La lengua en pedazos

Juan Mayorga_Dirección Diego Álvarez

© CNT / Sergio Carreón Ireta

Juan Mayorga's text comes with an enormous linguistical richness. The old spanish language in which is written, suggests a game with the word and the music that is one of the main point of this staging. The other one is the cuisine. During his vast work, Santa Teresa often talks about orchards, recipes and how "entre pucheros anda Dios". The meeting between Santa Teresa and the Inquisitor happens while she is cooking for her Sisters in the convent of San José. The staging uses the kitchen to suggest a sensory game between both characters and spectator. Not only we will see the meeting among characters, as well as the smell of Santa Teresa's kitchen that will be the background.

Besides the simphony within Juan Mayorga's text, the play will be using percussions to help accentuate the rhythmic and emotional moments. Our scenical space does not consist of nothing more than a table which will be illuminated in a similar way as a ray of sunlight across the windows of a convent. The deep chiaroscuro that provoke this source of light recall painters like Velázquez, Rembrandt o Caravaggio, and allow the creation of convincing images. The moments of the play are composed in the space as they were a serie of paintings made by using the characters. One of our important sources of inspiration to compose this work was the Baroque and Renaissance art. By means of the images and the wardrobe that clearly refer to the Santa Teresa period, and the musicality composed with contemporary instruments, a bridge between history and our present time is weaved, and by using this game the importance of this discussion is highlighted between Santa Teresa and the Inquisitor to understand many things about humanity in this actual period.
