"La Osadía", by La Chana Theater (Performing Arts)
As its title indicates, the new show of La Chana Theater is that, a daring.
Addressing a classic like The Odyssey , it seems quite daring, but take it to the theater of objects, without a table, without a net, bare chest, building the spaces with balustrades, gutting the hero, recreating in his contradictions, in his hardships, in the search for himself along the most twisted roads, manipulating him as Zeus himself would do, bordering on unreasonableness.
But such are the daring, unconscious and adventurous as the life of Ulysses, the curious, the cunning, the one of a thousand tricks, the one similar to the gods, the infidel, the cruel, the lover, the warrior, the navigator, the hero , but ultimately, man.
If in The Odyssey of Homer the tragedy is chewed, in La Osadía it is chewed like the one who does not know how to eat chewing gum and extracts all its flavor in the first bites, with a crooked mouth, pointing a sly and scathing smile that reveals the intention, as always, to laugh at our own miseries.
Áurea Pérez and Jaime Santos created La Chana Teatro in 1987. Throughout these years they have found their own way of telling stories, always with the object, word, space and interpretation as protagonists. His work is based on metaphor and specialized critics have highlighted its scenic simplicity, the quality of texts, intelligence in staging, thorough work with objects and interpretive quality.
In addition to triumphing throughout the Spanish geography, their shows have taken them to Brazil, France, Belgium, Portugal, Niger, Morocco, Switzerland, Colombia, the United States and Israel.
