ROGER BERNAT/FFF (ES)
NO CONVERSATION OF INTEREST
The show is canceled, according to the regional ordinance of 04/03/20 and will be rescheduled.
Catalan director Roger Bernat returns to ZONA K for the 2020 REALITY Theatre Season with a show that is about a highly topical theme.
In 2012, some inhabitants of Ceuta left their families to go to Syria. During the weeks that they were in Turkey and Damascus, they called their relatives regularly. The police tapped their phones and all recorded conversations were subsequently included in the dossier of the trial that took place in Madrid. The verdict was the conviction of eleven people for participation in the recruitment network of the Islamic State. It was the first trial in Spain against the collaborators of the Islamic State. The dossier is the heart of this show: an immersion not only in words of the suicide bombers but also of the people close to them, the translators, the police and the judges who followed the interceptions.
Three actresses read or repeat the telephone conversations of Samra, Sanae and Nayua, wives of three jihadists who immolated themselves in Syria during summer 2012. Their conversations are simultaneous. The audience, equipped with a 3-channel wireless headphone, must navigate through words to reconstruct the facts, as did the secret services a few years earlier. At the end of the show, no two spectators will have listened to the same conversation.

Roger Bernat, a Catalan artist and director, after having started his architecture and painting studies, studied dramaturgy and direction at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona where he graduated in 1996, winning the extraordinary recognition. In the early years he worked as a director, playwright and performer with the General Elèctrica company which he directs together with Tomás Aragay. In 2008 he founded Roger Bernat/FFF and begins to create performances in which the audience takes the stage and becomes the protagonist. “Spectators are immersed in a device that invites them to obey or conspire, and in any case to pay with their own bodies and commitment.” The first participatory performance is Domini Públic (2008), followed by Pura Coincidencia (2009), La consagración de la Primavera (2010), Please continue (Hamlet) (2011), Pendiente de voto (2012), RE-presentation: Numax (2013), Desplazamiento del Palacio de la Moneda (2014), Numax-Fagor-plus (2014), We need to talk (2015), No se registran conversaciones de interés (2016-17) and The place of the Thing (2017 ).
