Grec Festival 2016: 13 must-see shows
These are the shows you won't want to miss at the Grec Festival 2016: theatre, dance, circus, small and large format
The title of this new production reflects the question about a radical change, one that can be as fascinating as it is terrifying. 'Questcequetudeviens?' started to take shape when French flamenco dancer Stéphanie Fuster asked Aurélien Bory to create a show for her. Devoted to investigating space in his stage productions and a stranger to the world of flamenco, Bory at first refused. However, the idea gradually grew on him until he realised that he wanted to create the portrait of the dancer, not so much recounting her life as exploring the contrast between her inner world, dedicated to the solitary, repetitive practice of flamenco technique, and an external reality in which she faced all kinds of obstacles. Accompanied by live music performed by 'cantaor' Alberto García, and José Sánchez on guitar.
