They’re anomalous twins, as a woman and a man, they both have been created in the ‘Womb of humans’, and that is exactly where the fatal accident that marked their lives took place – she was born with two hearts, her own and her brother’s, leaving him – Mr. Mole – in the purest of emotional apathies.
The story takes place in a forgotten motel, a place that used to have its customers in the past, but which has been deserted ever since the motorway was built. These are places of abundant narrative charge, where stories soak through walls unable to hide.
No neon signs nor fascinating architecture, no tourists nor the craving for shopping of the well-off. The difference between its idiosyncrasy and the one of a downtown street is that here everything is real, whereas in the city the individual is in danger because everything is a fake and one cannot see what is coming.
Ovidia accepts it with no other choice but to take refuge in her room, so as not to give in to the beauty and the horror of the world. After many years of separation Mr. Mole has just moved into this Motel on the outskirts where his sister lives. This encounter will set them out on a life-changing journey…
Founded by Vera Glez in 2011, the purpose of is to become the platform for its members to develop editorial, theatre and performing arts projects that specialize in adult puppetry and object theatre.
The dramatic search is done collectively and work is seen as a theatre lab that focuses its research on the interaction between the actor and the puppet/object (emotional encounters, body-matter dialogue, dispute over the possession of the dramatic space, narrative replacement).
In opposition to conventional theatre, where the actor puts his voice and body to the director’s service, we suggest a meticulous way of working where the director orchestrates every discovery found by the actors during the process; but never losing the dramatic unity nor the final purpose: the communicative encounter with the audience.
