“A Body Is,” Featuring Marco Flores Dance Company
August 19, 2021
At the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, rising musician Antonio José Martínez Palacios was executed without a trial at just 33 years old. To pay tribute, the Madrid-based Marco Flores Dance Company teamed up with filmmaker Jaime Dezcallar to revisit and reimagine his music through this dance film. To a stirring original score by Tagore González, based on Palacios’ “¡Ay, amante mío!,” the dancers perform a mix of flamenco, contemporary and ballet movements choreographed by Flores.
