El Vestido is a small-scale, family friendly, outdoor piece Moxie Brawl is currently developing. A flamenco inspired contemporary dance duet, El Vestido brings two beautiful vintage flamenco dresses to life. Animating the dresses in the style of Chinese dragon puppetry, the two characters Anna Maria and Anna Rosa, transform from two playful monster-like creatures to two beautiful strong flamenco dancers who battle it out for the attention of the audience. We use dance, dress puppetry and audience interaction to tell our story, playing on the relationship of two strong soloists. The piece was devised with performers Annie Hanauer and Aurelie Poles. The movement is beautifully mesmerising, powerful and expressive and designed to draw audiences in if they happen upon the performance at any moment throughout the piece.
Originally commissioned by 18Hours Events for Journey’s Dance Festival at the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill-On-Sea on 31st August 2015, the show is currently 14 minutes long. In Spring 2016 we will spend time in the studio to extend the show to 20/25 minutes.
