THE MOUNTAIN

28 + 29 november 2020

FOCUS: HUMAN

We all lie. We do this on average three times a day. Or at least we are not strictly faithful to the truth, we hide information, we are not completely honest with our neighbours when we find them in the elevator, we lie to the doctor, we soften the words when we speak to our loved ones. And they all lie to us. Our friends, our brothers and sisters, our bosses, our children, our politicians, our enemies, our friends in social networks. Lying is everywhere and we cannot deny it because doing so would leave us unarmed and vulnerable.

We should embrace lying, we should teach lying at school, teach how lying works so that it can be detected, compared and deactivated. Because if lying exists, then the truth also exists and, therefore, we can strive for it. Lying and truth are only narrative exercises and, as every narrator knows, stories are all form and just little content. Therefore, faced with the same facts, many different stories can arise, many truths. Are they all true? Are they all a lie? Does the truth really exist? Is lying the only possibility out there? How do you spot a lie? And more importantly, how do you find out the truth? There is a widespread belief that traces the history of ideas from the Greeks: climbing a mountain, with all the sacrifices it implies, all efforts, inconvenience, to reach the top and to see reality for what it is, and not only shadows or reflections. For this project, with a very simple narrative trick, the truth becomes The Mountain.

The show of the Catalan company will close the Theatre Season 2020 REALITY
