El Conde de Torrefiel are one of the most exciting and provocative theatre companies to emerge from Spain in recent years.
Their newest work, Guerilla, presents the confused and contradictory inner universe of a group of people that inhabit the same moment in time, move through the streets of the same city, share the collective consciousness of the same continent, and are affected to a greater or lesser degree by the same consequences.
Even so, they don’t know how to face a world that has changed too much since the beginning of the 20th century and that is in constant need of new rules, symbols, and tools for its interpretation.
The piece is made up of three distinct parts; an electronic music concert, a Tai Chi class and a conference. The actions take place in the near future in three different cities. The participants in these events dance, talk, and listen.
A projected text, loaded with the most intimate thoughts of those present, is compared to and superimposed upon the tableaus they make.
