OUR NYC DEBUT!
Oct. 5th & 6th, 2012 at the Bronx Academy of Art and Dance-Blaktinx Festival.
We’ll be presenting our critically acclaimed full evening work, “Slumber of Reason/El Sueno de la Razon”.
Rated in top 10 of Dallas dance performances of 2011 by TheaterJones.com
“Inspired by Francisco de Goya’s 80 prints “Los Caprichos”, Latina Dance Theater Project captured the grotesquerie and folly of Goya’s works…it was so highly polished and sophisticated in its use of projected images, fanciful costumes and arresting movement that we could forgive the fact that even torture was treated with droll humor.”
The creative springboard for this work is Spanish painter Francisco de Goya’s prints, “Los Caprichos.”
With stark intensity unprecedented in the history of art, these prints convey the contradictions of a historical period when religious fundamentalism and paranoia prevailed over reason.
