According to an old Spanish folk tradition, villagers used to cry directly into the cloudy sky to ward off an approaching storm. With a canticle, they tried to scare away lightning and turn hail into raindrops. A nublo!
This performance without players places you in the eye of the storm and in the middle of an intense sensory experience, in a landscape that is halfway between the scenography of an opera and a cloudy valley, between geology and an amusement park. The characters you meet there are neither people nor animals, neither monsters nor gods, but rather natural phenomena. In the microclimate of the theatre space, geodynamic and atmospheric processes come into play, at the juxtaposition where the nature of the theatre and the audience meet and influence each other.
A Nublo is an invitation to understand the theater as a natural space. An ecosystem with a specific topography and machinery. Light, sound and machines are not at the service of a choreography, but are the choreography itself. To make this visible, hearable and tangible, Edurne and Maria have worked together with light designer Leticia Skrycky and sound designer Charo Calvo.
