Manes

Premiere: 14/06/1996

Description

Taking the concept of cultural diversity as a conceptual starting point, Manes develops different metaphors about basic elements of birth, death, sex and food. This performance continues investigation the essence of “Furan language”.

Synopsis

Manes is the last of the shows La Fura conceived entirely without outside collaborations. The different parts of the show were produced based on the idea of cultural diversity in order to express humanity’s common links, among them the concepts of birth, death, sex and food.

The dramaturgy of Manes is based on a grammar of simultaneousness as opposed to continuity. A quick switching of emotions and sensations. An ahistorical dramaturgy in which the plot is the here and now. A group of contrasting scenes in which different worlds share time and space. A gothic story that witnesses, unmoved, the clash between different private lives constantly surprised by a revealing light. Manes is a public show of private facts. It shows human attitudes that often, because of culture, remain hidden behind the veils of home, family, or community…

Manes doesn’t formulate a conventional linear plot and, therefore, is difficult to describe. Suffice to say this show took rhythm, physical performance and references to myth and ritual to an extreme.
