Barroco. Oh, and a poll.

I am completely and totally fascinated. We went to see the latest theatre piece tonight. It was Barok (Barroco), directed by one of certainly the best directors of the past century Tomaž Pandur (check his website here). Barroco is a wonderful production, done by Teatro Fernan-Gomez/Centro Cultural de la villa de Madrid, Pandur only directed it. It's a performance based on a 1782 Choderlos de Laclos' novel Dangerous Liaisons and - in my eyes at least - it's a masterpiece. I can't really remember the last time I had to fight with my tears as often as tonight. And I think that at least Xavi - gorkabear might recognise some of the names. Stars of the performance were (Almodovar's latest muse) Blanca Portillo, (they say spanish rock star) Asier Etxeandia and Chema Leon.

Fascinating!

(L) Chema Leon: "All the world is changing."
(R) B
lanca Portillo: "My skin still remembers you."

240 240
(L) Blanca Portillo: "When woman wants to hurt another woman, she hardly ever misses. And wounds are always fatal."
(R) Asier Etxeandia: "I could easily get used to being a woman." Blanca Portillo: "I wish I could say the same."


Oh, since I needed to wear something else than a t-shirt....

Here's a "Bijou Poll" - Should I keep on wearing this pearl (Igor brought me)?

Man, I haven't been to a theatre in a long time. I miss seeing plays.


Btw, that shirt looks really good to me. Not faggy at all. :o)

We go when we see something that really gets out attention. "Barocco" did it and it surely made a HUGE impact on me. :)

I'd wear the pearl for the sentiment. But really it is about you. Do you like it? How does it feel on you? The look often takes on the vibe of the owner and you are serious hotness so to wear or not to wear is about what you want.

cheers

Blanca Portillo is famous here because she was the main character of a TV sitcom, besides having worked with Almodóvar (in "Volver" she outdoes Stupid-Ican'tspeakproperly-Penelope Cruz)

I didn't know about the play. But again, they're from Madrid.

Did they speak in Slovenian?

Well... I checked their webpage, they're not coming to Barcelona. Valencia seems to be the nearest.

They spoke in spanish and we got the subtitles.

It was GREAT :)

So fascinating... from what I have read, barocco originally referred to a pearl... and so, you wore a pearl to the play whose title denoted however distantly a pearl... a pearl beyond all price as used to be said...
