Un Monstruo y La Chúcara
The play is about the journey of a man in his attempts to stand and that of a woman who is standing, but doesn’t know how to walk.
Each one of them is submitted to a ritual of automatic gestures, wandering in an attempt to build an identity. Attempts that do not reach an aim, but fade, break and merge into others.
Memory pieces, residues of a rambling speech, inform its universe.
Like in a jigsaw puzzle, they try to reconcile their movements with time and space; moving among fractured memories, without names or periods, memories made of shapeless material. It is in that endeavour, that these two beings meet, in an unexpected pas de deux.
