"Unes abraçades insuportablement llargues" at La Perla 29

By Ivan Viripaiev. Directed by: Ferran Utzet

Friends of the CCCB

Exclusive for Friends of the CCCB

A stark, fantastic fable by Iván Viripaev, one of the most original voices in contemporary theatre, presented for the first time in Catalonia.

Charlie, Monica, Christophe and Amy’s careers intersect with marriages, hospitals, New York, parties, strong and abrupt feelings, and Berlin. Their history makes evident an acute, internal nostalgia: a feeling of emptiness.

In “this world that is really a plastic bag that God has thrown in the trash” the most powerful love will lead to a total loss of the feeling of belonging, of connection: as if some kind of initial failure prevented them from having it , invent it, create it.

Perhaps this is where their enormous desire, their titanic effort to find a way out of his claustrophobic situation, comes from; and it is without a doubt the insistence on this almost epic search that we can only be moved.
