Show Details

Catalan artist Xavi Bobés returns to the festival with his brief history of Spain in the second half of the twentieth century, for five people.

Around a small table, in an intimate salon setting, a powerful sequence of close-up sensory experiences invoke old memories and invent new ones. Through this miscellany of sights and sounds, objects and photos, a fascinating story unfolds, exploring memory and identity. Like a croupier, or medium at a séance, Bobés deals out history and brings it to life, manipulating both past and future.


Premiered at Barcelona’s famous Grec Festival in 2015, and first seen at LIMF in the following year, this exquisite piece of theatre has been acclaimed around the world. Very limited capacity – book now.
