Based on the concept of plankton, microorganisms essential to our planet’s existence, this piece aims to highlight the idea that small things are essential for life. The show aims to take us – through the body and movement – to a world where everything is possible, where the little things take on great importance. Plankton, also makes us question our relationship as humans with the tiny creatures that live underwater.
The Big Bouncers collective, formed in 2012 by the creators Cecilia Colacrai, Anna Rubirola and Mireia de Querol, work along three lines: scenic creation, the creation of performances for unconventional spaces and pedagogy. So far, they have released several pieces, the last one a new production co-produced by Mercat de les Flors: Si estiguéssims soles a l’Univers, seria una gran pèrdua d’espai (If we were alone in the Universe, it would be a great waste of space) (2019). Plàncton is directed by Anna Rubirola, who has created many works with the collective, as well as individually, having worked with many choreographers.
