Cris Blanco, Jorge Dutor & Guillem Mont de PalolSpain
What is real and what is imagined ? In this performance the unlikely becomes true and details appear to be very meaningful. Lo minimo is the result of a series of workshops with a young audience to test the process of live writing of a play. With three top performers – set designer Jorge Dutor, choreographer Guillem Mont de Palol and multi-artist Cris Blanco at the controls, pieces of cloth, some mousse and woodblocks are sufficient to create wonderful effects. The three performers examine tricks and lies in situations full of absurdity. In Lo Minimo the illusion becomes more visible in each scene, you discover the hidden tricks of these makers and perplexity soon makes place for roars of laughter. A show for everybody from 8 years that breaks through the traditional codes of the genre with a lot of humour.
Jorge Dutor and Guillem Mont de Palol have formed an artistic duo since 2008. Cris Blanco is a multidisciplinary artist who examines the mixing of performing arts and music. Blanco and the tandem Montdedutor also separately show a performance at NEXT Festival. The duo presents the Gesamtkunstwerk Grand Applause, in which exhibition and choreography merge with the opera Carmen. In her performance Bad Translation Cris Blanco introduces the public of NEXT to a very special Mac computer.
