Acampada (Camping)

2019

Acampada is a simulation of what could happen if 6 friends from different cultures and with diverse abilities were to decide to spend a weekend together in nature.

Acampada is a simulation, a kind of rehearsal of what could happen if 6 friends with diverse cultures and abilities were to spend a weekend together in nature.

How will the situation affect their abilities? Will they be able to overcome or accept their own disabilities? And those of the others? Will they be able to awaken their ability to adapt, to read the world according to the others’ languages?

Las Provincias

"With their particular sense of humour, ingenuity and with a great deal of sensitivity and tact, Pont Flotant once again manage to move, entertain and raise awareness, without any dramatic emphasis."

Afán de Plan

"Theatre to take home with you, within your conscience, with a knot of gratitude in your throat."

Diario Crítico

"Acampada is a pleasant, simple, relatable offering, without any apparent pretensions, but one that penetrates deep into the hearts of the spectators."

Butaca en Anfiteatro

"Not many offerings in the world of theatre and diversity have worked with such honesty from the perspective of people rather than circumstances."

Synopsis

“We like to define Camping as a mechanism that uses different languages and communicational codes to address the spectator. We have built this play with stalls made up of spectators both with and without functional diversity in mind.”

Acampada is a fragile experiment because it relies on the disposition of the audience to complete it, for them to hear beyond the noise, to understand beyond the words, to imagine that which is not in plain view. Camping is also the simulation of a play for the whole audience, for a real majority at least, where the humour, emotion, language and the different theatrical codes serve to establish real channels of communication and meeting points between multiple cognitive, sensorial and emotional abilities.
