FESTIVAL OF SPANISH THEATRE
A play written by Juan Carlos Rubio, discusses frontiers, migration, human stupidity, and the extent to which humans can be manipulated. The play is also a tragicomic portrait of the soul of two individuals lost in the desert of life. The playwright invents a world of voids, of lacks of communication between human beings and between countries, a picture of the absurdity we invent day after day when we activate our intellectual borders.
Los Espejos de Don Quijote
The play is based on new research into the over-mythologised personality of the protagonist, Cervantes. We know a few facts about Cervantes’ life, some odd pieces of the jigsaw, but these have not allowed us to build a complete and realistic picture of him.
This jigsaw, this story, is about the trajectory of Cervantes – now revealed in the play – and as such it should be considered as a piece of transformational art, as an act of rectification through art and culture.
