Logroño, (EFE).- The actress and singer Silvia Marsó recites songs and poems of “brave women”, such as Santa Teresa and Rosalía, in “a journey through feminine thought throughout the centuries”, from the 16th to the 21st , with the show “La voz de su ama”, which is performed this Friday in San Millán de la Cogolla (La Rioja), the birthplace of Spanish.
This was stated by Silvia Marsó (Barcelona, 1963) to EFE on the occasion of her participation in the initiative of the Government of La Rioja “Voces de la Lengua”, in which she will give voice to songs and poems by women who left their mark on culture iberoamerican.
“All the songs and poems chosen had an objective when they were created and that is that they claimed or questioned something about society, humanity and the time,” he stressed, and “that is why they are all brave women, who have expressed problems, demands or, simply, heartbreak through his art”.
She would like those attending “La voz de su alma” to “be impregnated with the emotional imprint and thought of these women from different eras and arts”.
Also included is “a personal story of mine, which I will share for the first time in public and in which I express something very deep: empathy and understanding”, he highlighted.
A cocktail with many nuances
This staging, he continued, is “a cocktail because it has many nuances. For example, there are very young people, older people and writers from other times and countries, so everything is very rich”.
“It has taken a lot of effort to make this selection and I have selected the best poems you can find, with the intention of showing the feminine world and the courage that many of these authors had, at a time when women were second or fourth , to record their art and their way of feeling”, and that “they transformed, in some way, the world”, he has expressed.
He has stressed that it is “something very beautiful” that these poetesses and singers can be known and mix the different voices of women from the 16th to the 21st century, among which are also Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Mercedes Sosa , Rosalía de Castro, La Argentinita and Rozalén.
Marsó highlighted that “all those chosen, at some point, have changed something in their culture or have embarked on a new way of communication or expression”, even “Rosalía herself has been a pioneer in creating her own linguistic universe, which can be questionable, but that it is genuine and, moreover, successful internationally.”
He recalled that, for example, “Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz went to the university posing as a man and wrote and was an incredible intellectual in her time”, but “she had to do like Saint Teresa, enter a convent to be able to develop their intellectual capacities because a woman could not develop if it was not through religion”.
“All of them have something admirable and I’m not talking about heroines, I’m talking about women who have given a voice and who have left their voice in the world or who are leaving it in the present,” he has had an impact.
Regarding his future projects, he has indicated that he is currently touring Spain with the theater-concert show “Blues and Roots”, together with the Del Toro Blues Band, which shows the history of blues and black music by mixing scenes of theatre, cinema and poetry, such as that of Federico García Lorca.
