“I have heard
That guilty creatures sitting at a play
Have by the very cunning of the scene
Been struck so to the soul that presently
They have proclaim’d their malefactions”
Hamlet, W. Shakespeare (Act II, scene 2)
My theatrical approach is driven by the preoccupation of creating a theatrical language that is capable of “provoking a strong affective and intellectual reaction (…) even if such reactions might bring forth discomfort or pain”.
The visceral characteristics of the theatre I do is defined by a determinist and violent vision which resembles that of Renaissance’s, that of the Theatre of cruelty, or Sarah Kane’s who would say that “the actor and the audience dive into hell in their imagination so that they might not go there in real life”.
This theatrical legacy, together with my personal experience, have drawn my conviction that actions and extreme situations on stage can provoke a revelation or a change in the spectator’s eye and stand for political statements.
