A sacrifice enacted before the audience's eyes.

 

Conceived and directed by Argentinean choreographer Anabella Lenzu, "Sangre y Arena" (Blood and Sand) is a visceral piece of dance-theater that reconnects with the primal impulses that underlie ritual, juxtaposing intellect and instinct.In this interdisciplinary, multimedia production with projections, paints, water, and masks, Lenzu rediscovers ceremony and heritage.

 

In our fast-paced society, where technological "connectedness" too often replaces real interpersonal connection, "Sangre y Arena" calls for a return to ritual. In a move away from the purely spectacular and presentational side of dance, Lenzu reconnects choreographically with the primal impulses of art and creation.

 

The sacrifice of the bull is the central image in the ancient cult of Roman Mithraism. The dramatic iconography of Mithraism-the God Mithras is born from a rock, feasts with the Sun and commands the constellations-provides the inspiration for a new movement vocabulary. By reenacting roles in ancient animal-human combat and rites of passage, "Sangre y Arena" explores the tensions between primitive nature and human sophistication. The performers slide between the artistic disciplines of painting, speaking and dancing, while projections show images from the underground temples to Mithras.

 

"Sangre y Arena" calls for a return to ritual. In a move away from the purely spectacular and presentational side of dance, Lenzu reconnects choreographically with the primal impulses of art and creation.
