The new production from Les Impuxibles promises to unsettle us again.

Harakiri wants to rid everything that surrounds suicide of taboos and stigmas and give it space and listen. The show brings together the questions generated by the duel, through the presence of a mother who explains herself after dying. Is it possible that a mother teaches us more alive than dead? Is it possible that someone's suicide makes us freer?

With its own language that combines music, dance and text and always seeking activism through art, Les Impuxibles have also explored disorders and mental health in Suite TOC núm 6. and sexual violence in AÜC-el so de les esquerdes.

Suicide is the big taboo in the media, due to the belief that talking about it multiplies cases.
Here it is not suicide for reasons of Japanese honour (hara-kiri), but that of a mother who also has a cut in her belly: a caesarean section. Indelible tattoo of the creator. A child is orphaned, a child who, knowing that these behaviours occur more often in youth, tells himself that “this death was his” and that perhaps he belongs more to his mother’s world than to the world of the living.
The play makes different inquiries into suicide through a group of music, dance and contemporary circus artists. With this it seeks to dramatise a political vision of suicide, as well as being a critique of the managed life and the subjected body, the power that is exercised to secure life but that at the same time creates alienation and unhappiness.
