ENTERTAINEMENT by Manuel Rodríguez

ENTERTAINMENT is a work that has no beginning; it interrupts an order and a ba- lance to give way to the show. On this stage, Manuel Rodríguez, Candela Capitán and Paula Tato play three rarefied and affected beings who move themselves fed by their audience and their self-image.

As if mindfulness and entertainment were similar, a cruel and tender commentary on empathetic distance is proposed. When it is large, as in the hundreds of ephe- meral images that make up a mandala or an Instagram profile, the character is only part of a part made up of parts. And only if this distance is small can we know and confront the anthropomorphic being that inhabits both the self and the other.

The work unfolds in three chapters. First a brief introduction, Mandala. The second is an unfolding of the first, an episode for two performers, Fractal. Finally, Totem, a metaphor that envelops the previous chapters, symbolising an imaginary space outside of time, located between the spectator’s gaze and the performers’ bodies.

With this work, Manuel Rodríguez takes up again his concerns about identity, perception and border spaces, in search of a body that springs passionately from the depths.
