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

Joan Baixas paints with soil on a large screen illuminated by transparency.

Images appear and fade in combination with slide show and music by Paca Rodrigo.

The show has been touring 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 in Barcelona and many other places).

Mud, slime, dark soil, wet soil. The mud contains all the images and none are fixed. Elementary symbology before myth and ideas. Treatise on 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 dusty plain on the planet, where color is called light. Rain in the desert, wet land. It took shape in Pushkin, near Petersburg, with the mud of a tired, primitive and fertile Russia, and then in the library of Sarajevo, with the ashes of millions of burnt books, an earthquake of ideas burning poetry.


We want to keep Terra Prenyada 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 intervention of chance.
