5xLorca (Lorca by 5) Five flamenco choreographers create works celebrating Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. A passionate advocate of the art of flamenco, Andalusian traditions and liberal politics, Lorca’s work speaks unflinchingly of our collective humanity.
In 5xLorca, each choreographer works from a randomly selected piece by Lorca, responding to the author’s work. Through music, dance and poetry we experience the fierce, poetic, sensual, heartbreaking, reflective, chaotic and joyful parts of human experience and are reminded of what unites us.
