Trailer for TORO: Beauty and the Bull, choreographed by Carlos Pons Guerra for DeNada Dance Theatre.
DeNada Dance Theatre presents Spanish choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra’s TORO, a new, gender questioning, Hispanic take on the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, boldly dealing with the eroticism of the story.
Set in a circus sideshow of a dystopian South America, in a heady world of conquistadors, female bulls, virgin lands and animals in drag, TORO is a darkly comic and melodramatic tragedy about the monsters men create through power, fear and oppression.
