4.48 Psicosis (Spanish production)

Teatro del Astillero presenta en Cuarta Pared 4.48 Psicosis de la inglesa Sarah Kane y Ganas de Matar en la Punta de la Lengua del francés Xavier Durringuer Ambas obras forman parte de un díptico que pretende abordar dos muestras de la reciente dramaturgia europea a través de dos de sus autores más representativos.

La propuesta de estos dos montajes parte de un discurso común: la desazón, el desasosiego de una parte amplia de la sociedad contemporánea, que más allá de su estrato social, no encuentra en el entorno de sus vidas los suficientes alicientes para, incluso, querer vivir. Por eso, la forma ideal de presentarlos al público es como en aquellos viejos cines de sesión continua. Una función por la tarde y otra por la noche.

Compañía: Teatro el Astillero
Dirección: Guillermo Heras
Estreno el miércoles 2 de octubre.  Hasta el 27 de octubre

Ganas de matar en la punta de la lengua
De Xavier Durringer
Traducción: Fernando Gómez-Grande
Compañía: Teatro del Astillero
Dirección: Guillermo Heras
