There are three half-naked bodies exposed on stage on purpose: alive and uncensored body masses, true and far different from those usually exposed. Three women. Not young anymore, not yet old, definitely not perfect. Yet they are beautiful, for they are authentic. In a surreal show, they offer themselves to the public as they are, bodies without home or space, evicted from their own self. Off to follow, devour and multiply their own shadows. An ironic and tragicomic look at femininity.
In My Place, the quest for a movement that emerges from the nonconventional bodies of actresses-authoresses of Qui e Ora and the experimentation of self-produced dramaturgy meet Silvia Gribaudi’s ironic approach to and research on the contemporary.

“A show that should be mandatory for all MBA’s and the party congress” [Bernat Puigtobella, Nuvol]
The THEATRE is transformed in a PARLIAMENT with political colors that are still undefined, whilst the spectators, equipped with a remote with which they can vote, become the representatives. What will happen if suddenly, in absence of an effective power, the role of speech goes back to being political.
Maybe the last resort of real politics is that of a total absence of power. Pendiente de voto is a show that tries to be that last resort. It is not a false version of a parliamentary debate, but a real version of the actual false debate. Not a fictitious politics but a make-believe politics: authentic politicians against real politicians or true politics against every form of realpolitik. Immersive theatre? Or maybe more emergency theatre…
A political humoristic reflection that faces the mechanisms of power in democracies and the totalitarian thinking in communities. A reflection on the word ‘citizenship’ and on participatory democracy, that can only make us think of the next political elections.
