Juan Carlos Martel Bayod directs the piece by North American playwright Annie Baker in which five somewhat bewildered characters enrol in a summer drama course in a village civic centre
Chosen as one of the ten best plays of 2009 by The New York Times, Time Out and The New Yorker, Circle Mirror Transformation tells the tale of five everyday people with everyday problems who decide to partake in a summer drama course in a village civic centre.
Over a period of six weeks, Martina meets once a week with her four students; her husband, Jaume, Teresa, who passes herself off as an actress, Xus, a recently divorced carpenter, and Laura, a young girl with family problems who is about to begin her university studies. The game of mirrors to which the title of the play refers involves each of the group members mimicking the movements of another group member, thereby transforming the group through a series silences, tension and dialogues that expose the underlying problems of each of the protagonists.
Directed by Juan Carlos Martel Bayod and starring Aina Clotet, Eduard Farelo, Jordi Martínez, Isabel Rocatti and Elena Tarrats, Circle Mirror Transformation (Joc de Miralls) is the second play by young, upcoming, North American playwright, Annie Baker. Adapted by Cristina Genebat, the play manifests our ability, or inability, to communicate with others.
