SOBRE EL LOMO DE LA TORTUGA (On the tortoise shell)
“The performance is based on a symmetrical exploration of Eastern and Western theatrical traditions: different ways, sometimes complementary, sometimes quite opposite, of envisaging theatre, make theatre, dream theatre. “Sobre el lomo de la Tortuga” is a show whose title recalls the Hindu myth of churning of the universeapparitions, sounds, drama are recalling a sort of chronicle of a journey which starts from the marvels (East is exotic to the West and West to the East).
But if this journey is imagined towards the Orient, at the end it’ll return to Europe again, through circuiting and winding routes – the old way of the actors always around, always on tour. And it’s during this comeback home that one meets our Harlequin, which turns out to be a really close relative of a Bharata Natyam dancer.”
