¡Hay Teatro!
Latina Dance Project presents
based on Francisco de Goya’s “Los Caprichos”

Fri Nov 10    Doors open at 6:30 pm / show at 7 pm
Sliding scale $10, $20, $30
Enigmatic and controversial, Los Caprichos were created in a time of economic crisis and social unrest in Spain. The series of prints deals with such themes as the Spanish Inquisition, the corruption of the nobility, witchcraft, and avarice. Its subhuman cast includes characters that populate a world on the margins of reason, where no clear boundaries distinguish reality from fantasy.  With a 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. The Latina Dance Project uses these powerful images to create a physical theater work exploring how they are still pertinent today! Like Goya they use humor and satire to explore contemporary demons like immigration (Inquisition), racism (corruption of the nobility), technological alienation (fantasy, social avarice, subhuman cast) and WAR!  LDP uses haunting video, movement and text (spoken and sung) to bring to life Goya’s biting social critique and his revulsion towards ignorance, fear and intellectual oppression.
