We return to the story of Francisco Franco, told to children: what is lifelike in a dictatorship of squares, where triangles and circles are not free? This is an exercise in memory, and a reflection on the dynamics of dictatorship, based on Ximo Abadía’s illustrated book entitled Frank. La increïble història d’una dictadura oblidada [Frank. The incredible story
of a forgotten dictatorship], which was awarded the XIX Booksellers’ Award in 2018.


In a dictatorship of squares, which has been established by restricting the freedom of triangles and circles, Frank invites the audience to join in the game and follow its rules. But every act has its consequences. This is a theatrical game about power and history for children over 7 years old. And an exercise in memory and reflection: how far do dictatorial dynamics extend in our society?
