Com a pedres – Como piedras
Max Aub Award Collection (Valencian/Spanish bilingual edition)
To travel at the speed of light and come to a sudden standstill. To be like William A. Fuqua, five-time Guinness Record Holder for motionlessness. To be as fast as Superman, to reverse the Earth’s rotation, to turn back time in order to save Lois and swim in a Toi paddling pool once again. To start at the end, to return to the beginning or to remain suspended, timeless. Wasting time as a philosophy of life. Like stones.
Performed for the first time at the Sala Flotant, Valencia, in March 2006, Like Stones is a very personal reflection on the passing of time and the way in which the memory mixes reality with fiction and includes some of the actors’ family members on stage. A dramaturgy which plays with real time, time through memories and that of the actual performance.
