What can lead you to wish for the death of someone you love?

A daughter has to take care of her father who, after suffering a stroke, undergoes a process of physical and mental deterioration that makes him totally dependent. The lack of personal resources and the precariousness of public authorities will make the situation enter into a kind of free fall spiral.

What is the point of keeping alive the body of someone who has lost all the faculties that make us human?
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

El pes d’un cos forms part of a series of texts on which I have recently worked and that are inspired by the relationship I have had with my sick father, the different stages of his sickness, the transformation of the affective bond and, particularly, what accepting his dependency and what the process of physical and mental decay have meant.
In short, the issue of ageing in today’s society, as well as what taking care of someone means. Often, the lack of personal resources and the precariousness of public authorities make the situation enter into a kind of free fall spiral.
Now that my father is no longer here, I want to stage this text as a kind of celebration, sharing with the audience an experience that becomes both intimate and social.
A multidisciplinary production that will combine dramatic text, live music and projections, where the rawest and most current realism dialogues with the theatre game, humour and imagination.
