Duende, the Golden Dark

“All that has black sounds has duende.”Manuel Torre Duende pulls light from darkness; to say a flamenco performer has great duende is the highest compliment. Lorca used it as the cornerstone of his poetics. This presentation posits that psychoanalysis is the science with duende, an art and a calling. From the psychodynamics of the color black through thanatos, interweaving Freud, Klein, Jungian alchemy, and astrology, we stop at The Matrix along the way. It concludes with a case study of an artist client’s recovery from suicidality; already creative, illuminated even more.
