Course description

We have slightly somewhat stolen the title from the artist David Fernández, who untitled one of his plays with the magnificent Aquí iría el jodido título de la obra (This is where the damn title of the play should go). Therefore, this workshop without a title is born with the idea of taking a closer look at everything that captivates us to jump into the playing field with a parachute woven from references of all kinds.

Based on playing as the central element in the performance, it will be a case of, initially, delving into the cinematographic genres that move us: terror, romcom and sci-fi, among others. We want the constructing of stereotypes to be a first step from which we will begin a process of deconstruction that enables us to enter into contact with devices typical of the contemporary theatre scene: dissociating, abstracting, composing plastically, constructing atmospheres, establishing new game rules and then immediately blowing them up. And questioning, lots of questioning.

In this sense, we propose to journey into a process of experimentation of the limits between the tasks of acting and those that belong to the role of performer. Allowing the mask of the character to fall so that our own appears, thus summoning the creative facet of each one of us.

Within the GREC 2022 Festival of Barcelona.
