The legendary group La Zaranda returns

Once again, the Spanish group La Zaranda will be touring Argentina, where they will present their latest creation, The battle of the absentpremiered in 2021. Starting August 10will perform at the Teatro Regio (Av.Córdoba 6056), belonging to the Buenos Aires Theater Complex (CTBA), where they will be until August 28.

The interpreters of this new creation of the prestigious Andalusian company self-proclaimed as Unstable Theater of Nowhere They are Francisco Sánchez, Gaspar Campuzano and Enrique Bustos. The text is by Eusebio Calonge and the direction of Paco de La Zaranda, as in the productions of recent years.

In this new show we talk about life with the metaphor of a combatwhere the three classic actors of Zaranda, its hard core, are the remains of an army in disarray, in this war without quarter that has lasted more than forty years.

With language as a flag

As usual in the creations of this traditional company, language is its flag in a world that threatens the poetic sense of existence. Everything refers to the useless combat, which seems to be our cultural essence, already almost quixotic. The new creation of the Andalusians highlights, in a satirical tone, dignity and faith as an act of resistance, but with an epic sense.

His characters, as usually happens, represent the always defeated but never defeatedthe survivors in a war against oblivion who fight a war nobody cares.

The La Zaranda Company has been doing theater for more than forty years, with a particular identity that has earned it great international prestige. His career has as theatrical constants: the existential commitment and starting from its traditional roots to reveal a universal symbology.

In addition, as dramatic resources they stand out for the search for a transcendent poetics without losing everyday life, the symbolic use of objects, visual expressiveness, the embodiment of texts in theatrical situations and the embodiment of living characters. To this is added a absolute conviction for the process of creation in community.

As they themselves describe their way of doing theater, “to avoid yawning” is “to go beyond the acquired forms, not to stop searching, to renounce the achievements that can establish the routine, to strengthen a style in permanent transition”

And they add: “The action of creating is important. Not making artistic preserves that open in each performance. You have to maintain the tension, risk it in each situation, develop each scenic reality in its living evolution”.
