About Las Alegrías

Acclaimed dancer and choreographer Paula Quintana brings her award-winning dance piece Las Alegrías (The Joys) to The Coronet Theatre for its UK premiere. Las Alegrías (The Joys) focuses on joy as a generating, transforming and revolutionary power - an accompanied solo dance exploring joy as a vital and political act. Performed in a body of water in the shadow of a suspended meteorite, this moving piece is a multidisciplinary spectacle blending dance with the texts of feminist writer and activist Roy Galán. Paula Quintana is an internationally recognised performer from Spain, who creates work across theatre, dance and audio-visual mediums. This choreographed installation embarks on a journey through a performers body that withdraws and rises, concentrating all the creative, feminine and mysterious power of joy. In Las Alegrías (The Joys) she expresses the committed leap of an artist determined to let herself be transformed by life and by the stage. Age Recommendation: 12+
