Contemporary dance, theatre and baroque music meet in an interdisciplinary dialogue. The dancer and choreographer from Córdoba, Antonio Ruz, has based the work on the repertoire of dance and music coloured by the Spanish image and its influence on French society during the reign of Louis XIV. His aim is to create a new programme based on contemporary dance and to seek other forms of perception. Musicians and dancers produce a performance full of contrasts, of light and shade, surprising and new; in a word, Baroque.
