About the show:
El Llac de les Mosques premiered at the prestigious cultural centre Mercat de les Flors, Centro Parraga in March 2009. Under the pretext that she is returning into the past, Sol Picó constructs her performance as if a rock & roll concert, with a bit of the aesthetics from the 80-ties, at a time that she could have been a singer. In this dynamic show, Sol uses all of her usual and recognizable tools: unique sense of humor, live music, and as usual the audience plays an integral part in the show as she engages in communication with them. El Llac de las Mosques deals with gender issues, sexuality, all this accompanied by the rhythm of rock & roll, a bit of flamenco and then the sound of blues… The performance is a result of catharsis; a quest for evolution…Choreographer and Sol Picó is accompanied by exceptional musicians and dancers.
