PERFORMANCES OF DANCES of the Orient along the Romani Trail from India to Spain. http://youtu.be/9xTLz4aGdaA
DANCE DRAMA PERFORMANCES:
Lucia’s dance drama performances are influenced by the energy that fuels Roma , Indian, Arabic, Persian and Turkish dances and intertwining contemporary ideas and aesthetics, creating innovative and thought provoking dance drama pieces, art that inspires, heals and communicates. Such works include:
‘Romani Trail a journey of Duende’ The show was born from the need to tell the story of the Rom, with its traditions, its love story and sufferings and to find out that it’s nice to be Rom… the show is a rich tapestry made of light, color, poetry, rhythm, music and dance. Under the eyes of the viewer comes to life the universe of the Rom, beyond the stereotypes, through the rich tradition of an ancient culture, rejectingapproval. A surprising proud culture and very free.
‘La Dea si Rivela’ (The Goddess reveals herself) a thought provoking piece where she invokes the dark mysteries of woman through the beating of an archaic rhythm with her frame drum, as the spider who bites la tarantata and leading from her womb with the powerful dance of the Turkish Roma;
