NO DUERME NADIE is a multi-disciplinary experimental performance blending physical theater, live music, and visual arts.

Departing from the themes of historical memory and socio-political forgetting in Spain, the performance problematizes the “Pact of Forgetting” of 1977. This pact, a political decision by both left and right-wing parties in Spain, was aimed at moving beyond the Spanish Civil War and the repression and crimes of Francoism, focusing on a democratic future under the motto “FORGIVE AND FORGET.” However, it is estimated that in Spain, there are still more than 4,000 mass graves containing the remains of over 114,226 individuals who were murdered, tortured, executed, and forcibly disappeared during the Spanish Civil War and the dictatorship.

 

How long does it take for these corpses to become romantic?

How long does it take for these bones to become mere objects, losing their identities?

How long does it take for them to become “just history”?

 

NO DUERME NADIE (KEEGI EI MAGA) immerses the audience into a highly symbolic, distorted, ironic, and grotesque historical nightmare born by collective amnesia; a dis-remembering that perpetuates cycles of trauma, violence, anger, suffering, war, and victimhood.

 

This project has received a Research, Creation, and Thought Award from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona 2023.
