Synopsis

In order to say what "El Cielo" is not, we'll call it a fantasy. It doesn't describe events, or even the stirrings of the soul. But impressions, visions. Audible and tangible deeds. From the asceticism of "Means," a mere contemplation of nature, that is to say, of man, of the physiognomy of his sound organ.

Up to the extasis of "Merging bodies", the drunkeness of dissolving into another and into everything. All by way of contemplation, because it is through contemplation that action and fusion arise. Following the manner of the renaissance mystics, this isn't merely a choreographic proposal, but a healing experience (or illuminating, or simply receptive). A revelation, an encounter with our corpus delicti. A revision of the modern "Science of love" which Plato presents in the Socratian dialogues. Give birth to light, be light. Inhabit our light, our darkness.

"El Cielo de tu Boca" is an encounter with the body, with our own body, with our internal song and dance. A probe into the depths that will surprisingly reveal that it all begins in our skin, in the roof of our mouths.

The bell is a metaphor that was introduced into our beings, in our eardrums, as flamenco was, through the byzantine culture, in the 5th or 6th century. The delicious scientific mystery that "consumes and allows no pity" arrived to the western world in the Greek modal scales and bronze bells. Through this intimate secret, the art of flamenco has traversed the metaphor of the bell, from is origins in Amparo la Campanera, up to Estampío and his "Zapateado de las Campanas". Continuing through the "Campana Gorda", that is none other than Antonio Chacon. "El Cielo" will give voice to this secret...great voice.

If, for a second, we can get the audience not to question what they see, not try to classify and label but simply to feel their own bodies, their skin, the heaven of their mouths (what we feel in the process of creating this piece and during its performance), we will consider our objective accomplished.

Press

LE MONDE 07/05/2009
"El Cielo de tu Boca left the audience of Montpellier Danse amazed. We could even say that the Festival finished brilliantly."
(Rosita Boisseau)


EL CORREO DE ANDALUCIA 09/23/2008
"(Andrés Marín) has presented an endeavor of great elaboration and curious originality...(he danced) a highly personal farruca that we could expect to see, perhaps, in fifty years from now: Andrés premiered it last night. That´s Andrés."
(Manuel Bohórquez)


ABC 09/23/2008
"El Cielo de tu Boca simply invites us to listen and to watch. Andrés Marín listened to Llorenç Barber and together with this prestigious musician y bellmaster, has effected a show that is midway between dance and performance; between flamenco and experimental music."
(Marta Carrasco)


DIARIO DE SEVILLA 09/23/2008
"Andrés Marín, in his path of investigation based in flamenco, didn´t fail to contribute to this Bienal his peculiar way of conceiving dance, and above all, music. (...) flamenco enthusiasts enjoyed the best of Andrés´dancing in the farruca and seguiriya. A dance as special and as syncopated as always but last night flowed towards the audience like never before."
(Rosalía Gómez)


CRN GIRALDA (TV) 'Bienal al punto'
"He is one of the most brilliant dancers of our times. An explorer of new forms who reinvents himself each day. His dancing is a cry for freedom of expression in the world of flamenco dance."
(Antonio Ortega)


FLAMENCO-WORLD.COM 09/22/2008
"Andrés Marín's personal quest seems to know no limits. The Sevillian bailaor has premiered what might be the most experimental show of all the ones which have been seen at this festival. (...)He's seen here as more of a musician than ever. There's no room for anyone that isn't daring in 'El cielo de tu boca'. And the bells ring..."
(Silvia Calado)


DEFLAMENCO.COM 09/22/2008
"It's always gratifying to make the personal discovery of a genius, regardless of whether you're the last person to recognize that genius, or few people have ever taken notice of the individual. Dancer Andrés Marín, whom I saw for the first time several years ago, is a genius who enjoys (suffers?) both conditions."
(Estela Zatania)
