El Puente De Piedras Y La Piel De Imágenes
Momo and Mung remember how they first met. They don’t speak the same language, but they have a common past: the violence in their country has forced them to separate from their families. They must confront socially destroyed landscapes as they journey towards a new place to live, and the hope of a possible new world. Using empty space, five performers make use of the body and the voice to tell a tale of survival, where music, dance, masks, costumes and play speak directly to those who listen. It is an act of rescuing narration, in a community ritual reminiscent of the many traditions in which orality and ancestral imagery allow us to empathise with our pasts, with other stories and with diverse ways of life. The play reminds us that telling stories prevents the memory of a community from being extinguished.
