Pienso casa, digo silla is a continuation of our previous collaborative piece Kopfkino, where we took on the personae of female cinematic personalities to question the influence of fiction in the construction of our identities. This time we’re focusing on the experiencies of visionary women of the Middle Ages, to examine what faith means in our secularised world.
What is a visionary experience and how can it be translated into the world today? In this era of dead images, what value can be placed on imagination?
Our work revolves around the potential that faith and complete devotion have to stimulate the minds of our audience. Prophetic visions, cathartic hypnoses, anachronistic dances, songs from beyond… We take a look at the past to recover something we seem to have lost in this posthumous time of the present.
Los Detectives are a company based in Barcelona and consisting of Mariona Naudin, María García Vera and Marina Colomina (with the collaboration of Laia Cabrera and Sofía Asencio). Resident artists at Graner, La Calder and Antic Teatre, their work revolves around the female body and its cultural significance. The result is an unusual kind of theatrical choreography or choreographed theatre that exhudes humour.
