Bora Bora is proud to be the host and co-producer of the world premiere of talented Selene Muñoz's latest performance "Libertad". In the piece Selene takes her highly personal and modern flamenco style on a journey with electric boogie dancer Benjamin Skop and contemporary dancer Alexandre Bourdat through each of their own cultural backgrounds, traditions, history and technique. In "Libertad" they try to create a new fusion of tradition and contemporary movements - a new freedom - and give the audience a great experience through music, dance, lighting and set design.
Selene Muñoz searches for personal freedom and asks the question: What does freedom mean to people in the Western world in this day and age?
"Passion and perfection go hand in hand. (...) In addition to admiring the flawless dancers and their great flexibility, the interaction, the playfulness and the music is infectious. (...) At just the age of 25, it is impressive that Selene Muñoz, both as a choreographer and dancer, so forcefully, consciously and consistently insists on renewing and extending the flamenco dance tradition in new directions, and so beautifully lets it interact with other dance traditions."
