Buy tickets


Recommended age: from 6 to 12 years old

In this solo for all audiences, Macarena Recuerda seeks to transform the space and what we see. The Watching Machine (or zoetrope: a 19th-century device that creates optical illusions) is now the stage area, where the artist uses a series of artefacts that will allow her to play with light, shadows and reflections to reflect on the meaning of illusion, representation and theatrical convention.

Macarena Recuerda Shepherd has been working as a visual and stage artist for 10 years and has created numerous and diverse works, some of them in collaboration with organizations such as Teatre Lliure, Antic Teatre, NEO Festival, Bilbao Arte and Festival Grec, amongst many others. She is a founding member of Colectivo Estraperlo, a platform for new, uncategorizable creators, since 2008.
