5 x Lorca (Lorca by 5) is an aleatoric work by five flamenco choreographers based on works by celebrated Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. A passionate advocate of the art of flamenco, Andalusian tradition and liberal politics, Lorca’s work speaks unflinchingly of our collective humanity and the need to protect our liberty and freedom of expression. In Lorca by 5, each choreographer works from a randomly selected piece by Lorca, responding to the author’s work. Through music, dance and poetry we experience the fierce, poetic, sensual, heartbreaking, reflective, chaotic and joyful parts of human experience and are reminded of what unites us. Participating collaborators include Manuel Gutierrez, Mizuho Sato, Melissa Cruz, Clara Rodriguez and Kerensa DeMars.
