Dance of the Odd Couple / La Danza de la Pareja Dispareja

Circus “Oz”, Poliedro de Caracas, Festival Internacional de Teatro, Venezuela (April 1992)

Había una vez una chica que tenía unos brazos larguísimos y un señor con unas piernas elongadas. Venciendo todos los pronósticos, los dos se enamoraron perdidamente. Como suele ocurrir con las parejas enamoradas, ellos quisieron bailar. Después de todo, la vida no es otra cosa sino una danza interminable!  Pero cada vez que intentaban bailar, fallaban terriblemente. Con unos brazos tan largos es imposible ceñir a un gigante de piernas inacabables. Hasta que un día, estos dos encontraron la manera de alcanzarse y entonces, bailaron jubilosamente, por horas y horas. Ahí fue cuando tomé la foto*


This is the story of a woman who had very long arms and a guy who had very long legs. Against all odds, they fell in love. As it happens with most couples in love, they wanted to dance. After all, what is life but an endless dance!  But every time they tried, they failed, miserably.  See, it is hard to get your long arms around a guy who has long legs… Until one day, these two found a way to reach to each other and they danced joyfully, indeed, for hours on end. That is when I took the snapshot*
