The heightened machismo that punctuates and dramatizes Argentine dances like the Zamba
becomes a psycho-sexual motif in Buenos Aires-based choreographer Diana Szeinblum’s newest work Adentro! Three virtuosic performers move to the pulse of an irresistible and rhythmically dynamic sound score by Axel Krygier and Simón Díaz, as they celebrate and deconstruct the drama and intensity of Argentine movement and music forms with ferocity, nuance, and humor. After a research process exploring kinetic folk material, such as tutorials, manuals, tapes and even work with a specialized master, Szeinblum and her dancers were inspired to invent choreographic combinations that give life to new forms,
while experimenting with the richest aspects and attitudes of influential music and dance traditions. Szeinblum won the prestigious Teatro del Mundo Award (for her work Alaska, seen at REDCAT in 2007), received two Trinidad Guevara Awards, and the Coca Cola
Award for dance.
