2 VANITY Original idea and direction: Victor Ruíz Duration: 40 minutes Target audience: Adults VANITY is a dramatic composition addresses the excesses crudely, banality and marketing of the body. The passages of the piece focus on the image of beauty, physical attractiveness, drugs, alcohol, domestic violence and the deep solitude That Prevails in our society. The world insist in the transformation of the physical to hide Everything That Makes an Individual "natural" Replacing the biological by the synthetic, at a frantic effort to get away from the Consequences Caused by age. We Appear to live in the promise obsessive That Promotes the media every day to meet the fleeting happiness of the false. "The devastating scenography created by Fernando Feres, bristles senses... The public Could Ruiz's appreciate how monumental imagination overflowed the Angela Peralta Theater, creating moments of impact and thrill with a stark and hard work..." Digital Magazine / December 2014 Political Critic
