The Murguista and the Dancer



The murguista and the dancer: Political satire in a broken political system.

The murguista and the dancer represent magic, simplicity, love, calm, passion. The murguista is the outcome of post-dictatorship Uruguay. It’s a character that can get away with political commentary that no one else is brave enough to say. The painted face creates anonymity…like a superhero’s mask. The dancer represents freedom of movement, love and joy. The dancer breaks the rigidity and inspires the murguista.
