Spring/Summer Tour: Dosis de Paraíso (Dosis of Paradise)
A series of movesfeaturing a dual unity, without any dominant gender, without a man who must liftthe woman’s body, are an example of the satisfying power of having been illuminated by the ray of love. The embrace has been a strike, laugh, sex, caress; it has been deformed with the stress of variable dynamics motivated by repetition. Sharon Fridman’s yielding to gravity does not upset his balance. On the contrary, it generates openness, anchoring, flight, in a vibrant emotional creation that permits peace in the turbulence of the shadows. –Cintia Borges,Red escénica 2021

Oedipus sleeps, until he wakes up upon hearing the voice of a strange figure; a man who, concealed under a metal helmet, begins to tell him about a monster, a city and a reward. Oedipus, leery, rejects the mysterious figure’s invitation, but he insists until Oedipus deviates from his path, confronts the monster and, having become king, ends up entering the city of Thebes.
This new Paco Becerra production of Oedipus, Through the Flames is a joint production by the International Festival of Mérida, Pentación and the Teatro Español. Under the direction of Luis Luque, Sharon Fridman was charged with the choreography of the theatrical production.
The creative process is already underway, and audiences will be able to enjoy the premiere on August 11 at the Mérida Festival. In addition to the premiere, the production will visit Festival Sagunto a Escena and it will form part of the season at the Teatro Español (theater) in Madrid from September 8 to October 31, 2021.
We look forward to seeing you!
INA focuses its attention on the area of the body that is given to the other, or to the space that surrounds it. INA has a clear attitude regarding the surface used or offered. INA controls every movement and, at the same time, seeks freedom through corporeal knots. INA is sensitive to touch. INA is my mother and my way of understanding the body’s movements.
On August 20 and 21 Sharon Fridman will be teaching INA in Tel Aviv, Israel.
At this experience we will learn about and explore Sharon’s way of making contact with INA through exercises that will become improvisational and creative tools. The workshop is aimed at professional dancers and people with contact experience.
