Produced by Deborah Lawlor and under the artistic direction of guitarist Ethan Margolis, To Paint a Woman is an all-male flamenco performance inspired by a Spanish fandango verse “Por Pintar A Una Mujer” about the idealization of women.
Por pintar a una mujer
A un loco le dio la manía
Por pintar a una mujer
Y cuando pintá la tenía
Le puso un letrero a los pies
“Ya me tienes como tú querías”
                *
To paint a woman
A crazy man was given the notion
To paint a woman
And once he had the painting finished,
He placed a sign at her feet…
“Now you have me as you have always wanted”
Luis de la Tota
