De Tiburones y otras Rémoras
10 EUROS - ON THE DOOR
On its second tour of Spain, the Argentine El Vacío Fértil Compañía Teatral presents the play 'De tiburones y otros remoras', by Sergio Villanueva, under the direction of Marina Wainer.
In a social context in which layoffs are the order of the day and with a financial sea ready for anything, a bank employee is interviewed by her superior to assess her ability and willingness to sell Preferred Shares. Concerned with maintaining its economic stability, they must test the limits of their morale.
The Human factor is a distinctive feature of the preferred scam. The client's profile was chosen perversely, among the scammed: elderly, illiterate and sick. And although the slogan came down from the heights of the great powers, the hand that rocked the swindle and closed the deal with the victim was that of a known person who, using his trust, had the stomach to hold his gaze at the same time as he recommended that he invest in his own ruin. Moral: (The moral is written by citizens with our votes).
Unfortunately, many countries suffer from their 'custom preference'. So what can the theatre contribute, beyond the news? Making a text like the one Sergio Villanueva proposes, dictated by the crudest news, is a challenge for any creator.
The company exhibits this work with haunting brilliance and invites the audience to a debate talk after the show. In Spain, together with professionals from ADICAE, an association for consumer protection that actively participates during the preferred scandal nowadays.
