An intensely physical and musical dialogue about the mystery of the night.
The alternation of light and dark in nature has always fascinated people. This interest stems from the desire to understand the world around us and gain insight into the laws to which it is subject. The mystery that surrounds the night and its expression in music and movement is one of the pillars of the performance La Noche Eterna (The Eternal Night).
It is this imagination of the eternal night that choreographer Samir Calixto and the prestigious Ensemble Black Pencil are searching for. They have found each other in the desire to create a performance based on existing compositions (from baroque to contemporary repertoire) and new choreography, which together make tangible our archetypal relationship to the dark side of nature. It is a dialogue with the unknown: not from the audacious desire to bring light into darkness, but as the acceptance of night as part of our existence.
La Noche Eterna promises to be a physically intense and profound performance – characteristic of Calixto’s oeuvre – enhanced by the musical richness and artistic originality of the Ensemble. It is a dialogue with the unknown: not from the audacious desire to bring light into darkness, but as the acceptance of night as part of our existence.
