THE HOLY TRINITY
The Holy Trinity is a visceral exploration of the concept of woman and how, since its origin, it has been one of the most malleable and vilified words in history. Being a woman has been conditioned by external factors such as society, politics, or religion, which have influenced the collective and personal mental construction of the role of the female gender.
The choreographer Eduardo Vallejo Pinto pushes us to a physical and introspective work that shakes our vital ecosystem and the erroneous and absolute creations on feminine archetypes and expresses it with an articulation of the language based on a methodology of its own that has as a focus that the movement of each individual is as unique as a fingerprint.
After a complex research process that went through places as personal as the dancers’ life experiences, historical facts or more contemporary references such as video games and movies, The Holy Trinity emerges as a struggle that we feel as a tense choreography, between what we know and what we think we know.
Without a doubt an inexhaustible journey that exposes this historical and social burden that we have inherited and of which there is only one way to get rid; to cut off the rotten roots of this legacy. The Holy Trinity does not end when the work is finished, it continues to resonate by leaving us with open questions that throb in the depths of our consciousness and to which we can only respond ourselves.
