Guest Company La Veronal: Sonoma

"If there is a heaven, it is here and now."
Luis Buñuel 

Sonoma is not a word that you will find in a dictionary. However, it contains phonemes from Greek, soma (body) and Latin, sonum (sound): Sound body and body sound. Choreographer Marcos Morau returns to the essential concepts of a piece he created in 2016 for the Ballet de Lorraine: "Le Surréalisme au service de la Révolution" [Surrealism at the service of the Revolution], based on the figure of Luis Buñuel, and falling between medieval Calanda and cosmopolitan Paris, the Jesuit faith and surrealist freedom. That entire microcosm is developed and expanded in “Sonoma”. The piece begins with a scream and ends with a loud racket. In the middle, in a landscape between reality and fiction, a group of women try to free themselves from the bonds of the known, and cross frontiers using their intuition and instinct. When they come together, the inner cry they share is amplified, it grows until overflowing, and they celebrate it with rituals, offerings, hypnotic songs, and dances. They enter an unknown and bewildering state, a state that frees their minds but at the same time reminds them of their human condition. Sonoma is that place where the storm originates, where the drums continue to beat with a force that shakes the earth and opens a deep crack in the ground under our feet.
