A Taste of Catalan Contemporary Theatre, double bill:

Against Democracy by Esteve Soler, translated by Mike Buck

Democracy is as profitable as McDonalds.
 
Is there anyone that still believes that as citizens we have any power upon our society? Inspired by the French theatrical genre of Grand Guignol, the 7 sketches set the spectator on the verge of horror and humour in astonishing surrealistic scenes. This collection of the burlesque unmasks the paradoxes generated by the times we are living in.

The Audition by Rodolf Sirera, translated by John London

Drama should not be fiction, art or technique...drama should be feeling, emotion...and above all, the joy of transgressing established forms.

How far can we go to seek truth in acting? The play explores the boundaries of truth on the stage. An actor expects to meet a big admirer, a Marquis, when he is swirled into a psychological game and an acting master class that will turn him into a lethal experiment.
