Israel Galvan presents "SOLO" at Baryshnikov Arts Center
In Israel Galván’s SOLO, the physical language of flamenco is recodified, using modes of expression that are genealogically related as well as performative aspects of other rituals of popular culture, from football to activism to cross-dressing.
In constant pursuit of a dance that frees itself from the inherited features of established flamenco, Galván says: "SOLO is a coincidence — one day when I was dancing I stood still, I couldn't move, and there was no music. It was a minute of solitude. In all these years I have learned to dance alone with my solitudes. I realize the sound of my body and dance in silence."
