Caminata y Sensata


In this piece Barragán explores everyday life in big cities, in this case México City. The busyness of the days and then the private and community life in the barrios at night inspire the scenes that make up Caminata y Sensata. Caminata is the day section and it reflects the squizofrenic aspect of the city through movement, and Sensata, using bright green kid's chairs plays with images of nightlife and solitude. This piece was created with the Universidad de las Américas -Puebla dance students later fuuly developed with the 2004 cast in Seattle. Music by Terry Bozio and Tonatiu Avila (student of the same University) “support the tone of the piece which is latino and very amusing.

Estrellata will soon complete a trilogy with these two pieces. (2006?)
