Rosalia performed a high profile minimalist show at Irving

0

On Friday night, Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalia lit up the Toyota Music Factory pavilion at the Irving stop of her Motomami World Tour, her first major tour supporting her album of the same name.

Rosalia gave North Texas fans a sleek and elegant performance, using a white canvas, her backup dancers, and cleverly used handheld cameras to immerse the audience in her vision. Instead of an opening act, sketches appeared on the canvas piece by piece before the show, drawing cheers from the crowd every time it changed.

The minimalist set design also served as a blank canvas for Rosalia’s eclectic influences as an artist, giving her pop, folk and reggaeton sensibilities an equal chance to fill the space. Disabled songs Motomami in particular, were creatively aligned with the album’s motorcycle motif. She wore black leather for most of her set and at one point even rode a makeshift “bicycle” made up of her own dancers.

The steadicam operator, who was directly beside her for most of the show, was an integral part of the show, often blocking her entirely from the audience’s view, forcing you to experience the show through selfie-esque projections of either side of the stage. Ironically, and perhaps intentionally, the back row had the best seats in the house.
