There are wet lands, and fires that extend with the air.
There are salty waters, and winds that lift the sand.
There are fast airs, and waters that move in their way.
There are fires that the water does not extinguish, and land seems to be burned.
We are born and die on land, in water, in air or in fire. We grow and live in roots, in origins, but we also dream and move forward in time. We walk on earth, some flying through the water, and others swimming through the sky. We lighten with flames the most secret passions which stays deep in the heart, we don’t want share more.
The 4 elements—a spectacle which Adrián Santana, the dancer and choreographer, ventures to enter in a new journey where inspired by the four elements, which four artists including Adrian himself, are presented as the roots which tries to strengthen the foundations of their own soil, as the streams of water that generate their senses, as the breeze that emanates from all that, through the fire of flamenco.
Without borders or hideouts, without fear or emptiness, these four artists come to show us, presenting themselves as the four key elements of this work, myriads of sensations embodied in what binds them, the Flamenco, inspired by the Earth, in the Water, in the Air and into the Fire.
