WHERE I WRITE FROM:
The relationship between the figure of branches and the figure of rattles in the second painting of Lorca's El público is worked on by Alexia Sayagó from the idea of the expanded body. The theater allows him to role-play each character to address the tensions between individual and collective thought, between the first-person singular and the first-person plural. Branches and rattles are, for Sayagó, permeable individuals, with a fluid identity, without sex or gender. They are bodies in motion that affect each other and the reader/spectator. Therefore, the conversation is not only bidirectional but also omnidirectional. The public can pass.
