An atmosphere of sensuality and eroticism enveloped the ambience of the majestic Angela Peralta Theater with the revival of “Anatomy of Love”, a piece that the attendees who gathered under the new normality after the effects of the pandemic generated by Covid-19 liked.
This piece is a stage investigation of the poem “Muerte sin fin”, by José Gorostiza, a concept created and directed by choreographer Víctor Manuel Ruiz, with scenography by Fernando Feres, where the dancer Nashieli Buelna takes over the stage with her flamenco movements loaded with eroticism and passion that in the end were liked by the respectable public.
From a dialogue came an atmosphere of a ritual nature in which the dancer displayed the passion for flamenco that was transmuted by the conceptual and abstract light of contemporary dance into a kind of coven.
The glass, the falling water, the fire, the “long ribbons of surprises” and other elements of Gorostiza’s greatest creation were transferred to a pagan choreography.
Along with the undoubted histrionic power of Buelna, Johnny Millán’s costume design sharpened the theatrical character of “Anatomy of Love” that seemed to move through small and intense scenes in which power, sex, vulnerability, mystery, the sacred and the mundane were united, leaving the public stunned and fascinated.
This sample was part of the first week of activities of the Festival Cultural Mazatlán 2020, an activity with which the artists return to the stage with an audience after several months.
The Instituto Municipal de Cultura, Turismo y Arte de Mazatlán, directed by José Ángel Tostado Quevedo, invites society to participate in the different events of the season, which concludes at the end of December.
