“My Prince Charming” is a contemporary dance show against machismo that travels through several works for hand-held Renaissance and Baroque viola, mainly from the pieces by Luys de Narváez, Alonso Mudarra, Gaspar Sanz and Lluís de Milà. In this dance proposal for all ages, we show the most important values ​​of femininity in the past and in the present, as a denunciation of the spoofing and hypersexualization of girls and women today. Using humor as a form of criticism, we present the current values ​​in our society, as regards male and female roles, and compare them with the artistic values ​​that are present in Renaissance and Baroque music.
The show features two dancers, formed at IT Dansa, who also sign the choreography, and was released on July 9, 2017 at the Almagro Classical Theater Festival.

Synopsis

As long as a strong storm falls, a woman of the twentieth century and a seventeenth century are found through a fantastic door that connects the two periods. Surprisingly, one lives with a gorilla and the other awaits the arrival of a blue prince. Through Renaissance and Baroque music, the two women will learn to get rid of the feminine roles imposed by both societies, and to be happy in their own right.
