Alegria de viver

SCULPTURE (to Artist): “I made you. I shaped you as a sculptor.” 

The clash between a sculptor and his sculpture about the value of art, the role of the artist and the cultural market is the basis of Alegria de Viver. On stage, a Sculptor plans to get rid of his past works to start searching for new artistic forms.

A Sculpture comes to life to claim its place. As in a kaleidoscope, characters take turns on both roles: who is the artist and creature?

The result is a light show, full of beauty, poetry, plot twists, and humor.
