La Burla is a choreographic fiction that follows two figures living in a dystopian reality. The encounter between the sacred and the profane takes shape in rituals and invocations of entities that emerge from the depths. Deities, witches, seers, devils, monsters and heroines cross the imaginary of this piece that investigates the relationship between choreography and fiction, activating and incorporating a medieval iconographic repertoire. Two performers on an electric yellow carpet rely on their imagination, bodies and voices to create this musical choreographic fiction.
