MONS (When I close my eyes)
Premiered at Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona)
6 April 2013
There's a place in this world where I feel good, my temporary refuge when I need a moment of silence. A fantasy world that helps me compose my thoughts and calm my heart.
There are as many places as people in this world and there are many doors to open. Kids have direct access. For adults, it's often more difficult to find them but when we do, and we step inside, everything is transformed... space and time changes.
We find endless possibilities, discover the answers to all our problems and for a brief moment, we can smile again.
Inspired by the work of the author and illustrator Jimmy Liao, this production is suitable for all ages. It entices us into these intimate universes where we go when things aren't so great. Imaginary worlds where we find security, breathe peacefully and stroll leisurely. A kaleidoscopic world filed with strange magical shapes where everything is possible.
