Moi&lesAutres, 2015

The charismatic choreographer and dancer Myriam Allard and the singer and director Hedi Graja present their reinvented flamenco in a new piece entitled Moi&lesAutres. In this solo that involves close communication with the musicians, themselves actively committed to the choreography, La Otra Orilla presents a spirited variation on the sometimes complex art of relating to one and other. And here the other is the human spirit, music, singing accompanying the movement. This production reveals yet another version of the company’s hybrid flamenco language that is iconoclast, poetic and firmly rooted in the present.
