With the collaboration of the Embassy of Colombia, on 25 and 26 August at 8 p.m., the Colombian creator Jimmy Rangel comes to Veranos de la Villa, at the Centro Cultural Conde Duque, with the piece Olvido, inspired by the short stories of Agatha Christie, narrated from the fiscality of the performers and inspired by mystery and surrealism. This work is a journey between fiction and reality, between solitude and the forgetfulness that gives the piece its title.
In a glass house, where everything can be seen, where everything seems so fragile that it could break at any moment, the performers look for each other, remember each other, leave each other constant messages that they are not sure if the other will hear or read. Locked in the same space, they are terrifyingly seen to move away from each other, they become ghosts for each other, they disappear.
In Olvido, Rangel explores suspense and terror as a narrative genre. The scenic device created for the work allows a constant play between apparitions and disappearances and puts the spectator in a special position of voyeur. Recurring elements in the company’s work reappear: water, shadows, the manipulation of objects, stupefying sounds, the dramaturgy of light and the house as an extra everyday space.
