Ponten Pie (Spain) |
Loo is a strong, hot and dry wind that runs on summer evenings from the West Inda-Gangenic Plain. Loo, apart from being a name of a wind, is the name of our protagonist, the personification of the wind. The performance shows a vision of the hard work to push the sand dunes across the dessert, devastating wetlands, seas and oceans that are in its path, leaving ships paralysed adits a sea of sand, forever eliminating its ability to sail.
Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects to give its audience a first-hand experience of the destructive effect of this wind.
Loo is a play of great visual power and minimalism, where the plasticity evokes unprecedented images of the desert and its formations.
Ponten Pie is a company founded and directed by the actor Sergi Ots. Ponten Pie’s goal is to create unusual performances and stagings, reaching out for the audience by directly involving them into the story. In Ponten Pie’s projects different theater disciplines combine and speak through a new theatrical language.
