"La noche que dejaste de actuar" / "The night that you stopped acting" by Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama Work In Progress
La noche que dejaste de actuar/The night that you stopped acting, is a one woman show which both questions and affirms the reality of being a creator, an artist, and a spectator. It's a reexamination of five key pieces of my repertory as well as an investigation of the very nature of the creative process, asking: "If a work of dance is created in the here and now, what happens when the here and now changes? How do the changes of our circumstances, our lives, and our bodies, alter our approach as dancers and choreographers?" These are the questions from which the show was born.
My work reflects my experience as a Latina/European artist living in New York and comes from a deep examination of my motivations as a woman, mother and immigrant.
