TIENTOS AL TIEMPO by Pablo Valbuena
Tientos al Tiempo - Pablo Valbuena y Patricia Guerrero
Contemporary Flamenco Performance, Teatros del Canal Madrid, Lux Scène Nationale de Valence, Centquatre-Paris, 2021
The Tiento is a flamenco singing and dancing style (palo). In Spanish it means to touch something you cannot see: to explore, to try, to experiment, to induce, to instigate, to stimulate.
A series of experiments that expand flamenco dance in time and space, Tientos al Tiempo uses light and sound to visualise and augment the rhythmic patterns of the compás flamenco.
This is a hybrid performance where the mixed cultural influences of flamenco are intertwined and amplified using the immersive and trans-sensory potential of digital media.
