A delicate theatre of objects piece based on the writings of children who had never seen the sea.

This is the story of a promise that could not be kept, a promise made by a teacher to his pupils. The teacher was Antoni Benaiges. The pupils were boys and girls from the rural school in Bañuelos de Bureba, a village in the province of Burgos. The promise was made one winter day in 1936. He promised them the sea.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

In 1934 the young Catalan teacher Antoni Benaiges arrived at the rural school of Bañuelos de Bureba, a small village in Burgos. A few months later he pays for a printing machine and a gramophone out of his own pocket. From that same year, boys and girls publish their emotions, dreams and thoughts.
In January 1936, the boys and girls published El mar. Visión de unos niños que no lo han visto nunca. The notebook "contains, in verse format rather than prose, the expressions of schoolchildren about how they imagine the sea, their fears and their dreams." The teacher promises that he will take them to Catalonia that same summer to get to know the sea. On 25 July 1936 Benaiges was executed. The teacher’s promise can no longer be fulfilled.
The piece – the result of our first meeting as creators – proposes a device in which objects, poems and documentary material coexist free of hierarchies.
