the night that you stopped acting/la noche due dejaste de actuar

La noche que dejaste de actuar/The night that you stopped acting, is a one woman show in which Anabella Lenzu both questions and affirms the reality of being a creator, an artist, and a spectator. It's a reexamination of five key pieces of her repertory as well as an investigation of the very nature of the creative process, asking: "If a work of dance is created in the here and now, what happens when the here and now changes? How do the changes of our circumstances, our lives, and our bodies, alter our approach as dancers and choreographers?" These are the questions from which the show was born.
