Sumptuous 19th century costumes and stark lighting contrast in Javier de Frutos’ stunningly theatrical piece. Dressed in beautiful 19th Century inspired ball gowns, three women dance accompanied by ancient Chinese drumming. Their movements are graceful and elegant, challenging the passionate, tribal essence of the drums.
Dominated by a single man, they merge together creating a moving image of tormented souls. At times pure and at others lurid and sexual, Sour Milk takes on many contradictions and culminates in a powerful and moving climax.
