macondo

Inspired by One Hundred years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

This unique show combines instruction based theatre, binaural sound and poetic writing to create an interactive show where Audience members perform for each other following a set of instructions. Choosing between Beginners, Intermediate and Heroes the participants decide the level of involvement they want to have in the show and abandon themselves to a predetermined script to create the village of Macondo.

Do you remember the story?

The wheel has been set in motion and only the fool think he can stop it.
He jumped head first into they abyss.
The Hermit, the Sun, and Death are drawn out.
The Magus is watching and the Hanged man sleeps like a cat: one eye open.

MACONDO appears for fifty minutes only in an empty theatre and takes the shape of the people that inhabit it.
