La Rosa del Penal

Flamenco Show

Premiere: Novembre 2013
Running time: 55 min

A choreography by Saška Šašić La Sali & Anja Mejač


While the prisoner decays alone behind the prison bars, outside on the freedom a bud developing in a rose. When the prisoner notices the rose, he becomes obsessed with her beauty and innocence and falls deeply in love with her.


Watching her through the window becomes his piece of happiness and the thought of connecting with her his deepest desire. But the happiness doesn’t last –the prisoner realizes that also the rose is getting older and is suffering while loosing her beauty. So, rather than trying to set himself free to unite with his love, he decide to keep her in his heart as a sweet memory. The show was created as an interpretation of the song of Antonia Molina with the same title.
