'El duende y el reloj' by Javier Latorre
The choreographer Javier Latorre gave shape to the flamenco spirit through "El duende y el reloj" production, yesterday night in the Gran Teatro, a work that brings together fiction and reality through the dance, according to the original script of the tale by Philippe Donnier. The time of the show has been delayed, from 22.00 to 23.00, because of the football match of Spain. This is the first production of Latorre for his new company, Requetedanza. The production has been designed in order to understand flamenco easily, using the new technologies and animation.

According ti the title of this production, the "duende", magician (Karen Lugo), and the watch, "el reloj", are the main characters of this show. The first one, the "duende" is the innovator, and the second one is characterized by its immobility, a posture that the magician treis to change all along the show, showing the watch the different "palos" of the flamenco. Latorre also made appear other historical characters such as Léonard de Vinci, René Descartes, Albert Einstein or Salvador Dali; he used the Soft Watches like as an excuse to explain the slowing down of the fandangos ryhthm.
