Maria Pagés takes her solidarity project Fukushima, Mi Amor to the Waiwai Hall in Fukushima, on May 20th, within her Japanese tour. With this initiative, Maria wishes to share her love of the Art of Flamenco with the children and parents of this city, devastated by the tragic nuclear accident that took place in March, 2011.
In the words of the choreographer and dancer, this is "a scenic proposal, in which the performance and a creative workshop interact in a participative and recreational environment, joining together dance, song, music and humor. We are doing this to draw the children and families of Fukushima closer to the aesthetic emotions to be found in Flamenco."
Fukushima, Mi Amor fits into the framework of Utopia's Japanese tour, that takes place from May 18th to 25th in the Bunkamura Orchard Hall, Tokyo, the Kitakami Sakura Hall, Kitakami (a city in one of the regions most affected by the tsunami, where children will be able to attend an open rehearsal before the show) and the Hyogo Performing Arts Center, Hyogo.
Fukushima, Mi Amor is a Maria Pagés Company initiative, backed by the Spanish Embassy in Japan, the Loewe Foundation, Bunkamura Waiwai Hall and the Artedea Association.
