Sony Centre for the Performing Arts
1 Front St E
Presented in collaboration with Sony Centre for the Arts and Toronto International Flamenco Festival
Dancer, choreographer and conceptual artist, Maria Pagés is the most internationally renowned Flamenco artist in the world. Since 1990, when María Pagés Compañía was first founded, Pagés has created a fiercely traditional yet boldly modern Flamenco dance vocabulary.
Invited by Mikhail Baryshnikov to dance at the Baryshnikov Art Centre, Pagés began the creation of AUTORRETRATO (Self Portrait), the show she is bringing to the Sony Centre next Spring.
Baryshnikov had asked for a personal performance, one that depicted both the dancer and the woman. Pagés discovered they were one in the same, “The truth of the matter is that dance is the only medium that I have found to get to know myself.”
María Pagés Compañía, featuring Pagés, eight dancers and six musicians live on stage will make only one appearance only in Toronto!
