International Solo Festival

Saunterer

Cine-Teatro Garrett, Itinerant show

Synopsis

“(…) For the whole journey is a kind of crusade, preached by some Peter, the Hermit in us, to advance and reconquer this Holy Land from the hands of the Infidels. Walking."
— Henry David Thoreau

Saunterer is a walking performance, based on walking as an act of resistance according to the philosophy of Santiago López Petit and “Pressentiments” by Espai en Blanc.

The performance questions the possibility of abandoning a world where there is no outside, where reality is completely confused with capitalism.

Opening holes to breathe, lighting fires at night. In the depths of our despair, there is a joy that calls to us.

The meeting point for the start of the show will be at the ticket office of Cine‐Teatro Garrett.
This show is not recommended for people with reduced mobility.
