PERFORMANCE MUNICIPAL by Vicente Arlandis (Spain, 30 min)

A playful dialogue testing the limits of language. Watching an extended conversation between the show’s two characters, this piece gently probes the way we communicate with one another. Beginning with exchanges of simple noises and sound, the two characters move to phrases which are stated, repeated and re-formed. Speaking a mixture of Spanish and English, it aids the increasingly blurred sense of language. Turning words and idioms on their head, it’s a comical window into our everyday idiosyncrasies. Founding Valencia’s LOSQUEQUEDAN company in 2001, this show reflects director-performer Vicente Arlandis’ wider interests in visual arts and philosophy.
