Burlesque show in Guadalajara

I attended to a burlesque show by Araceli De Anda in Guadalajara. Being used to classical ballet, contemporary dance and modern jazz, burlesque is something very new to me. I enjoyed this show that was based on the Wizard of Oz story. It was kind of bizarre, like all burlesque shows are, but also sexy and funny.

There’s a lot to learn to appreciate and understand this art form in a deeper sense, but you don’t need much to have fun and enjoy the show.

Theatre and Dance

Back in September I took some photos of this very creative outdoor theatre and dance at the UNAM. People were walking around the green areas and fountains of the University campus, and suddenly musicians and dancers start their act among them.

They gathered the crowd to the stairs of one of the theatres and they presented three numbers there. It was an interesting art proposal and very entertaining.

I was there because I knew this was going to happen, since my girlfriend was part of the project and she invited me to witness it, as she had talked to me about it and also another friend of mine, Jose Serralde, participated as the music director.

That day I had my zoom lens in the shop for repairs, so I had to manage how to shoot dancers on stage with a 50mm fixed lens. It turned out quite well I think, and I love the sharpness of my Nikon 50mm 1.8D, but it was not easy, since I’m using an APS-C sensor, so that 50mm lens is like an 85mm lens. Getting the dancers in frame and the crowd out of it was the hard part.
