Mario Maya

Original title

¡Ay…Jondo!

Mario Maya dramatises the verses and poems of Juan de Loxa in support of the gypsy people.

As the director and choreographer of the Gypsy Theatre of Andalusia, Mario Maya used the work of Juan de Loxa to highlight the persecution suffered by the Spanish gypsies, with the aim of supporting and dignifying the gypsy race at the height of the Spanish political transition.
This choreography was performed by Maya himself together with Carmen Cortés, and successfully combines purism with experimentation. Maya also composed the music, inspired by popular flamenco songs. The piece was performed to great acclaim at various international dance festivals such as those of Arles, Venice, Freiberg and Berlin.
