La Monarca: The Monarch and the Butterfly Effect (Flamenco)

Rotary Centre for the Arts presents A Flamenco Dance Show
La Monarca: The Monarch and the Butterfly Effect
with Flamenco Rosario

The monarch butterfly’s sleepy transformation from its caterpillar stage is akin to how I felt when I began researching La Monarca: The Monarch and the Butterfly Effect. It was as if I was emerging from an artistic metamorphosis and awakening to a renewed life of creative maturity with its freedom to embrace risks.

La Monarca, reflects on my continual motion, travelling between mexico where I was born, Spain – the Mecca of Flamenco, and Canada – my new home. Being a migrant between three homes reminded of the recurrent autumn pilgrimage of the monarch butterflies between Canada and Mexico. “How do they do it?” It is not difficult to guess; it is connected to survival.

The monarch’s cycle of life and constant migration gave me a understanding of this unique and magnificent creature and provided me with an insight into my own motivations and driving force.

La Monarca is a very personal work – emotional, and resonant with the meaning of my life. La Monarca ties into many elements that I have been interested in developing over the years – growing from diverse inspirations, small experiments, past collaborations, and even some large successes on my journey. I look at these antecedents, seeing some that grew, unexpectedly, from small ideas – a minor movement and a vision just glimpsed – brought together into this new work, emergent, beautiful and unexpected: the butterfly effect.
