Some 200 inmates of the prison of Salto del Negro, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, have enjoyed this Friday the music, humor and theater of the company Ron Lalá, that this weekend comes to Cuyás Theater with his show Crime and curtain.
The activity, which is part of the set of socio-cultural projects promoted by this campus of the Cabildo Gran Canaria to bring culture and theater to disadvantaged sectors, has been a shock to the inmates, who spent more than an hour enjoying the best numbers of the training directed by Yayo Cáceres.
At the popular request, the formation was also encouraged to perform songs by Joaquín Sabina Y Joan Manuel Serrat that were choreographed and applauded by an audience as exceptional as delivered.
The inmates also had the opportunity to hold a conversation with Cáceres himself and with four of his musicians, Ínigo Echevarría, Daniel Rovalher, Miguel Magdalena Y Fran García, who were finally interviewed in the radio station with which the penitentiary center counts.
During your visit to Salto del Negro, Ron Lalá he explained that Crime and curtain, the assembly that until this Saturday stars in the Cuyás Theater and that some inmates will have the chance to see live when they are already enjoying the third grade, parody the precarious situation of the art and culture of our time, while paying homage to the performing arts with a tour through various eras, nations and styles.
The work is set in the near future in which the arts are prohibited and our planet, turned into Earth City, is governed by an artificial intelligence with an army of drones.
Its atmosphere is that of a thriller of the black genre, with multiple cinematographic and literary references (Poe, Conan Doyle, Chandler, Christie€), and the scenes follow one another like pieces of an enigmatic puzzle to solve, before spectators who are simultaneously witnesses and suspects, the greatest magnicide of history: the death of the theater.
All this leads to a labyrinth of intrigues and laughter served by the five actors-musicians that make up the company, Ínigo Echevarría, Daniel Rovalher, Juan Cañas, Miguel Magdalena Y Álvaro Tato, to those who, guided by Yayo Cáceres, they join in this tour Jacinto Bobo Y Fran García.
The last tickets to enjoy this great show, Friday and Saturday at 8.30 pm at the Cuyás Theater, where it has the sponsorship of the Global transport company, are on sale, from 12 euros (more discounts), in the box office and the website of the enclosure: www.teatrocuyas.com.
