Of Sheherazade tells in twelve choreographies an adventure that suggests some of the threads that weave the multifaceted feminine essence. The show is a powerful narrative built with perfectly spun solos and choral choreographies. Her character combines the individual uniqueness of each performer and the overwhelming force of the group. This woman, who represents all women, navigates the story and shares with the audience her knowledge, contradictions, loves, dislikes, strengths, fragilities, insecurities, dissatisfactions and loneliness. With an open soul, she communicates her relationship with the body, desire, motherhood and the equality not yet achieved, …
The choreographies gather a feminine diversity that take over the action to conquer the stage in a real and symbolic way. There are 13 women who storm the stage, which is the stage of life. They are all women with a strong singularity. Women who think in choreographic and musical keys the plurality of the gender they represent, beyond the differences, whether physical, ethnic, religious, cultural or aesthetic.
Of Sheherazade explores the popular and classical musical repertoire, with a special focus on Moroccan music. Working with scores, reinterpreting them and adapting classical fragments in a flamenco key. But fundamentally, the show comes up with original music composed by Rubén Levaniegos, together with Sergio Ménem and David Moñiz, directed by María Pagés, based on the dramaturgical story and the lyrics created for the play. The music, therefore, is a free and hospitable dialogue between classical, popular and flamenco music, performed by a string and percussion quartet, accompanied by an Arabic voice and two flamenco voices.
