Dancing flamenco for a fairer world

Earlier that day Pablo had not shut up for the entire two-hour workshop. While he paid attention to the instructions of dance teacher José Galán he was, at the same time, unruly. And when he arrived at the theatre in the Museo Picasso with the rest of his companions for the very first time, he was like a caged lion.

“What I really love is dancing,” he told Lucía Vázquez, the head of education at the gallery.

The suitably-named Pablo is one of the young people with Down’s Syndrome who took part on Wednesday in the activities organised by the MPM (Museo Picasso Malaga) as part of the United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

In the auditorium Reyes Vergara and Helliot Baeza, both also with Down’s Syndrome, starred in a show titled “In our right minds”, performed by José Galán’s Compañía de Flamenco Integrado.

The show was the fruit of a collaboration between the dance company and the Asociacíon Down Málaga. “This is the first time we have programmed an integrated flamenco show for this day – in other years we have had a ballet show,” said Vázquez. She went on to say that people with Down’s Syndrome perform in a way that is “very engaging – less adult but more natural because they don’t have the same inhibitions as us”.

Ninety people visited the Museo Picasso on Wednesday for the event which includes the presence of the Obra Social La Caixa and brings together groups working towards the social integration of persons with disabilities.

At the same time, 72 associations read a manifesto in the Plaza de la Constitución which called for public institutions, distracted by internal matters, to recognise their obligations and asked for a greater push for society to “always include the perspective of persons with disabilities and prevent them being invisible”.
