Beschreibung

"...in a "Meet the Artist" session at the Purcell Room on Monday, Javier de Frutos was citing vulnerability as the reason for doing what he does: dance in the nude. Don't get me wrong: this is no shadowy, arty, semi-disclosed nudity. It's a man without his clothes on. Full frontal, point blank. For the first five minutes of his latest work, Transatlantic, an oblique account of his early experiences in America, Frutos plods in a circle with bottom protruding and dysfunctional flat feet. What we hear is the brassy overture to Styne and Sondheim's musical Gypsy, "Yes, Everything's Coming Up Roses . . . " Think irony, think Gay icons, think, this man is getting something out of his system but what can it possibly mean to me? There is humour - even slapstick - when Frutos bends over and moons during a silly song about a cow talking. But most of his contortions draw a blank. What rang most true was Ethel Merman belting out "You Gotta Get a Gimmick (If you Want to Get Ahead)". Enough said." (Quelle: The Independent, 27.10.1996, Jenny Gilbert).
