Las Tablas’ Artists
* Texts by Juan José Gil
Our founders and very soul
Marisol shows us that dance has no borders, that the times have changed, as the lyrics sing: “the times have changed, as have I…” Marisol’s stage presence is uniquely elegant, she acts with tremendous responsibility when she stands before the audience, always in a happy dress, with bright colors, so that she is ready for the alegrías, which she dances like none other.
If you’ve never seen her you should, because I’m sure her dance is a sight you’ll never forget. The venue in those moments is flooded with the salty air of Cádiz and that breeze from La Caleta …
“Wearing black mantillas, she thinks the world is tiny and the heart immense…” That’s how Antonia dances, with an immense heart.
As she told me one day, in a previous life she was a runaway horse that experimented with everything, and now she’s getting back to her roots, this is where she wants to stay, because this is what she needs. That’s Antonia, a wild horse getting in touch with her roots. In her tientos, she cuts an elegant figure that slips by slowly, closing with tangos and stylistic loveliness on the stage.
