The greatest virtue of the II Festival 7 Arte en Circuito' that just ended would be the reaction of the youngest members of the public. This kindness should be extended to many of those who created the various activities or to those who helped organize the event. This is no trivial matter, especially when we consider that the future is on his side.
The public was able to see the installation 'Weavers of Dreams' by students at IES Castillo de la Yedra and a large sculpture 'Little Babel' in which all the children from the local schools participated. Notable is also the youthful talent of the performers in notable creations such as the Happening 'Un dia entre nos,' starring Marta Moreno and Alvaro DJ; or the leading models in the photographic exhibition I give you your difference II'. They are often people with disabilities, who gave this festival an inclusive nature in pursuit of a fairer, more equal society.
The organization could not be happier if we consider the high quality of many proposals. This culmination of such a high artistic level was witnessed at Raices bar-restaurant on Saturday night with the performance 'Marranos' by EX -Estaban- and Xtobal - which has been one of the most successful performative proposals among the many who have performed this artistic duo. This was possible because of the characterisation of the characters. Their faces were based on two real pigs. It was two integral masks made from two heads of meat and bone pigs that covered both protagonists' heads. A small, real piglet also joined the scene.
Because the expressions of the observers before the animal banquet, the development of the performance were as captivating in front of the lights and behind them, the spectacle was just as fascinating. There were many emotions that could be expressed, including fear, repulsion and interest as well as surprise, surprise, laughter, or all of them at once. With a packed room, all the heat of July and powerful spotlights lighting the stage, the set was complete. Two pigs grunting during lunch completed the set. After the performance, the audience closed their eyes and applauded. Then came the opportunity to taste a plate of mask with sauce.
A second, hugely successful performance was held on Sunday before the festival closed. This time it featured Ana Vilches, a local actress, with a text written by Jose Luis Rios Jorquera (also from Cazorla). A senior prostitute walked through centrally situated Vandelvira or Tentaciones cafeterias, reciting her entire life loud for anyone who was interested. There were no restrictions or circumlocutions. Straightforward in her language and her attitude, she retorted about her miserable existence while other patrons' garbage was thrown at her feet.
A great epilogue to a magnificent exhibition of living art that has not left indifferent a municipality that refuses be ignored by history. Cazorla is grateful for the new generation.
