Have you ever dreamed of flying – of soaring with the birds in the sky?
Vuelos, a magical dance theatre work for children and families, challenges you to wonder, and to contemplate our eternal dream: to be able to fly.
Combining captivating digital animation and life-size puppets, mirrors and shadows, athletic choreography, and hypnotic music, Vuelos gives full rein to Leonardo da Vinci’s fascination with flight and the ingenious machines he devised to cross the sky and join the soaring birds.
Vuelos draws on Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings, paintings, and sculptures and his explorations of anatomy and geometry as dancers transform into magical winged creatures or embody his elegant perpetual motion machines. Bewitching, comic, and astonishingly inventive, it appeals directly to the senses and the emotions, and is aimed at children over five, with plenty to stimulate and entertain adults too.
the wings of imagination set us free
… when unfolding them, we discover a universe of dreams which give us images,
draw our anatomy,
play with geometry,
They allow us to fly.
To see nature (our own as well).
And along with dreams, to find our most secret ambitions.
A horseback journey turns us into birds
with the wings we secretly want.
And eating supper merrily (that last summer, which we tirelessly repeat!):
Welcome to the game!
To the dream!
