Concept and direction: Didier Ruiz. Choreography: Tomeo Vergés.
This is not the first time that stage director Didier Ruiz and choreographer Tomeo Vergés have created a show based on their work with groups of teenagers. They did it in Paris in 2013, in Avignon in 2014, and now come to Barcelona with an event that involves pupils from three of the city’s secondary schools. Over the last three months, students have voluntarily attended workshops, learning to move on stage, to project their voices and to master the techniques they need in order to express their thoughts. They will talk to us about the city and their neighbourhood, their relationships with each other, their dreams and their daily lives, becoming at once actors and witnesses of their own transition to adulthood. Do they feel accepted by others? What do they think about love? What do they expect from the future? We will find out in a stage show in which young people speak directly to the audience, but also listen and make themselves heard. The city, the world and life, through teenage eyes.
