Tabakalera taulara : el mundo por montera
Every Thursday this summer, always at half past eight in the afternoon, the rooftop terrace of Tabakalera hosted again a selection of work linked to live performance arts. From 6 July until 31 August we were able to enjoy different proposals that combine sound, the body, movement, choreography and language.
Maia Villot had prepared a selection of works by Rodrigo Cuevas, Maite Arroitajauregi (Mursego), Jorge Dutor and Guillem Mont de Palol, Idurre Azkue and Joseba Irazoki, Hipólito Patón and Vicente Arlandis, Jaume Ferrete, Beatriz Setién and Lisa Nogara, Luciana Chieregati and Ibon Salvador (Colectivo Qualquer) and Nazario Diaz.
Thursday, Thursday, Thursday,
many, many, many Thursdays,
every Thursday in July, every Thursday in August
… up on the fourth floor, up on the rooftop terrace,
under the open sky, when it's still daytime, when it's not yet night-time,
during that in-between where we know how we'll start but not how we'll end.
Something every Thursday.
In each thing some bodies.
Bodies dancing, bodies singing, making sound, vibrating, talking, moving, travelling.
And Frankenstein's wife, the picturesque agitator, Margaret Thatcher, Beyoncé, the human microphone, dancing for the sake of dancing, voices, words, watercolours, velvet, tribute songs, choreographies, actions and invocations, laughter…
All unleashed upwards, without a ceiling to stop them.

El mundo por montera is my second solo act. A sarcastic call to attention in the format of a zarzuela BUFA. Made in Asturias for the world. A new show where I display my universe: a traditional, rural and eccentric world that is also urban, critical and technological. My search is the true essence; a personal work taken to the stage; a sincere exhibition to discern between what's truly important and what is banal and dispensable.
A spectacle where there is more folklore, more popular music and more laughter, all held together with musical and vocal quality.
