The new work by Les Impuxibles promises to shake us up once again. Harakiri sets out to liberate everything to do with suicide from taboos and stigmas. On stage, a place that makes it possible to revive and to “rekill” the dead, an impossible date takes place between two adults who one day, in a small universe, were mother and son.
The piece stages different inquiries into suicide through a group of performers from different disciplines. The aim of the show is to dramatize a political view of suicide, at the same time as criticizing the administered life and the subjected body, the power that is exercised to ensure life but which at the same time produces alienation and unhappiness.
Les Impuxibles are the artistic fusion of a pianist and a dancer, Clara and Ariadna Peya, sisters, creators and performers – a fusion that contains the power of the artistic quality of each one separately and the harmony of the tie that binds them. Les Impuxibles work with the mixture of languages, research that fuses music and movement with other disciplines of performance, an investigation that never ends and which has led them to the construction of their own language. The company stands out for its social commitment of using art as a megaphone of denunciation and social change.
Programmed by the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (TNC).
On March 25 the company will offer a colloquium post function.
