An Antic Teatre project with support from GREC 2022 Festival of Barcelona

Supported by:

Las cosas exposes the relative importance of objects. How they exist both outside people and inside people. The performance piece juggles humour and paradox to play with the idea of the value of things and the possibilities of having, keeping or thinking things.

Los Torreznos, like any two ordinary people, pose questions and try to understand how ‘things’ are done. What things are in your head? What things do you need? How do beings that weren’t things become things? Where do we keep things? etc.

The resulting piece of investigative performance contains large doses of improvisation and plays with the reality of theatre itself. 

Los Torreznos (Jaime Vallaure and Rafael Lamata) are a pair of performance artists whose work takes a conceptual stand, using a minimum of props and relying mainly on their presence, their bodies and their words. Based on humour as a means of highlighting the absurdity of normalised human behaviour, their work lies somewhere in between what is described as ‘action art’ and ‘performance work’. Los Torreznos use simple forms, accessible to everybody, not just specialists in the languages of contemporary art, to conduct their research and experimentations in expression. Their shows have been presented at many Spanish festivals (Escena contemporánea, Mapa, In presentable, QUAM, Pan, Contenedores, Mad, etc.) as well as international festivals (Shanghai, Phoenix, Glasgow, Moscow, Helsinki, El Cairo, Quebec…).
