This ensemble, engaged in exploring new dramatic languages, recreate the most famous hiding-place in history: an ordinary house in an ordinary neighbourhood in Pakistan. And they ask whether, through superimposition, copies can replace reality.
The house where Geronimo is hiding in Abbottabad. An exact copy of this house at a military base in North Carolina. Another copy of the same house in Jordan, where a film is being shot. The greatest manhunt in history. A sheriff obsessed with a white whale. The boys from Take That training for a historic mission. Cowboys and Indians. Airplanes and beer. Copies, reflections, imitations and hamburgers.
Through their trademark language (models, video projections, real-time video manipulation and hard-working performers) Agrupación Señor Serrano present a western in which reality and its copies become mixed on stage to create a ruthless pop portrait of the decade following September 11 and taking us into the 21st century. Step up and enjoy the latest show from a Barcelona-based troupe of artists who are garnering considerable international acclaim.
