ADAMA – MRCT

Adama is a dance that emerges from the depths. It is telluric dance. Of earth and convoluted roots. Of wild nature, of trees separated on the surface that confuse their roots underground, that embrace underneath in a network that connects them, makes them strong and safe. The inspiration for this new trio came to Mario Bermúdez just by looking down, seeing his feet stepping on the red earth of Vilches, looking up at the horizon from the window of his house in this town of Jaén where he saw the light , and where he now lives, creates and is based Marcat Dance, his company.  Pablo Polo’s music, created exclusively, uses the sound of a language without origin that seems but is not Arabic, Spanish, Hebrew or any other known. To the rhythm of these voices an evocative dance of nature and its free will is built, which sets these three bodies free, nevertheless trapped on an insignificant planet in the face of the greatness of its solar system. And always following the rules of nature, the choreography is circular, it begins where it ends and begins again. It is at a time cycle, continuity and eternity …
And it also happens in Adama who seems to want to reveal secrets. Secrets of the earth and the ancestors that cannot be expressed in words but that touch the sensibility, that come through the sensual and earthly movement, the evocative music, the whole atmosphere that connects with remote times and cultures from contemporary codes of dance and staging.
