Rhythm of Life
Rhythm of Life is inspired by the marine world: it stages movements of the ocean and its creatures, such as seaweed, octopuses and swarms of fish. By combining them with Samba dance moves, the choreography also links to the carnival tradition of Águilas.
The dance was accompanied by a specially composed, rhythmic piece of music. The performers wore a costume with colourful patterns and a textile fin on one arm. It represented a fusion of humans and sea creatures. Rhythm of Life was performed on the beach, on studio stages, and at the historical castle of Águilas.
