“Any steps that society takes towards utopia generate dystopia. The protagonist in this story lives within an apparently ideal (and therefore non-existent and broken) society where individual personality is negated. She questions the life she has lived – and still lives – and because of that life, she is judged and mistreated in every conceivable way. This is a show whose content is deep and disturbing, yet full of light and beauty, a show that will allow the spectator to enjoy flamenco, dance and music going hand-in-hand with the emotional charge of the story.”

As a concept, dystopia describes an imaginary and undesirable world where reality blurs with nightmare, a world where the contradictions in what people say are taken to their most extreme conclusions.

The story moves between reality and dreams, truth and delirium, through an imaginarium of intertwining sound and movement, becoming a game of impulses that follows a woman in a seemingly pleasant society, but which at its core imprisons this woman and strips her of her own being, almost her own body, transforming her into a kind of automaton with pre-set movements. This story takes a lot of inspiration from the reality that we live in, showing us a side of the world that is hidden and which is lived in silence and solitude, exploring our present reality with the intention of telling how some of society’s controlling mechanisms create unjust and cruel systems.

It all starts with celebration and memory, which introduce the metronome that, as a leitmotif, continually sets the tempo of life, the physical domination of men who she hopes to emulate, the need to love, madness in the face of the impossibility of escaping society. Fiction overcomes reality, giving way to an existence made up of fragments of destroyed and undesirable dreams, where the protagonist ends up crushed by her experiences, and we travel towards the depths of our emotions.
