“Princesses” is a medium format theatrical work (45 min). It develops a unique scenic language based on the visual impact and in which different artistic disciplines come together.
It is composed of 4 acts:
- act 1: introduction
- act 2: the waiting
- act 3 : the decision
- act 4: the scape
It is narrated in a visual way where words are supplanted by the symbolic, corporal and sonorous language. The scenes are fragments from a women’slife, in which elements that are part of traditional stories are used: the transmission of society’s rules of conduct and morality.
“Princesses” seeks to contrast that world of “ Fairy tales” through a dark proposal, delirious, decadent that is closer to a suffered living reality.
This play tells the story of a woman who’s permanently looking for something. She’s waiting for the predictions of fairy tales to be fulfilled: the arrival of her prince. She craves to be saved from reality, which unfolds between desire and frustration. When discovering, that the fantasy that was built during her childhood, will not materialize, delirium and solitude take possession of her history.
This work was born from a process of reflection on the stories of women, on learning and the conditioning of our childhood, where the criticism towards traditional stories are the protagonists. Since these provide education in values and narrate the social and moral norms according to each culture. In fact, we have grown up with characters who have told us what is good and where they have taught us that happiness begins when we meet the supposed average soul. But we were not warned that these narratives could also sow frustrations and great existential vacuums.
Our company raises the need to make visible, through a sordid and questioning proposal, that these beliefs are apprehensions that do not allow us to live freely. We want to transmit sensations to the viewer, through visual scenes, sound design and projections. Each will draw their own conclusions.
