Festival BAD, Theater and Contemporary Dance Festival of Bilbao
2010 - 2011


For 4 days, 4 actors and actresses, 8 hours and 3 videocameras.

An objective: The creation of a single scene made up from a series of guidelines, which will be discovered by the four performers day by day.

An open creation process, where the audience has two choices: either to attend the show live or to watch it on-line.

The video-graphic material obtained during those 4 days will take part in the audiovisual piece that will follow. All the elements and people that take part in the working team will have an active role.

The Perils of obedience is a project of multidisciplinary creation with a clear experimental and evolving character. The project, based on the dialogue between film and scenic-theatre languages, explores the human need for creating rules in order to organize every social group and thus the reality around us.

The project originated with the purpose of being performed in different venues and with different groups. It started  in Bilbao as The Perils of obedience (-1) and then it will continue in New York and Madrid.
