“Our memory is actually an invention,Rosa Montero
a narrative we rewrite with each passing day.”
“Gitanilla” is one of the most captivating tales of the patios, brought to life through the graceful interplay of movement and piano music. It narrates the story of a woman who, much like a flower, possesses both beauty and the ability to endure. She leaves an indelible mark along the path, representing a wisdom and love that only “Gitanilla,” a woman living within a patio’s blessed routine, can provide.
Moments of gatherings and routines that help individuals discover happiness and progress in a world that is perceived differently within the architectural heritage of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, such as this 14th-century Mudejar patio with Nasrid influences, exuding sublime charm.
This work, honored twice at Indefest 2022 for Best Direction and Best Male Performance, immerses us in the essence of the women inhabiting Cordovan patios. Their memories, emotions, strength, perseverance, delicacy, love for nature, spirit of sharing, and life experiences are artfully portrayed. Through two intense characters, presented in a tragicomic tone, it conjures an idealized past and a plausible present. Gitanilla is a gift that unveils the door to a concealed and unfamiliar world.
Prior to the concert, we will partake in a tasting of three gastronomic essentials that shine in both Cordovan and Mexican cuisine: a refined wine from the renowned, eco-conscious Bodegas Robles, a surprising mezcal or “cooked maguey” from the Entre Compas group, and the exquisite Iberian ham hailing from the Los Pedroches region, often dubbed the “Valley of acorns,” produced by the prestigious Agroiberica de Pozoblanco brand. These elements will escort us on an immersive journey, reminiscent of traditions past, accompanied by beautiful music and the indulgence of our senses.
