Alvaro Martinez León and Lola Rubio build a show with a minimum of resources. Two bodies, a guitar, a trumpet and a few accessories. This 'constraint' gives rise to a work that focuses on the interaction between the two artists, their bodies, the sound, the space, the misappropriated cultural reference, the desacralized artistic action, the everyday operation turned.
TRAURIGER FLAMENCO: ENTHÜLLUNGEN
Alvaro Martinez León und Lola Rubio bauen eine Show mit einem Minimum an Mitteln auf. Zwei Körper, eine Gitarre, eine Trompete und ein paar Accessoires. Aus dieser "Beschränkung" entsteht ein Werk, das sich auf die Interaktion zwischen den beiden Künstlern, ihren Körpern, dem Klang, dem Raum, der entfremdeten kulturellen Referenz, der entsakralisierten künstlerischen Aktion und dem alltäglichen Betrieb konzentriert.
Lola Rubio and Alvaro Martinez León use their technical skills (music, dance, performance), forged by years of experience in a variety of performing areas, while at the same time exploring everyday actions superimposed on musical archetypes familiar to the audience. This is one of the main issues at stake in the duo's performativity, the dissociation between an action that the spectator might feel able to perform at any moment, and an action that only an experienced artist can perform on stage (with a degree of technicality).
The two artists choose musical material that is clearly identified in the collective memory, songs or 'totem' styles from popular culture. Each of these musical materials is accompanied by a bodily and cultural imagination, which Alvaro and Lola set about reinterpreting, often through incursions into desacralisation. It is the introduction of this non-normativity into actions linked to everyday life, into the ready made, that once again brings about the dissociation, the contrast sought by the Madrid-born duo.
Las Santas Inocentes consciously draft or evade speech and text. They offer a sensible experience based on physical and sonic ambushes, playing with the perception of signs and representations. Their repertoire is eclectic and above all guided by the roots of each piece in their emotional memory.
