Agrupación Señor Serrano
From the leading group of the Catalan scene, Silver Lion at the 2015 Venice Biennale.
Katastrophe is a contemporary fable about ecology and man-made disasters, skilfully told with video, irony and pop ideas. On stage are four performers, eleven scale models and hundreds of gummy bears that suffer earthquakes, oil spills, wars and other disasters.
ZONA K therefore proposes the Sunday afternoon repetition of the play, also designed for families.
The show is wordless, with small text projections in Italian.
Suitable for an audience of children* aged 7+, teenagers and adults.
Conceived by Àlex Serrano and Pau Palacios; performance Àlex Serrano, Diego Anido, Jordi Soler and Pau Palacios; project manager Barbara Bloin; a production Agrupación Señor Serrano and Festival Hybrides de Montpellier; with the support of INAEM; www.srserrano.com
