10 keywords. 10 ways. 10 actions. 10 shows.
10 is round and double figure, the one of big occasions to be celebrated and balances to evaluated. These have been years of races, chases, discussions and question marks. Years in which we have experimented and dared. We assumed our liberties and shared them. We have met and gotten to know the neighbours of the district first and then the rest of the world. We have listened and translated different languages. We have gained confidence with new the technologies, the multimedia and the digital, conversed with computers and programmed smartphones, composed playlists and conceived new formats. We have invaded squares, streets and metro stops, walked through peripheral streets and paths as well as looked at the world from above. We have seen dawns and sunrises just outside the city, played with kids and children and chased elderly in tights who believed themselves Superman. We have danced to German pop, the Catalan pasodoble and English rock. We almost founded a party. We fell in love numerous of times like all free girls.
The wish to understand, enter the issues, imagine and discover new ways of doing remains the same to what it was ten years ago. The world for us is yet to leaf, many urgencies to explore, many questions to verify even is often the answers fail to satisfy. And so we continue, always more confident that putting the people and their actions at the center of the projects is a way to listen to a thousand different perspectives and open new outlooks on the world which surrounds us. We are interested in the future. The next ten years. We have always liked challenges. We believe in the purity of the public and the coherence of our work, of which the vision is founded on the belief that artistic creation is an active lever and activator for the reflection and collective action on the social dynamics of contemporary life.
The shows that we present are born and tell lived lives, experiences perhaps extreme, often far from the narration yelled from media and socials. At the base of the artistic research on the shows in programme we can always find a real date, a witness or a historical/scientific document, an urgency to recount. Because they are a set of small stories, daring gestures and controversial choices which make history. And this will continue to be our direction.
10 – double and round figure – it opens already with a +1 to imagine a new decade, depict other worlds, every time more confident the the power of artistic pieces can transform into political action and impact our closest future.
