Movement vs Stillness
‘Que nos quiten lo bailao’ this expression literally means ‘let them take away the dance I already danced’ in Spain, the land of flamenco, the idea of pleasure is readily identified with the all-embracing experience of dance.
Can you capture the passion and emotion of flamenco in a still picture? The exhibition currently showing at Huis Marseille ‘Dancing Light – Let it move you…’ proves that it can.
The exhibition explores how photography, alongside film and video, turns out to be an ideal way to illuminate the characteristics emotionality, the transport of dance and its ‘primal power’ to move us. A photograph is a photograph, and a dance is a dance: stillness versus movement.
