La Sagra

La Sagra shows a square dance in a literal sense: there is dancing on a public square, in a quadrangle. Elderly couples draw their circles, sometimes in small formations. there is leeway for deviations. The music changes, men and women have arranged themselves in several rows. The ground is occupied playfully, paced in dance. Later, teenagers gyrate their pelvises. One joins a row, one spreads out. The bodies remain in movement and move ehythmically between a shared experience and a losing of oneself as an individual. What a wonderful world.
