LUCÍA is a short dance film that immerses itself in the mythology of the martyr and reinterprets her figure through dance and shibari. Under the artistic and choreographic direction of Verònica Hernández Royo, choreographer and director of Cia La Dama, together with the artistic direction in shibari of Alberto Moral and with the photography and production direction of Christopher Picón, LUCÍA embodies the process of sanctification experienced by the martyr in her passage from woman to saint. The dancers of La Dama star in a whole ritual that starts from purity and evolves to eroticism, rejection, torture, passes through revelation, fear, acceptance and culminates in the glorification of the woman's body.
