‘En Calzones’ is the 2nd chapter of the series named ‘Reminiscente’. After the solo ‘A Colossus’, the duet ‘En Calzones’ was born in a residency at CLOUD/danslab in The Hague, The Netherlands.
This duet is performed by Arturo Vargas and Fernando Troya, and assisted by Quentin Roger. The music is composed and played live by composer Marko Ivic.
For this chapter the main sources of inspiration are: 1) the series of prints ‘Disasters of War’ and ‘Caprichos’ by painter Francisco de Goya, but also some of his earlier paintings, with scenes of countryside and popular characters; 2) The Allegory of the Cave by philosopher Plato is metaphorically still very present in this second chapter.
