La Veronal expands Buñuel’s surrealist universe with a choreographic creation of hypnotic effects
Sonoma is a word that does not exist, but it contains the particles of the Greek soma (body) or the Latin sonum (sound): body of sound or sound of body. It could be, as Marcos Morau explains, the sound of the falling body. Or the cry of feeling alive, like the deafening beat of Calanda’s drums. Inspired by Buñuel, in 2016 Morau created a piece for the Ballet de Lorraine entitled Le Surréalisme au service de la Révolution. Sonoma is an extension of that choreography and a clear break with his previous creation, Pasionaria. Now the atavistic is more important than the robotic. The human soul has returned with movements and hypnotic aesthetics reminiscent of old cultures and rituals.
