A Body Somewhere / Un Cuerpo en Algún Lugar
Playwright Gon Ramos
Translated by Kate Eaton
Cast
Spanish: Fran Cantos, Luis Sorrolla
English: Jaime Menéndez, Josh Hull
Synopsis
The play is about a search for love, one love, a restless search over the years, through cities, fires, and trains. Nowadays where everything demands to be instant, this play suggests a break with these rules and questions the time needed to find the inevitable. It takes us into the mind and encounters with “He”, who starts a journey in search of “that person”. We do not talk about Penelope, waiting such a long time, we do not talk about Ulysses, returning home, we speak only of a search heading forwards and only of that one body that we feel has the ability to save us.

The Reality / La Realidad
Playwright Denise Despeyroux
Translated by Sarah Maitland
 
Cast
Spanish: Maite Jáuregui
English: Beth Clarke
Synopsis
Twin sisters attempt an awkward exercise of pretending to be someone else, taking them close to the line that separates good and evil; the love of life and destruction; lucidity and madness. What do you do to pose as someone inside of you? Can you love the living in the same way that you have love for the dead? Is darkness hindered by light?
