From press release

TORONTO, September 10, 2009- Zocalo Toronto presents the world

premiere of a dynamic new multi-disciplinary stage production that

fuses traditional drama with contemporary and Latin-style partnered

dancing. Written by Zocalo Toronto’s Artistic Director Vladimir Jon

Cubrt, and co-directed by Cubrt and Taylor Graham, The Weeping Salsa

is a lyrical tragedy in two acts that tells a story about eros – love

that is passionate, physical and urgent; about power – subjugating

one’s self for the sake of the partnership; and about finding the

strength to stand alone. The Weeping Salsa previews from November 13,

opens November 15 and runs to November 29 at The Theatre Centre.

The Weeping Salsa explores the relationship of Danny and Adele

(performed by Cubrt and Donna Christo), a pair of star-crossed lovers

whose lives are inextricably tied together well after their love

affair has ended. We first meet them in dark circumstances where

Danny drugs Adele and takes her back to his apartment after having

not seen her for many years. We meet them again, eight years earlier,

during the last days of their relationship while they are having a

final impromptu rehearsal on the day of their big performance at the

Canada Salsa Congress.

Using dance to explore the timbres of their relationship, The Weeping

Salsa deals with themes of sensuality, emotional dependency, and the

delicate balance of power in relationships.
