural cooperation between Sweden and Mexico, where the mexican dancer Ricardo Rubio has been invited to work with flamencoartists from World Dance Company and the choir Voces Flamencas.
The show is presented as a continuously flow where the audience enters in a ongoing activity without beginning or end. We presume that the human being is able to go deep into her own mental space with the guidance of sound, light, movements and the contrasts between those. We believe that in the borderland between different extremes our senses strengthens.
