'Spiritual Boyfriends' by Núria Guiu premiere at Festival Grec de Barcelona the 22nd july
Sociology, anthropology and movement combine in a production dedicated to the relationship between the body and power, based on the postures of yoga, a powerful industry that also symbolises the spirituality of our times. It’s about how a practice so closely linked to our inner, spiritual world has become a big industry and in what way today new digital technologies enable the continued dissemination of this hybrid of Indian culture and physical disciplines that originated in the West. Because these days, it plays an important role in constructing our bodies, and, especially, in constructing the image we project onto them. Likewise, it influences our private imaginary in relation to spirituality or the amorous relationships we maintain.
