International Solo Festival

PEIX

Diana Bar

Synopsis

Peix is ​​a small format solo, based on the disciplines of circus and clown. A reflection, based on the poetics of the absurd, on Mallorca, on the impact of tourism, on the struggle for power, on emptiness, silence and loneliness in the face of immensity, on the ridiculousness of getting old and the nostalgia of being small. A metaphorical journey to the human depths in search of what makes us keep swimming, searching, paddling despite the magnitude and the unpredictable and always surprising force of the waves.
“This was and was not a fish fishing doubtfully towards the infinite depths, in solitude, without big fish to watch over it, without manta fish to shelter it, without swordfish, without clownfish. Free from all this, and yet can't get it out of the head. Pez-Era”.
