Sometimes it takes talking to someone else to know yourself.
In the theatre, as in life, Bárbara Bañuelos, theatre director, and Carles A. Gasulla, watchman at a parking lot, discuss the books they’ve read and the precarious jobs they’ve held.
Bárbara and Carles sit in the empty seats around the audience. They talk about job insecurity, colonialism, mental health, and other social stigmas.
The intimacy of their conversation – and their honest self-examination of their positions of power and loneliness – is reflected back at the audience, including everyone present in an expanded exercise of empathy and collective vulnerability.
With Hacer Noche, Bárbara Bañuelos brings her work to Portugal for the first time.
