El somni de Gulliver

  • Roland Olbeter
  • Sala Tallers
  • al

A classic transformed into a surprising mechanised opera. An unusual theatre experience in which robotised puppets, video and music tell us about Gulliver's journey to the edges of the world.
The German artists living in Barcelona Roland Olbeter, who usually works with La Fura dels Baus and Marcel•lí Antúnez, for whom he has designed all kinds of surprising sound and mechanical installations, is one of the most outstanding creators of contemporary object theatre.
