Malasangre
COMPANY PREMIERE 
Cayetano Soto
La Lupe
13 minutes
Theaterhaus Stuttgart, 2013

In my work, I feel drawn toward the seekers, people and artists who do not fit into our concepts – just like La Lupe, the Queen of Latin Soul. To be sure, it is not La Lupe that I associate with Malasangre, the Spanish word for a vicious or bad temper. It is the wholesale, thoughtless rejection with which she was constantly met, largely due to the puritanical standards of the early sixties. Though her wild life ended in extreme poverty in 1992, her music is here to stay.

Press Reviews
"...especially infectious..."
THE DANCE JOURNAL

"[Soto] walks the delicate line between appropriation and inspiration, between creating pastiche and paying homage, with maturity and perfection, ignoring the temptation to fill the stage with theatricalized, ballet-ified salsa and instead creating a throbbing movement vocabulary that fuses Fosse with the occasional flamenco-esque port de bras."
