El público is one of the classics of historical Spanish avant-garde theatre par excellence When Federico García Lorca wrote his most complex and profound work (The Public) around 1930, he set out to completely revolutionise the stage as a playwright.

The work possesses a dazzling poeticism that links it directly to our great classics of the Golden Age.

It is a precursor of the most radical contemporary theatre.

In the play El público, the protagonist is the public itself, the audience, even though the author makes no concessions to it. His creative freedom reaches the highest peaks. He opens up a world to us in which different narrative planes intertwine. Desperate characters in search of love. But a pure love, without limits, without masks. A love that is perhaps only possible in a theatre under the arena, where the truth of the tombs is discovered. Where we can scream and cry for all that lies ahead of us if we are to be true, unique and free.

On several occasions in the play, the author raises the question of bringing truth to the stage. The difficulties and consequences of doing so. Because the great themes that the author touches on are theatre, love and death.

A dramatic poem that confronts us as an audience with ourselves, shaking us to the core. Because Lorca forces us to look over the railing of our abyss. Onwards. Without fear.
