In Flying Pigs we take a journey around Catharsis. We delve into the chaos of material to bring the senses to life in the search for an ephemeral moment of beauty and pleasure. A path of effort and renunciation where emotions are inevitably sacrificed. These emotions come from past parameters that bind us to who we were yesterday and block us inside a predetermined form that we have to be able to dismantle or discredit for it to freely become a new form – the one we desire.
The places that inspire the vitality of the work emerge from references – folkloric, sacred and artistic – derived from the colective imagination, such as festivals, concerts and discotheques, family gatherings, religious celebrations, traditions such as Mallorcan pig slaughtering and works of art like the Sistine Chapel. Song and dance have always been present in various social and cultural contexts, serving as mirrors that activate the passage between the inner and the outer, where flesh and spirit experience, live, the intangible sensual knowledge intrinsic to a new transformation, which is the essence of any act of creation.
Depending on one’s individual experience, in Flying Pigs these references are juxtaposed in a dreamlike manner to allow new images to be admitted, thus creating an interplay of poetic transferrals of images, sounds and concepts that unite to culminate in the cathartic act of delivering an audience an emotional explosion..
