Description Saeta means in finnish "get thicker" and in spanish it means "arrow". In Spain it also means spontaneous complaining song in church promenade. In this piece Saeta is a dance of a lonely bullfighter. Lonely fighter, fighting with herself hides a metaphor that suggests that the best way to win is not to fight at all. It is also a fundamental condition of faith.
Other Information The piece is a part of Canelas dance trilogy of hope, faith and love.
