American Ballet Theater premieres “Like Water to Chocolate”

To what do you attribute this sound?

Note that I made my own decision. When you create a connection with work, it is because there is a part of you that recognizes the character or status. And I said, and who to rely on? And I said myself, when Tita is a victim. Tita, in the beginning, is the object of the new mother, and then she becomes the subject who makes her own judgments. And I said that yes, but now they are not like the emaciated mothers; but then I understood that she was not a mother. This system is the economic model that determines young people, it prevents them from getting the education they want, it prevents them from freely loving the relationship they live. In my time, 20 years ago, we had already left home. But there are some 30 with their parents, because they can’t pay, because they can’t have a career [estudiar]. I may be wrong, but that is the conclusion.

Like water to chocolate is that purpose?

What leads me to write a novel is that the generation in the sixties was convinced that the world would change outside, that it was one to innovate or go out like hippies to distribute flowers. that we may live in communities so that a new man emerges from them. And because of my age I had to see and suffer pain, because it did not happen as expected.

Not only that we women join the system, the model, with the best intentions, but completely leaving the space of the kitchen. The second was important. You earned neither money nor public honors there in the kitchen. We had to go out and take a step, those who said we were intelligent and we had to show that we can do the same as people. Friends, where the world is not going to change. Of course we can do it. However, we must not do the same because what progress and progress was understood in ecological destruction, that results in corruption in the quality of life, in the destruction of families, in social destruction. Real change comes from two conscious people, from struggling communities and sustainable communities that can support themselves.

Have you changed as an artist and a person in the last 30 years? Because, it seems to me, when he wrote Chocolate Water, he was already thinking like this

That is why I wrote. I wanted to tell you, listen friends, yes, many things happen in the kitchen that we did not see; Alchemy is a laboratory, we can really transform it in the kitchen.

In my novel I put three sisters. One thing he didn’t want to change, he was happy, he could get married. I wanted to express the second step that the feminist movement took in its beginnings, which is sexual liberation. The look of revolution is becoming common and he believes it will change the world. The third is Tita. Tita, from the space of the kitchen, which seemed to her a space of oppression, punishment, a place of confinement, really makes a revolution. What is Titus’ revolution? This emasculating tradition has come down to me and I will not pass it on to a new generation. Which is a transcendent act.

It was a soul. There were three positions and there was a woman who manages to change the history of the family and who does it from the kitchen. Yes, that’s what he said.
