Cotillion

 

a ballroom dance of French origin, similar to the contredanse. Known since the 18th century, the cotillion became particularly popular in mid-19th-century Europe, including Russia. It combined several dances (waltz, mazurka, and polka) and was performed by all participants at the end of the ball. The variety of the dance depended on the leading couple: the male dancer signaled the orchestra, called out the figures, and coordinated the movements of the other dancers.

En este juego de aparentes oposiciones entronca la produccion de esta poeta, y a partir de los enunciados de Masiello, desde una lectura de los procesos culturales en estas decadas postdictatoriales, podemos agrupar la obra de Yasan, dividiendola en tres grupos: los dos primeros poemarios, Doble de alma (1995) y Cambiar las armas (1997) dialogan con la historia nacional y las residuas del proceso militar; el poemario Loba Negra (1998) es una reflexion sobre la mujer y la condicion femenina , mientras que los dos ultimos poemarios, Cotillon para desesperados (2001) y Traccion a sangre (2004) (4), exploran y dialogan con las urbes postmodernas, con los imaginarios urbanos de los noventa.
