Solfatara by ATRESBANDES (Spain)

What happens when your fear comes round for dinner, and your deepest, darkest thoughts refuse to lie low? ‘Solfatara’ – a term for the openings in volcanic terrain, which emit hot sulphuric gases. We humans are full of these geographical phenomena: orifices that allow our insides to come to the surface. A relentlessly inventive and hilarious play that brought the house down at BE 2012.

Devising company ATRESBANDES was founded four years ago by Albert Pérez Hidalgo, Miquel Segovia and Mónica Almirall in Barcelona. They work to discover and explore the contradictions of everyday life and share them with audiences in surprising ways.
