The director Àlex Rigola brings a piece of documentary theatre to the stage, which takes us back to Spain’s transition to democracy, centred around the attempted coup d’état of 23 February 1981.
The piece is based on the novel by Javier Cercas, Anatomy of a moment: the moment is when Adolfo Suárez, the incumbent Spanish president, remained seated while the bullets of the coup conspirators flew all around him in the chamber of the Congress of Deputies and all the other parliamentarians, except for General Gutiérrez Mellado and the general secretary of the Communist Party Santiago Carrillo, took over under their seats. This is an account of this gesture, of an attempted coup d’état, and of some decisive years in the birth of Spain’s democracy.
