Lord of Dance:
A Focus on Carlos Saura
This retrospective showcases a selection of works from filmmaker Carlos Saura, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Brimming with vibrant passion for music, art and dance, Saura’s work displays his dedication to culture and creativity.
A cinematic collage of incredible music, extraordinary dance forms and stunning visuals, this musical explores the folkloric tradition of the music and dance of Mexico.
An intimate engagement with the vivacity and charisma of the jota, a waltz-like castanet dance originating in the province of Aragon, the birthplace of Carlos Saura.
In his final film before his death in 2023, Carlos Saura investigates how “the wall” ties in with the evolution and relationship of art, acting as a creative canvas for thousands of years.
All sessions will be preceded by the short film Goya: May 3.
In this short work, Carlos Saura “repaints” Francisco de Goya’s canvas ‘The Third of May 1808’. An innovative audio-visual project that offers a cinematographic recreation of Goya's iconic painting.
