PREGNANT EARTH

Dust, water, mud. The earth is always pregnant, about to give life. A trip around the world.
Small stories that create images. Visual show, live painting, a cappella music.

 

Joan Baixas paints with earth on a large screen illuminated by transparency.
The images appear and disappear combined with a slide show and music by Paca Rodrigo.

The show has toured the international circuit since 2001 (Centre Pompidou in Paris, Guggenheim Museum in New York, Madrid Autumn Festival, National Theaters in Toulouse and Warsaw, Teatre Lliure de Barcelona, Festival de Charleville-Meziérès and many other places).
 

Mud, slime, dark earth, pregnant earth. The mud contains all the images and none are fixed. Elementary symbology, before myth and before ideas. It deals with the different landscapes of love, supreme ingenuity. It is not a fixed show, but a process of actions around the earth, a pre-show.
It started in the Australian desert with the discovery of the largest impoverished plain on the planet, where the only color is light. Rain in the desert, pregnant land. He took a form in Pushkin, near Petersburg, with the mud of a tired, primitive and fertile Russia, and then in the Sarajevo library, with the ashes of millions of burned books, an earthquake of ideas burning poetry.

 

We want to keep TIERRA PREÑADA always at the beginning, in a pre-show, avoiding the performance of ideas and the theatrical show, to stay in a previous, elementary ceremony, where the raw poetic materials are composed with_cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ intervention of chance.
