Beginning with the paintings of Varo and Carrington, Linares focused on developing this proposal which, in his own words, does not seek to faithfully reproduce oil paintings. It is a personal process in which each character’s identity is built and in which each dancer, from his appearance, movements and sensations, expresses his feelings through the body. There is an intimate act and a connection of emotions. Painted in white, it hovers and moves throughout the space to communicate, with the whole body, with every sensation. This dynamism was motivated by the encounter of colours, shapes, strokes, themes and expressive elements found in surrealist paintings, which inspired this work.

On Tales and bulldozersLinares says the artists’ figurative images, associated with surrealism, were the source of illumination for creating this proposal. For the director, suggestive works full of images and sensations, touching our subconscious and archetypes, are the basis for assimilating the poetics, energy and dynamics. From every oil painting, as translators, there is a search for movements based on honesty, depth, and originality. From this process came the fairies, those mysterious females, sometimes annoying and wild as hell.

Tales and bulldozers It appears in two moments. During the first, the female actress danced the dreamlike side full of poetry in Farrow and Carrington’s paintings. Then, in the second, the male intervenes in the atmosphere of the Drags Queen’s party, telling us what we call the hidden life of the clouds. It is important to note that this is not a show. All the work depends on the training of Putu’s dance. From this magic, every moment will be revealed to the viewers, who will approach their imaginations, experiences and visions to make their own interpretations.
