MARGARITA MUNOZ ZIELINSKI

BALLET CAMARGO : DIRECTION SONIA CAYUELA.  PROGRAMA: GLORIA.  MUSICA VIVALDI.  CHOREOGRAPHY, SONIA CAYUELA.   RETAZOS FLAMENCOS.  CHOREOGRAPHY, NATALIA MESEGUER.  BENIAJAN AUDITORIUM.  FRIDAY, MAY 22, 2009.

A necessary part of the formation of a dancer is performing on the stage.  In a region like Murcia, lacking in official dance companies, the private sector offers a brave project and unique opportunity for students and dance graduates to publicly demonstrate the artistic results of their professional studies in dance.  El Ballet Camargo is one of the rare companies in Murcia capable of successfully confronting a performance in which the dancers have the opportunity to work different styles such as contemporary, classical, neoclassical and flamenco.  "Gloria", the first part of the program presented in Beniajan Auditorium, is an attractive, complete choreography, abstract and without an argument.  The movements inspired by Vivaldi's beautiful music look for the earth's strength in the form of prayer, surrounded by excellent stage design with lovely scenes of beautiful "stain glass windows" produced on cloth by Jennifer Pownall (J.P. Belmar).

The dancers more than succeed dancing in corp, groups of 3 and as soloists with movements inspired by the sacred baroque style.  In the second part, "Retazos Flamencos" is a radical change of style, another facet of the Camargo group which understands the distinct technical components, making this proper dance performance something a general public can enjoy.

EL Ballet camargo, directed by Sonia Cayuela, presents the pieces, "Gloria" and "Retazos Flamenco" this afternoon in Beniajan Auditorium.   Gloria RV 589 is one of the most well-known and popular sacred pieces by the baroque composer, Antonia Vivaldi (1678 - 1741).  Through movement, Ballet Camargo's choreographic version of this very beautiful score, inspires one to draw on the mystical luck of nature where each one celebrates in his own way his bond with mother earth.  It's movement only.  There's no conventional argument.  The wardrobe and stage design seem to evoke ancient aromas of the sacred baroque style in its union with nature, but the themes that adorn these cloths will transport the public to more evocative settings.  Clearly it will be a song to life.  "Retazos Flamencos", the second part of the performance, puts the company, directed by Sonia Cayuela, in the world orbit.  It's made up of brief flamenco dance pieces that surely give evidence of the versatility of its members.  Deep features and stylized dance for this young company's debut.

The wardrobe and stage design of this performance evoke the old fashioned, sacred baroque aesthetics.
