About

KENNEDY CENTER DEBUT
Compañía María Pagés
María Pagés, Artistic Director
 
Utopía
U.S. PREMIERE
 
"Pagés has the charisma, the crowd-pleasing technique, and the commanding choreography to hold an audience."--The Daily Telegraph (London)
 
"Utopía is a subtle staging, harmonious and theatrical."--El Mundo (Spain)
 
"The leading innovator of modern flamenco" (The New York Times), Spain-based dancer and choreographer María Pagés brings the U.S. premiere of her 2011 work Utopía for her company's Kennedy Center debut. Drawing from her personal and artistic inspirations, Utopía consists of eight parts, or "landscapes," and includes seven flamenco dancers and live musicians joining Pagés on stage.
 
An emotional reflection on the yearning, imagination, and instincts that we all possess, the work represents Pagés's admiration for late Portuguese writer José Saramago and Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. Her choreography emulates the curved lines of his drawings, which Niemeyer said he found in "the mountains in my country, in the sinuosity of its rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds in the sky, [and] in the body of my favorite woman." 

Performance Timing: 80 minutes, with no intermission.
