A dancer in a scarlet flamenco dress, with hair in a long braid down the back, ruffles tumbling onto the floor in a train, stands with her back to us, facing a dimly lit line of nine seated musicians.

Searching for meaning in the art of flamenco, María Pagés beautifully blends art and life in her in-depth explorations of the genre itself. An Ode to Time is a journey of reflection, an allegory of the time we live in filled with infinite possibilities. Her powerful, emotive gestures and ferocious footwork combine to create a performance that is theatrical and passionate, whilst also reflective. María Pagés was recently awarded the 2022 Princess of Asturias Award For The Arts for her talent and commitment to Flamenco.

Accompanied by eight dancers and a delicate original score, An Ode to Time looks at darkness and light, the chance of happiness in uncertain times and the nature of time itself. Working with her long-time collaborator El Arbi El Harti, Pagés’s swift and incisive choreography draws from a variety of flamenco styles and inspirations.

In golden light, a man with short dark hair, wearing a long black shirt over a full black skirt, looks upwards, his arms forming a sinuous s-shape: the right arm is twisted elbow up, hand pointing downwards, the left arm is lifted in a curve, the hand pointing upwards.
