The lights turn on and a curtain of ropes opens on a just married couple. The bride has long and pointy breasts and wears a cream hooped skirt and a long spiral veil decorated with pearls and diamonds. The groom wears a black and white tail coat and a Mexican style sombrero with a huge brim. The young couple looks forward to sealing the marriage with a long awaited kiss, but are thwarted by the protuberances of their bizarre costumes.
The slapstick and goofy aesthetic of the characters and their clothing, mixed with the agility of the aerobatics makes “Cordes Nuptiales” a great visual act in an enchanting universe.
