“Solfatara”, in the Círcol Maldà

The production by the theatre company Atresbandes returns to the city’s theatres a year after its debut and as part of an international tour

Following its successful debut in May of last year, Solfatara can once again be seen up until the 13th of April in the Círcol Maldà. This is the third piece created by the company Atresbandes, consisting of Mònica Almirall, Miquel Segovia and Albert Pérez Hidalgo, and the visit to Barcelona offers audiences an opportunity to see the play before it continues its international tour.

The play is a portrait of a couple facing the monotony of their everyday lives. Miquel and Mònica sit at a table for breakfast, lunch and dinner but at this point they have nothing to say to each other. The audience hears the innermost thoughts of the couple through an in-house terrorist who allows them to voice their feelings, thereby setting in motion an imminent volcanic eruption.

Solfatara is a precise geological term for the steam vents common to volcanic terrain where gases escape at extreme temperatures due to the action of a dormant volcano.

The play is presented in Spanish and is inspired by the books A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments, by Roland Barthes and Anatomy of Fear by José Antonio de Marina. It has won awards in several festivals (Birmingham and Kosovo).
