Moi & Les Autres (Me and the Others)
Presented by Springboard Performance's 2016 Fluid Festival
La Otra Orilla (Myriam Allard)
"Catch this incredible show in which the rhythms of a hybrid, uninhibited flamenco dazzle through the steps of exceptional dancers and musicians. Its an audacious, poetic and sublime piece."
- Huffington Post
Charismatic dancer-choreographer Myriam Allard and the singer and director Hedi Graja reaffirm their unique style of reinvented flamenco. Hybrid, iconoclastic and poetic. Performing in an ongoing dialogue with the three musicians, Allard presents a spirited variation on the multiple ways of communicating with the other. Between solitude and fusion, mystery and the familiar, the other offers a reflection or leaves an impression that is felt deep in the flesh. And here the other is not only the human spirit, but also music and song.
Updating its age-old codes and stripped of its costumes and traditional figures, this flamenco vibrates with sincerity and depth, with the intensity of the dancers presence and the powerful emotions it evokes.
