INSECTOTROPICS:THE LEGEND OF THE BURNING MAN
Sat 14 July, 9.45pm
(We recommend that this isn’t suitable for anyone under the age of 14)
Burning Man is Mohamed Bouazizi. A young street vendor who, asphyxiated by his economic context and the police mistreatment he suffered, burned publicly. The unexpected and overwhelming blast wave that caused his gesture turned Bouazizi into a myth for millions of people, propitiating “the Arab Spring.”
Insectotròpics recreates the use of this tragic and brutal death. Video art, painting, theatre, live music and performance merge into a brutal and explosive multimedia show that must be seen in action through its 360° stage. You see the action from all possible angles, just as in reality, or a viral piece of news on the net.
The Legend of Burning Man It is a poetic journey, based on real events, where the company does a review of an old show, “Bouazizi”, premiered and co-produced by Fira Tarrega and the TNT Festival in 2013 and updated in 2017 under a new look with the artistic collaboration of David Climent from loscorderos.sc
To answer a big question of our time: If we are all on the web, who is the spider?
