POVERA | CENA.CENOURA (2015)
During the seven acts and the epilogue the audience attends to the meticulous celebration of a meal: setting, starters, first course, second course, dessert and coffee/sherries.
Here, the architecture becomes starting point, generating actions, events. The dramatic text is born after the construction (not the set-design after the play has benn written, as ususal) and it's inspired by both the human actions and the possibilities of the space.
And Time which measures everything.

It is important to explain the experimental character of this piece.
The audience doesn’t expect the piece to happen.
It’s part of the process to catch people’s attention and make them be part of the piece.
The movements and the relation with the audience will change every day. Trial and error. Some things will be kept if they work, others will be deleted.
One act per day and in every act, all of them.
