The word of Pablo Mizes

The author explains that the work refers to the founding drama of a family. “Each one of the members is crossed by an obsession: Ismael (the father), for understanding the sinking of his ship at the origin of the tragedy; Marina, (the daughter) for knowing his story and Nerea (the mother), for knock down the unspeakable,” he says.

And he adds: “The marine world works as a metaphor for a drama where the truth emerges trying to break the silence. It is about the construction of a watery universe, where at every step the plot is revealed through the voice of a snail“. According to Mizes, the figure of the snail, like a whisper, tells us the traumatic origin of life history.

The work, moreover, is a project of visual and auditory experimentation that tries to find a meaning beyond a realistic-naturalistic style of reproduction, which usually arises from a text. And it has the participation of the singer and composer julia mizes on stage.

According to the director, “as a work team we agree on narrative principles and seek to capture them with the multimedia resources that we are interested in exploring,” he says: “The dramatic text accompanies us in the experience. We make theater by letting the text circulate among us.”

“We are looking for a work that invites the spectator who goes to the theater to complete with fantasy everything that the scene keeps unexpressed,” says Mizes. “In a space based on counter-forms and extractions of parts of reality from visuals and strong contrasts of light and shadow, we define our search for an abstract theater“.

According to the author, space is not a wrapper within which some things happen, but a dynamic element of the entire dramaturgical conception and, from there, the necessary atmosphere arises to create a subjective universe.
