Pablo Messiez (Las canciones) investigates faith as a driving force for action, inspired by Ordet film C.T. Dreyer.

Only those who have the will to believe act. That is the premise of the work by the Argentine director Pablo Messiez in a production whose title is taken from an extract from the trial of Joan of Arc. According to Robert Bresson's film about her, when she was asked how she knew the voice she heard was from an angel, she replied "because I wanted to believe." For Messiez, this is a good definition of action. The play, which is also influenced by the resurrection scene in C.T. Dreyer's film Ordet, looks at this paradigm with the same team as in Las canciones. This is another production set strictly in the present, which also takes the role of the audience in the entire dramatic event into account. Why, what makes us all - performers and the audience - believe things that are a priori irrational?

The play was created in 2021 in five sessions of Ensayo abierto, as part of the 21 distritos season in Madrid, and will première at the Matadero Madrid this autumn.
