Wandering in the desert, two men follow Lazaro's tracks. Hunger oppresses, death lies in wait. In a game between the absurd and the real, traces possess the hunters into the delirium of fugitive's story.
Inspired by the classical texts Lazarillo de Tormes (1552 anonymous) and Asinus Aureus (2nd century AD, Apuleius), ¡Lazaro! establishes a dialogue that transcends time and offers a glimpse of human oppression, the manipulation of meaning, the misery that erodes everyday reality. It does so with humour and depth, and with the volume of transformation, of death and resurrection.
¡LAZARO! creative universe now comprises a historical account and long lists of collaborations.
Today our work is driven by the following creative encounters:
¡LAZARO! - frontal, teaser below
¡LAZARO! CIRCULAR - a 360 adaptation to surrounding audience
¡LAZARO VIVE! - a 40 minute music and storytelling experience
