The Dunes of Maspalomas are a unique natural space for their beauty and the variety of ecosystems they hold. They are located in the Municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. Their 400 hectares encompass an excellent beach, a field of dunes, a forest of palm trees and a salty lagoon.
The MASDANZA Dunas program will be held on Saturday, November 21 at 6:00 p.m., at the Maspalomas Dunes Lookout Point.
NAUFRAGIO UNIVERSAL (25’)
MARCOS VARGAS & CHLOÉ BRÛLÉ
Created & Performed by: Marco Vargas & Chloé Brûlé
Music: Venetian Snares
Costumes: La Aguja en el Dedo
“Marco Vargas & Chloé Brûlé take on the challenge of facing a creation for a singular space. This time, they approach ideas such as individuality and solidarity, borders and freedom, immobility versus creativity or chaos in front of harmony, always maintaining their compromise with space and the links that emerge from it. A shipwreck will be the starting point. Human beings out of place exposed to each other, to find a way out. The need for movement will guide the way and with the help of simple elements, paths will be open, building and conquering spaces. NAUFRAGIO UNIVERSAL (Universal Shipwreck) will reveal the epic spirit of man through its fragility and survival instinct”.

“Expectations will not kill you departs from that feeling of failure that we feel when our objectives are not fulfilled. We use the metaphor of a party to reflect on the emotional instability that creates this feeling of defeat that we experience when expectations are not met. This party that you wait for so much, this party where you will meet that person you want so much…How many times have we spent the afternoon preparing ourselves for a great party, happy, imagining what the night will bring? And how many times have we come back home sad, realizing that nothing that we expected happened?”.

We celebrate that despite the uncertainty that currently exists, we remain together, because we need the same thing, an uncorked dance that floods our souls and heals this time that is so painful. Thank you sublime energy that you make bodies keep moving with strength and tenacity”.
