Izaskun Fernández and Julián Sáenz- López, creators of El Patio Teatro, handle themes from the agricultural world and small cities with documentary rigor, care and a skillful and meticulous scenic show of discovered objects, into which they breathe poetic breath. Fairshis first co-production with the National Dramatic Center, maintains the tone, fashion and intimate vigor of his earlier exhibits, however takes on considerably better scenic reduction by having extra sources at his disposal: this evocative, joyful and didactic fable doesn’t stop to be be an exquisite miniature, however the presence of three performers on stage, as an alternative of the hitherto typical duo or bululú (a single actor), opens the vary of stage play to a wider variety of variations.

An empty theater or a ruined one are the identical factor. When there may be nothing, the stage field doesn’t make any sense. With 4 objects and a few chairs, we have already got one thing. We had promised that we’d speak once more about Lluïsa Cunillé and Albert Arribas, who repeat on the Barcelona billboard with On the opposite! now within the Atrium Room. Another oddity, like The canine, which brings collectively one in every of our greatest playwrights with probably the most rigorous director in Catalonia. The two performers deserve all of the reward: Antònia Jaume, extraordinary actress and a daily within the Arribas universe, and Berta Giraut—actress, poet and creator—who enters this cosmos like a meteorite. These individuals had been born to seek out themselves on this setup. Strange individuals, with persona and a perspective. Extraterrestrial performers in our boring scenic panorama.
