From press release
TORONTO, September 10, 2009- Zocalo Toronto presents the world
premiere of a dynamic new multi-disciplinary stage production that
fuses traditional drama with contemporary and Latin-style partnered
dancing. Written by Zocalo Toronto’s Artistic Director Vladimir Jon
Cubrt, and co-directed by Cubrt and Taylor Graham, The Weeping Salsa
is a lyrical tragedy in two acts that tells a story about eros – love
that is passionate, physical and urgent; about power – subjugating
one’s self for the sake of the partnership; and about finding the
strength to stand alone. The Weeping Salsa previews from November 13,
opens November 15 and runs to November 29 at The Theatre Centre.
The Weeping Salsa explores the relationship of Danny and Adele
(performed by Cubrt and Donna Christo), a pair of star-crossed lovers
whose lives are inextricably tied together well after their love
affair has ended. We first meet them in dark circumstances where
Danny drugs Adele and takes her back to his apartment after having
not seen her for many years. We meet them again, eight years earlier,
during the last days of their relationship while they are having a
final impromptu rehearsal on the day of their big performance at the
Canada Salsa Congress.
Using dance to explore the timbres of their relationship, The Weeping
Salsa deals with themes of sensuality, emotional dependency, and the
delicate balance of power in relationships.
