El escenario no cambia eres tu el que cambias ... more »I've been curious for a long time to attend this place and see one of the shows, after so long I think I chose the right Ivan off play. The scenario does not change it is you who change from one room to another; one is overwhelming, depressing, tepid, as the protagonist, the other room is fresh, cheerful. It's a dive into a life. To my shocking, a pity they disappear, even if they moved to another place. If you like theater, you get excited and sensitive don't miss it. A classic Chekhov but very current. And don't think it's a monologue or a dialogue, 9 actors on stage, with extensive costumes, with mini tentempie included for the 26 spectators who witnessed the play. This is a vocation for theatre.
Fuimos el último domingo de abril a ver "Cerda", con Dolly. El lugar está en una callecita de la Latina que da un poco de grima, ya que es muy vieja y poco transitada, pero merece la pena sin duda ir.... more »We went on the last Sunday of April to see "Cerda", with Dolly. The place is in a little street of Latina that gives a little grima, since it is very old and little traveled, but it is definitely worth going. You can't pay by card, just cash, so don't forget to bring money in your purse. The girl who gave you the tickets very friendly, the problem is that you have to wait at the door of the street until you are called to start the session, as there is no place to sit inside. The concept is totally innovative; paper of the time (50s) on the walls, curtains and furniture in tune.
This is a microtheatre show, that you shouldn't miss. Crisis created it, and you can take the profit. Within a space of around 20 square meters, you can watch a Strindberg piece( "The Pelican" version) performed by great actors and actresses, that with the crisis were left without jobs. It is as I said, a small theatre(actually a flat¡), but there is nothing small about the performance, you'll share the play with another 25 people(that's the total of seats), the very size of the place makes your emotions more intense, and you feel as if you witnessed a family row¡ in their own parlour, and this for a mere 15€ a seat. Recently "The Guardian" published a feature about this place. Only problem for foreigners, is you should be fluent in Spanish. There is a different play everyday, and you have an ample choice of pieces. Not easy getting tickets, because of huge demand, and limited seats.
It's a house where they do theater. There are various performances throughout the day and you can book the one you like the most. The performances for the most part are participatory so you have to be attentive, the good thing is that that way they make it very enjoyable, it is worth going
