Por Sal y Samba is a duet that arises discussion on spectacle, iconography and sequentiality. Spectacle is the chosen form to share the dance, a dance created to satisfy or create a particular vision of beauty. The sequentiality in time I use to create ambivalence in the time-line of 20 minutes becomes by itself a failure on creating a spectacle: the tension is dropped without climax, and the spectacle is presented not enough spectacular. Bondage Sado-Masoquistic torture exposition, including pain and pleasure engagement, is presented frontal and establishing audience as a voyeur. This constant shift creates a great contradiction in the piece. It makes audience reconsider constantly its position in the situation.
