Mi gran obra (un proyecto ambicioso)

David Espinosa brings us a large-scale performance on a small scale. Shall we play at staring budget cuts, uncertainty and opulence in the face?

Mi gran obra is the piece I’d create if I had unlimited money to spend, the biggest theatre on Earth, three hundred actors, a military brass band, a rock group, animals, cars and a helicopter. Mi gran obra is utopian. We artists have always faced uncertainty and scarcity. And in our work, we have always stressed this, devising tools to overcome limited resources, making a virtue of necessity, using shortcomings and capitalizing on failure as a springboard for creation. And that’s why, in these complicated socioeconomic times where very few people can allow themselves to splurge, we thought it was the perfect time to tackle our first mega-production, an ambitious project. In Mi gran obra, we’ve decided to go whole hog without sparing a dime, staging a large-scale work and lavishly bringing to life our ideas, no matter the cost, with unlimited materials and artistic talent. But of course, there’s one small caveat: we’ve scaled things down. That is, we’ve thought big and built small, using architectural approaches and techniques.
