“Oh, one more thing! This is the back entrance to The City (or an access from above, descending in freefall through a skylight). These are versions of a place seen, or heard, and then (re)constructed in pieces; a vague memory, an image. The City is everything that goes through the head of the person thinking it… in fits and starts. The City, therefore, is always, always, subjective, quite often subsidiary and, with luck, common to all.”

La Ciudad brings together nine spectators and one performer seated around a surface that could be identified as a table, but that soon becomes a screen; a common space for receiving, emitting and exchanging information. La Ciudad provides an intimate environment, thanks to a reduced audience and the theatrical setting, from which to converse with the city outside, whether real or invented (it makes no difference). Always from a subjective point of view and without aiming to generalise, we look at all the things the narrator and performer finds of interest: traces, details, prints… Everything that goes unnoticed, everything that is residual or secondary, everything that, on the face of it, holds no interest; everything that merits soft lighting and a subdued tone of voice.

Verónica Navas Ramírez (Barcelona 1986): moving in the direction of live arts carrying audiovisuals, writing and comics in her backpack. Focusing on documentaries, site-specific, field recordings, cityscapes, words, the status of the spectator, gender. From a perspective that is subjective; traces, details, accessories, prints, intimacies.

Off the stage I’m active in theatrical communications, audiovisual scripts and collective processes of artistic accompaniment and learning in educational environments. On social networks I’m @dichodepaso.
