Igor x Moreno - Karrasekare

Igor x Moreno - Karrasekare

Karrasekare is the latest work by Igor x Moreno (choreographers Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas) and is inspired by the pagan carnival traditions from Sardinia and the Basque Country.

The work draws from pre-Christian rituals: it looks back at a time when the beginning of Spring was not called carnival*, yet; a time in which the Spring Solstice called for a celebration of the flesh.

Karrasekare revisits the past to enter the future. It uses traditional rhythms - the same ones that have accompanied our dances for centuries - to create free, fluid and queer identities. It unroots these pagan rituals from their original context - the streets, the squares - to re-imagine them inside a black box.

Filled with the danger of dancing, singing and drinking together, Karrasekare channels the energy of a folk festival and rubs against our sense of prudishness.

*the word ‘carnival’ (from latin ‘remove meat’) referred originally to the Christian practice of abstaining from meat during Lent.
