In “LIGHT” there is a reflection on the theatrical activity, the theatrical space, the theatre audience and life, with light as an inspiring reason. The creation device that the stage configures is dissected in its relationship with light and the audience, in a poetic movement around multiple aspects such as colour, intensity, creation, shadow, shine, illumination, reflection, dispersion or love.
Different views of light – scientific, philosophical, empirical, poetic, esoteric – are at the origin of this “LIGHT” that we now share, past the filters of our creative imaginations. It is a multiple look on light, from many eyes, brains, sensibilities and experiences, which will be joined in the performances by the multiple eyes of the audience, to whom we invite:
Think about light.
Think about your relationship with light.
Think about the relationship of others with light.
Think about the relationship between everything that exists with light.
Imagine many single experiences of light.
Imagine many imaginations of light.
Imagine seven performers.
Imagine a theatre hall.
Imagine the downstage as a slit.
Imagine the theatre stage as a translucent triangular prism.
Imagine the light passing through it.
Come and SEE.
