Five hours of theatre in the solitude house with seven actresses, a cellist and an orchestra of mariachis, Spain’s Strongman champion and a nurse. A place where excessive feelings are compensated by physical effort.
A total success at the Festival de Otoño de Madrid 2009 and the 2010 Avignon Festival.
Premiere in Catalonia.
"Five hours worked to exasperation with a furious urge to understand just why everything is going so badly." (Brigitte Salino, Le Monde)
"She has an enormous stage presence: she modulates her voice from a roar to a whisper, moves her arms, twists her neck as we imagine they did in the Greek tragedies, and expresses herself with both face and hands; and she is the author of her words." (Eduardo Haro Tecglen, El País)
