“Theatre is life in a hallucinatory and intense state...”, says the incomparable Paco Nieva in a poem dedicated to the theatre. When I think of theatre, I always remember this valuable and resonant assertion.

It is exciting for me to summon that hallucinated gaze. A gaze that renews the formal power and content of the avant-garde legacy left to us by Nieva.

Coronada y el toro possesses a poetic and intellectual force rooted in popular theatre - one of the fundamental values in Nieva's furious theatre - which means an encounter between very different types of audiences that are equally happy to sit in the stalls or at a party free of labels. Thankfully, what we actually have here is a symbolic unreality with which we are going to offer the spectator a scenic event of joyful Dionysian instinct.

Ideas such as identity, feminine empowerment, the tireless carnal death and resurrection of Spain, mythology and eroticism, meta-theatricality, ritual, humour and the surreal and the suprareal... will come together to coexist in a show that exudes freedom.

CORONADA: Small is the tight-assed hole, through which I have seen the tantalising shadows of the world pass by, but even so, I have seen them glimpse each other in bursts of light.


Not recommended for children under the age of 16. This show contains scenes that audiences may find disturbing.
