Marco Michelângelo and Martí Güell are the authors, directors and performers of La isla flotante.
From September 23 to 27, La Babadoc will be hosting a new proposal that mixes music, theatre and dance. Its name is La isla flotante, and it's a production made almost entirely by two people, Marco Michelângelo and Martí Güell – as its authors, directors and performers, and Michelângelo also wrote the musical composition.
During the 50-minute performance, the lead characters transport the audience to a tiny island, where a concert to vindicate this land that is disappearing takes place. They make the concert part of a revengeful and fatalistic act. The only two inhabitants of the island are a sheriff and a boxer. Through dance and music, new scenarios and stories open up, and other characters appear on a journey through different sonorities. Ultimately, the plot of the narrative, as well as the combination of the different performing disciplines, wants to reflect on the power and boundaries of art and on the many possibilities of artistic creation.
La isla flotante is a musical production by Martí Güell and Teatro de Açúcar, a company founded in 2007 that is also a centre for investigation and production of shows with original dramaturgy and intense interpretative work. Güell exposes his topics in a comical and musical manner by exploring human complexity in a biographical yet universal way.
