About »La Tempestad en Casa«
»La Tempestad en Casa« was a collective, virtual and remote experiment carried out in co-production with the National Theater Company of Mexico, with the participation of the CNT cast and Young Creators of FONCA.
18 artists from the cast of the National Theater Company of Mexico, including actors, musicians and dancers,10 audiovisual artists who were beneficiaries of the National Theater Company Program of the National Fund for Culture and Arts of Mexico, and the artistic and technical team of Fundación Épica La Fura dels Baus, composed by engineers, video artists, philosophers, set designers and producers have collaborated in this project that was presented on October 18, 2020 within the framework of the 48th edition of the International Cervantino Festival.
The project takes as reference the classic of literature The Tempest by William Shakespeare, the common link and the ideal architecture to make joint work possible. The reflection on revenge, forgiveness, repentance and above all a work around colonialism are mixed with a colorful aesthetic that gives voice to the customs and traditions of Mexican folklore.
The performance, co-created in less than 20 sessions, hybridizes digital techniques and live staging. The different videoconferencing platforms used for the project forced its participants, most of them in a confinement situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic in Mexico, to take advantage of their own environment, to reinvent the domestic space as a space for creation and use all its own resources to generate this work without borders.
