"FIVE STUDIES FOR BAILAORAS"

scenography and lighting design

A flamenco performance with five dance acts combined to the poetry of João Cabral de Melo Neto, Brazilian poet who lived in Sevilla and wrote with great mastery about such art.

Grupo Aire y Compás is composed by the students led by Marilyn, who usually do an end-year presentation: "Poesia Bailada" (2007); "Danza" (2008); "Rompecabezas" (2009); "Desejo Andaluz" (2010); and "Siete" (2011). Ana Clara Joly also did the lighting design for three performances of Cia. Almaire: "Cinco estudos para bailaoras" (2012), "Essência" (2012), and "Encuentro" (2013).
