A play by Jordi Prat i Coll on the mysteries of the brain, the wonder of memories, meanness, innocence and loneliness, set in Barcelona's Raval district.

What's inside our brain? What impenetrable mysteries does it hide? How does someone else's brain work, and what moral or ideological rules govern how it works? That is the question the playwright Jordi Prat i Coll asks in this play about a girl who starts out on a path of no return - a character as capable of experiencing a specific idea of a miracle as she is of entering the mean streets of our era without leaving Barcelona's Ciutat Vella neighbourhood. The streets of the Raval neighbourhood are the backdrop for a reflection on our world's innocence and vanity, in which there is no shortage of poetry or dreamlike situations. A cat, a seagull, a woman watching a film or trying to, a dealer, a man with an unusual gait... They are all characters in a text that is constructed in short sentences, as if they were shot at an audience facing a raw and violent reality which tells us about the fragile and incomprehensible nature of human beings.

A co-production with the Grec 2022 Festival de Barcelona. Play published in collaboration with Arola Editors.

As a director and playwright, Jordi Prat i Coll has received the Barcelona Theatre Prize for Best Musical 2017 for Requiem for Evita and the 2021 Critics Award for script and small format show for M'hauríeu de pagar, among other awards. On the stages at the Lliure, we have seen his plays De quan somiava (2013), Una còpia (2007) and Eva Perón (2004).
