synopsis

 

Ensamble “Children of Greece” is a twelve-hour event divided into three parts. Following the model of the ancient Dionysians and Baroque Festivals, the doors of the Corral de Comedias de Alcalá de Henares will be open from morning until night to explore the tragic Greek world from the eyes, bodies, experiences and desires of Los Números Imaginarios Company.

On their second inmersive show (the first one was The last night of Don Juan, presented in 2017 Clásicos en Alcalá), they combine texts from the written and oral tradition of the classical repertory to the contemporary update, thinking about the experience of theatre as a ritual.

Without interpreting “tragic heroes” but doing “the children of…” this Ensamble guided by Carlos Tuñon and Gon Ramos poses some questions…

What do the words “tragedy” mean today, do they mean sacrifice” and “truth”? What are we supposed to do with the heritage? How to –reinterpret- the memory? Is our-tragedy valid? Has our life a common origin with the Greek narratives?

 

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,

And what I assume you shall assume,

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

   Walt Whitman
