Suz/O/Suz investigates the idea of primordial man, who plays, discovers, creates myth and language. With this performance La Fura dels Baus became a cult theater group, a true international sensation.
Suz/O/Suz is an abstract show containing one idea: man. From that axis comes a fiction about human nature, about a man anguished by his own conscience. In order to develop this idea scenically, La Fura dels Baus devised a set which, just as in Accions, took advantage of the architectural elements offered by the different performance spaces, but which incorporated an entire complex and intricate series of scenic elements created by the company, which were able to modify the space and the audienceâs participation. Poles, carts and moveable platforms, bathtubs and pools, scenic pieces which contained their own meaning and allowed the group to develop their language in order to express their vision of life.
Suz/O/Suz presents an individual who has put matter to work for him. He the gods by supplanting them in their creative role. In Suz/O/Suz, La Fura dels Baus reinvents ritual, perhaps this is the concept which best describes the show.
Before the premiere of Suz/O/Suz, there was a performance of Give Me a Bone, Nuba at the KGB bar in Barcelona. This was the seed of what would later become Suz/O/Suz.
At the time the groupâs stay in the Sudan, where they supposedly came up with the show, was discussed. This information was disseminated in various media and increased the ritual reading of Suz/O/Suz.
It was probably with this show that the group became cult figures on the international theatre scene. Due to this La Fura dels Baus went on the longest tour that they can remember and Suz/O/Suz became the show that the company has performed most.manipulates, plays, learns, creates myth and language and somehow challenges.
