Thank you, ainvar12 for posting!
Holy Thursday. Midnight. The loyalty is notable. Not uselessly, from ends of the medieval epoch continues taking place a tradition of differentiated singularity, a significance that makes her more special, if it fits. Not only in the streets the most intense devotion is heaped. Also in the balconies, some of them probably a bit more saturated that of custom. Some spectators are afraid of a collapse, which would meet to the fret on his more felt expectations. The punctuality is the dominant note. Instants after the handles mark the twelve in the tower of the parochial church it is invoked to the silence and the looks converge towards the same point. The whole series of actors and bit-part actors give life to a very elegant staging. Twelve apostles, continuing an established order initiate a tour that has been illuminated following the guideline of a last time, though improved with the new technologies. Little later, a Roman detachment safeguards one of the protagonists of this event, which drags the cross that determines the history for which there meet they they all, attendees and actors, in these dates. Likewise, hoods that do not hide the age of the participants and confraternities with his perfectly exquisite heights for the event. It is Christ's Passion. Nevertheless, ten prominent figures are included between the bit-part actors causing, simultaneously, dread and unusual interest. Two groups of five that, in fact, are the persons in charge of the gained well reputation of this celebration in this population of the north of Catalonia. Five of these officiants dance to the pace of a drum. Verges (Baix Empordà) is renamed by your "Dance of death". Only in the whole Europe, explicit the reality with what everything the mortal one lives along his existence, without importing condition or level. A metaphorical, symbolic dance. With monotonous sound, of mechanical coldness. Of slow evolution, his movements are opposite to the direction of the needles of the clock. Of inappealable visual transcendency, a message in the scythe like that it defines: " nemeni parco " (none escapes). And the words of the banner that they hoist it complements: " the time is brief ". It is the demonstration more incredible of the most trustworthy popular theatre in the current Spain.
