JCTC | Skin Poem For a Cosy Hause by Los Escultores del Aire

September 25 @ 4:00 pm

Skin Poem For a Cosy Hause by Los Escultores del Aire / World Theatre / Catalonia – Spain 

Faced with global paralysis and uncertainty, we decided to catalyze all emotions and transform our own home into the rehearsal room. We turn captivity into an artistic residency by giving a creative spin to the situation and transforming limitation into opportunity. The show began to come to life in the living room of our house, our furniture became our decoration, our days the fieldwork for dramaturgy, and our confinement the time we longed to dedicate ourselves to creating without any distractions. Skin Poem for a Cosy House is a show full of resilience, simplicity, and Hope.

SYNOPSIS: Dance Theatre show created and performed by Mai Rojas and Raffaella Crapio. With this sixth montage, Los Escultores del Aire closes their trilogy on memory. Skin Poem for a Cosy House is a journey on the five stages of grief: denial, anger, negotiation, depression, and acceptance. A couple lives every day in their small apartment. They get up, go to work, go home tired and start over. One day he forgets to arrive on time to celebrate his birthday. The couple argues; she gets angry and frustrated by the preparations for a failed celebration. Angry, she decides to go out for some fresh air, without saying goodbye or apologizing, staying in the apartment. She never returns; while out, she suddenly dies in an accident. He must live with her memory and the pain of a sudden departure. Surrounded by common memories, his little house becomes a museum of mixed feelings, which, together with her belongings, must be put away in a box, symbolically saying goodbye.
