Zero en Conducta Co. (ESP)
Brigittes last dance
Wednesday, 13 March 2019 | 7:30 PM
Duration: 55 minutes
Brigitte is so old that her memories are in black and white. If you ask her how old she is, she will say too many years and a few more. So many that in her youth colour did not exist. Brigitte lives in her chair, a chair that she built by herself, based on her memories. Immobile memories that were and have stopped being. Moments of life she has treasured and which lost their soul.
But today it’s different. Today is an important day, maybe the most important. Today Brigitte is leaving forever. But not by any manner: Brigitte wants to leave flying. Of course somebody who can’t longer walk has only one way to fly: with the help of his memory.

About the group:
LA DERNIÈRE DANSE DE BRIGITTE is the third piece of Zero En Conducta – Theatre of Movement. Staying true to the company language, this new project explores also other ways of movement and gets the most out of the expressive and poetic potential of the mime and of the puppets theatre. Using direct manipulation, objects manipulation, body puppets, dance and mime theatre, the company manages to tell us the unusual story of Brigitte.
