_Playlist for a drifting continent

by Paco Gámez_ from Virgilio

Direction_José Luis Arellano García

For the first time, LaJoven and Teatro Circo Price join forces to create this show that brings together 20 young artists from the world of theatre, circus, music and dance on stage.

A poor settlement, on the edge of a Mediterranean city, has just been destroyed by a group of invaders shouting “We don't want you here. OUTSIDE!". A young man flees from the flames and his girlfriend refuses to accompany him, preferring to stay with the ashes of what was their home. If that neighborhood was called Troy and that boy, Aeneas; he would have to find his place in the world with the promise of a possible future.

Virgil used the Greek past to tell the present of his Rome. We dialogue with the Latin poem to tell the present of this complex Europe
and diffuse; arrogance and exclusive, sometimes; generous, radicalized...


And here comes Aeneas, running through the streets of our city, lost, but ambitious; naive, but shaken by life; fearful, but full of desire; already a man, but without a future, with one eye on hope and the other on the insurmountable past.

Aeneas is not going to stop and is ready to leave everything behind: his house, the sea, the
love, friends, everything. "Is this being a hero?" he wonders.

“Fata viam invenient / Fates find their way.” Virgil answers him 22 centuries ago.

The XII songs of La Aeneida are here a playlist full of great songs: music for a beating, sensual rhythms, sad songs, karaoke... Sometimes you have to go back to the beginning to know who we are and why we are here.
