Inspired by the observation of all that surrounds us which Georges Perec wrote about, with the urban performance [The Frame] the Austrian/Catalan collective Elétrico 28 invites us to accommodate ourselves in a pop up theatre situated in a calm city street to observe life flowing, to think about it, calculate it, determine it and share it. $ characters, trained in the observation and organisation of space, of things and living beings, immerse themselves in the vertigo of the present and translate, with poetic simplicity, what happens through letters, the letters in words and the words in phrases. For a short lapse of time, everything becomes a big theatre play which never ends. A comedy with no plot which stays in equilibrium on the edge of banality of the things which take place through the theatre’s magnifying glass. [The Frame] is an invitation to open eyes and heart to discover the irrelevant, insignificant, the things in life. [The Frame] is a great opportunity to stop and observe. A drastic exercise. A pacific rebellion against dominant thought.

Eléctrico 28 is a collective of austrian and catalan artists that dedicates its work to the public space and its inhabitants. They love the surprises of the streets, the cinematographic images which can be created on this vast stage in continuing evolution and the visual memory which remains when we go. They love exploring the gray areas between reality and fiction, putting in discussion the social and theatrical conventions and rethink the role of the public. Humorism and filanthropy are the principal driving forces of their wor
