The copla - cabaret

The copla - cabaret




Theatre play
Author: Alejandro Postigo
Director: Andrea Jiménez
Cast: Alejandro Postigo, Piano: Rob Scoynes
Subversive drag artist La Gitana shares her passion for Spanish copla and reveals secrets of cultural and sexual identity, being and belonging and building bridges for survival.


Through live music and audience participation, La Gitana summons the longing, memories and sighs of all those who left their homelands and now live in-between. She hosts a provocative night of copla, a genre of music illicitly appropriated by Franco’s dictatorship and ultimately lost into history… until now.
