Judges

David Alejandro Palo

  • Exactly one year ago, after 4 years of learning the Balinese culture, the idea of this show came to my mind like a revelation.
  • I had found the technical and argumental reason to fusion my native dance, Tango Argentino, with Balinese Topeng Dance. The first impression is that it was a crazy idea. How could two native dances, so distant one of each other could be related in a single scene?  Luckily, I’ve had the impulse of enthusiastic people with a amazing  artistic soul that, without  them, would have been impossible.
  • This show is divided in two acts, each one of them showing outstanding tango dance exhibitions, group choreographies and fusion dances. Topeng Keras, wich is part of the show, was the foundational stone of the show. Premiered in January of 2018, represents the eternal balance of the relationships. Keras (hard, rigid) and Manis (soft, flexible).
  • Topeng Tua, represents the connection with the gods.  and how the spiritual strength, trough prayers, can make the wishes come true. Always in pursuit of “taksu”, which is a Balinese concept meaning a spiritual power and artistic inspiration to capture Minds and hearts of the audience, both human and divine.
