Description

Sadonna is exactly what it sounds like: sad versions of Madonna songs. In the form of a cabaret concert conceived as a poignant homage to the pop icon, Miguel Gutierrez reinterprets Madonna’s big successes in a melancholic way, accompanied on stage by the Slutinos, the Sad Latino Boys Backup Singers. In this music project, choreographer Miguel Gutierrez shows just how tiny the spiritual distance is between the international pop superstar, who grew up in Bay City, Michigan and himself, an international experimental itinerant artist who grew up in Colonia, New Jersey. Performed with reverence and delicateness, Sadonnaekes out the melancholy cry for help hidden within Madonna’s uplifting lyrics.
