Inspiration: American dancer Beatriz Stix-Brunell.
She was born in Miami, 1993. Stix-Brunell is a First Soloist of The Royal Ballet since 2016. She grew up in New York City and began her training aged seven at the School of American Ballet. Aged 12 she joined the Paris Opéra Ballet School and on returning to New York learnt privately with Fabrice Herrault. Aged 14 she was invited by Christopher Wheeldon to join his company Morphoses; performances with Morphoses included Polyhymnia’s variation (Apollo) and roles in Wheeldon’s There Where She Loved, Fool’s Paradiseand Polyphonia. She also created roles in Commedia and a Wheeldon/Martha Wainwright collaboration.

When a dancer is doing Cambré, their body is bent from the waist and stretching backward or sideways with the head following the movement of the upper body and arms.
EN LA PIEL DE TUS ZAPATOS
ART NACO IT’S EXPONENTIAL FACTOR TO KITSCH ART
This work of art is a form of appropriation of Arte Naco. The symbol of cowboy boots belongs to a popular Mexican iconography that represents a specific social and cultural influence. In addition, it is an element that crosses the different cultures of the country. In general, the work is a discourse to Mexican tautological actions, an allegory of life and death of a very particular vision. The concept flirts with authentic popular music and kitsch “narco corrido”. In my opinion, is a chronicler of culture and a manifesto of palimpsest in that country
Esta obra de arte es una forma de apropiación del Arte Naco. El símbolo de las botas de vaquero pertenece a una iconografía mexicana popular que representa una influencia social y cultural específica. Además, es un elemento que recorre las diferentes culturas del pais. En general, el trabajo es un discurso a las acciones tautológicas mexicanas, una alegoría de vida y muerte de una visión muy particular. El concepto coquetea con la música popular auténtica y kitsch “el narco corrido”, que en mi opinión, es cronista de la cultura y un manifiesto de palimpsesto en ese país
