“The scabby sequin drapery stinks of sweat and disinfectants. Notes of music spread through the poorly ventilated shadows before dissolving in the bottom of the glasses. Under the spotlights spilling night blue, the decimated choir of operetta singers rehearses a rudimentary choreography. Indolence of dressing gowns, sweat-shirts and mended leggings, adorned with plucked boas, glossy trinkets and feedback from the microphone. Rigid flesh concealing such desire, nude gazes that know of so much decline. The grimace of death hidden under cheap make-up. The real story, where the frivolous genre becomes tragic, is written with lipstick on the dressing room mirror, surrounded by burnt out light bulbs.”   Eusebio Calonge
