“Pagés was always in full control of her impressive gifts, including an impeccable flamenco technique and the ability to communicate both ferocious erotic appeal and sly wit.” (Herald Tribune, USA)

With undeniable panache comes carefully polished and highly personalized flamenco in the form of the great María Pagés, who will be gracing the stage of Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier to the delight of one and all. Famous the world over for her unique approach to flamenco – she was one of the first to view it as a constantly evolving art form – the famous Seville dancer will present Autorretrato, a flamboyant self-portrait created in New York at the instigation of Mikhaïl Baryshnikov. She will be accompanied onstage by 6 musicians (two guitarists, a cellist, a percussionist, two singers) and 8 dancers. The piece is punctuated by the voice of the late lamented Portuguese poet José Saramago (Nobel prize for literature), adding a vibrant lyrical tone. A must-see.

Length: 1 h 40
April 4, 5, 6, 2013
Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts
A Danse Danse / Place des Arts co-presentation
