Entitled Gold Dust Rush, the choreography alludes to a festive delirium or mystical fever, a physiological disorder that is at the core of this show. The dancer and choreographer Eulàlia Bergadà proposes a visual and sound journey around the concept of delirium, seen here as a cathartic state (at once liberating and destructive), caused by the illusory fascination with any kind of fetish – whether sacred or profane – that envelopes and bewitches us with its promises of happiness and unlimited ecstasy.

This disorder brought on by delirium sweeps through the body, opening up other landscapes that, appearing as ‘gardens of delight’ or ‘earthly paradises’, are in fact more akin to hell or a torture chamber. From them springs a frenetic movement that transforms our golden dreams into mere bodily dust. Allegorical images representing desire, light, flesh or dreams, create spaces of innocence, perversion, euphoria and passion, turning mystical or religious experiences into a frenzy of vanity and lust.

Gold Dust Rush won the 2015 Dance Prize of the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, awarded by IT Dance to promote the work of young creators and performers by offering grants for production and exhibition.
