Duende, from its history in Andalusian society, paradoxically teaches the performer that repression leads to expression. Lorca writes of duende manifesting through the physical boundary that is the human body. However, artistic expression needs an obstacle, beyond the corporeal, to be broken through. As an act of rebellion, duende must have a lid, a force of opposition—either from societal, religious, economic, or ideological norms—to occur.
