Language Games

Absurdist take on philosophy and language. A present-day student and activist, Sheela joins Ludwig Wittgenstein, Paul Shepard and Walter Benjamin for a spirited game of mahjong. As they play, her energy conjures Joseph Beuys as a mythological hare. Invisible to the players, he interjects cultural incantations, while the players contemplate how language evolved from naming animals to representing them with signs, and how myths serve the human need to imagine. Physical chair-play creates an escalating rhythm as tensions build… As the chair-e-ography builds to a crescendo, Sheela pushes back against male aggression and wins the game.www.peculiarworks.org/languagegameswww.facebook.com/peculiarworks Watch Trailer

Magallanes.0

From 1519 to 1522 Fernando de Magallanes set off to circumnavigate the globe. Magallanes succumbed to a poisoned arrow, but his expedition was successful. This historical science-fiction play explores the first round-the-world voyage and Ferdinand Magallan’s relationship with church, state, his co-explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, and indigenous people from five continents. During a 500-year confinement, Magellan strikes up dialogues with Shakespeare, stars and stones in his efforts to stay sane. He time-travels from evolution to globalisation, forcing us to ask ourselves exactly what the first circumnavigation of the earth has brought to us, five hundred years later.www.tshock.orgwww.facebook.com/tshockemocionalwww.instagram.com/tshockculturaemocional/ Watch Trailer

Mar de fons (Deep Sea)

In 1936 Spanish Republican troops disembarked on the shores of Majorca to recover the island, which had been taken over by the military. The operation was a failure, and soon the Republicans were defeated in retreat, leaving many comrades behind on the ground. Survivors were made an example of, tortured, and executed. Mar de fons explores the consequences of these events and the following repression, and how it has affected Majorcan society. Documentary theatre based on real testimonials of people involved in the Spanish Civil War and the repression that followed. The Trial of God, Moscow, 1919, and subsequent execution: the search for one’s own identity, the dynamics of power, and the methods by which we are manipulated by the state. Through dance, theatre and humour, we talk about power and the search for referents when God is dead. inclusive, intergenerational, humorous poetic, compelling, dance-theatre epic. Created by professional performers and performers of diverse abilities. directed by Vero Cendoya and Israel Solà, director of the company La Calòrica. Nominated for Spanish MAX awards for best choreography, best show and best original music.

Migrant Shakespeare

Think you know your Shakespeare? Think again! This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before – ‘trippingly on the tongue’… Migrant actors take on the Bard, reinterpreting his words in alien environments you will never have imagined before. They give his iconic characters a new life, migrating them into the roles assigned to outsiders by society. Hamlet is a meat-packer, King Lear a construction worker, Caliban a hotel cleaner, Lady Macbeth a housewife looking after children, and Shylock washes the dishes in a restaurant. This is no one Bard: Shakespeare belongs both to no-one and to everyone.www.seyyar.companywww.facebook.com/seyyarcompanywww.instagram.com/seyyarcompanywww.youtube.com/channel/UClJlJDJKbTGUEb2hxv1pf-Awww.tiktok.com/@seyyarcompanyopen.spotify.com/user/3b0cyl3st83fthn2aubq6awklsoundcloud.com/seyyar-company Watch Trailer

NOunderstanding

Performance is a metaphor and allegory of the world we live in, of interconnections, of incommunicability. We live in the era of global communication, but it has never been so difficult to be understood. We do not listen with the intention of understanding, but with the intention of answering. In empathic listening, the situation is reversed: ears are used, but also eyes and heart. What if we look for the silence within us: silence that allows us to perceive without distortions, and to truly understand the heart with our ears and eyes?www.saramarinelli.comwww.facebook.com/compagnia.freefallwww.instagram.com/freefall_dance_company Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2
