Birds Girls

The piece that these two young dancers have chosen to perform in Bastardo is "Bird Girls" a duo by Stephanie Rutherford. Through it they intend to symbolize the experience of the essential union and the different states of the soul in its most mystical journey.

As the name of the piece says, the two bird girls will aim to blur their physical and earthly side, so that the poetic world can emerge. Another reality appears and takes force, which is expressed through the body as a channel.

Reality transcends the limits of what can be grasped through reason. Communication can only be from soul to soul. The most important thing is to have the motivation, to cross the limits and to put passion in each movement.

The feeling that is expressed is one of union, of strength, of protection, of connection with an inner world, spiritual and magical. Moving the world of dance with a dreamlike and special piece to a place of the characteristics of Bastard, is a challenge and a luxury for the senses, which both are wishing to realize.

See you at the artistic bastard hostel!
