Children of rag

A circle, a ventriloquist, a dance of the shadows of conscience, a blind man, transformed traditional songs, a hanging cord, the movement of time, the apparition of word… Children of rag – Tableau of a fall unfolds a series of scenes about the epic story of the fallen man, and his acid desire to return. A story which, like a kind of dreamlike ritornello, maybe we already know, even if we have never heard of it.

Children of rag – Tableau of a fall, is a theatrical narration conceived by a team situated in Barcelona. Four actors from Mexico, Italy, Singapore and Catalonia. Children of rag – Tableau of a fall is presented under the umbrella of La Vella Fam, a platform where productions, research, exchanges and diffusion in the performing arts terrain take place.
