The fifth and sixth Spanish Dance and Flamenco students from the Kina Jimenez Dance Conservatory, Almeria, are lucky to have their art on the El Ejido Auditorium tonight. This is part of the 45th ElEjido Theater Festival.
It is here that Daniel Dona, Granada's choreographer, will perform Fronterizas. This is a unique piece she created for twenty students at the Conservatory. They will be able to show the importance of women in history, social invisibility, and the sacrifices they made. .
Tonight's proposal is notable for its feminism. The choreographer explains, "When we started the project, our goal was give value to female figures in everyday life as well as in the creative act."
The work also aims to explore different forms of Spanish dancing, but "from another location, from contemporary dance."
This means that the premiere of this choreographic work is part of the "Danzavanza" project. It involves choreographing with a choreographer of high reputation by students of the Conservatory of Dance's last two years of professional training, and alternate the specialties to which it is destined.
The 2019/20 academic year saw the start of the work with Daniel Dona, which was then interrupted by the pandemic. However, the work has been carried on.
Mixolidias, which Francisco Lorenzo choreographed for Classical Dance, will be also restored tonight.
This project presents a challenge to the students and gives them the chance to work with a professional choreographer.
