Creation, direction, execution and production: Los Torreznos (Jaime Vallaure and Rafael Lamata).


What the various artistic vanguards of the 20th century do about the relation between art and life is to analyse, confront, question, and intervene the axioms that define society’s “reality” at any given moment. The concept of Art and Life leads to working on the realities of daily existence…

In this instance, the piece plays with the situation on stage. It analyses where we are, spectators and actors alike, and what it is we see. To what we pay attention, what has value, and why.

Through different actions the game is unravelled, at times subjectively, at times objectively. Various factors come together to condition our understanding of what is there… and what we can do with it.

How can we, amicably, manipulate our perception of reality?

Los Torreznos (Jaime Vallaure y Rafael Lamata) are a duo who work in the field of performance arts from a conceptual perspective, using a minimum of props, focusing primarily on their physical presence, bodies and text.

Their work is humorous because they show up the absurdities of human behaviour accepted as normal. It lies somewhere between what’s known as “action art” and “performance art”.

Los Torreznos search for and experiment with expression using simple forms such as gesture, language and presence. Forms that are, in the first place, accessible to anyone, not just to specialists in the languages of contemporary art.

They have shown their work at numerous festivals in Spain (Escena contemporánea, Mapa, Inpresentable, QUAM, Pan, Contenedores, Mad, etc.) as well as at international festivals (Shanghai, Phoenix, Glasgow, Moscow, Helsinki, El Cairo, Quebec…)

In 2007 Los Torreznos took part in the 52nd edition of the Venice Biennale as part of the Paradiso spezzato project in the Spanish Pavilion.
