A mí no me escribió Tennessee Williams (porque no me conocía)
Surrounded by time-worn, threadbare sequin dresses, fantasy shoes and other objects that point to a prosperous past, a woman of uncertain age opens her heart to us from an inhospitable spot under a bridge. Through confession after confession, the protagonist reveals herself to be a lost, emotionally weary and destitute woman struggling to survive by using the weapons of fiction. A woman who emulates the lack of restraint of Tennessee Williams’ heroines and the divas of song such as Chavela Vargas, Mari Trini, Sara Montiel and Lara Fabian as a way to escape from her disheartening reality.
A mí no me escribió Tennessee Williams (porque no me conocía) explores nostalgia, tragedy and comedy and delves into literature and dance. Roberto G. Alonso, the choreographer and dancer, addresses the spectres of a Blanche Dubois who has hit rock bottom in a solo performance that is as powerful as it is moving.
Founded over 20 years ago, the Cia. Roberto G. Alonso is a flagship dance company in Catalonia and Spain due to its particular choreographic language, characterised by the fusion of dance with theatre narrative and an original, imaginative and painstaking concept of performance.
