El Rastro


El Rastro (The Trace) is, first, a novel by Margo Glantz. Then, an obsession of Analia (Couceyro) and, as the theater is viral, that obsession was finally mine.
Together we will shape this twilight melodrama called El Rastro.
The bolero, certain pieces of Bach and some tangos are the text and the music of this unique novel.
And they all embody the heart.
El Rastro is a scenic melodrama for one voice, a joyful description of the effects of music on the soul and the body.
El Rastro is an inquiry into what we call heart, is a farewell, a requiem for a single voice, a desperate bolero, a tango.
So, here is El Rastro.
Alejandro Tantanian.
