Luis Garay


In South-America the young Colombian Luis Garay is considered to be one of the most promising choreographers of his generation. Maneries is a solo he created for dancer Florencia Vecino, which is accompanied live on stage by the electromusic of dj Mauro Ap. Luis Garay sees the body as linguistic material. In Maneries he works with iconic symbols which show the body as a carrier of all sorts of possible meanings, perceptions and experiences. In this intense performance Garay pushes the dancer to her own limits. The press was wildly enthusiastic : “Florencia Vecino delivers an unforgettable performance with an overwhelming technique and energy. A tornado...unforgettable”, according to the Argentine site Página 12. “Maneries is pure Vertigo”, even states.
