Juan JUAN NAVARRO/Musings on war and …
02.06.12 – 20:30 / OFFESTIVAL
“It occurs to me to physically work on unlived experiences, as none of my generation in Western Europe experienced a real war, although there were conceptual wars which nurtured our ideals , but nobody saw a bombing, no one saw his family die in a shootout, no one was in a concentration camp … it occurs to me to fantasize about the not experienced in the art of war, to create a pure physical context, without political or moral speculation. A puzzle of physical experiences about the war, that will sustain in a banal or at least not dramatic way , all insignificant themes and aspects of our domestic life, about our privacy, which is really the only thing that concerns us.
These fragments between intimacy and imagination of those places of violence not experienced, will be confirmed as a stage work after a week of work. I think the scenario does not mean anything until it reaches the public’s presence.A scenic building workshop involves a space where all who participate (including me), can be exposed generously to certain ideas or proposals with unlikely or unpredictable results. In short, the scenario is just that, making the imagined likely .”
This “THEATRICAL CREATION WORKSHOP” expects motivated participants ready to have flexible working hours and ready to go on stage with this very short creation that will close this year OFFestival edition on the 3rd of June.
