Lali Symon

Sergi Belbel

Teatre Romea 01/07 - 30/07

Emma Vilarasau demonstrates her acting skills in this tribute to the art of monologue. A show that combines comedy and tragedy. Do we really know the great stars? Do our idols show themselves as they are?

Lali is a big star, loved by her audience. She isn't exactly an actress, but rather a comedian. A monologuist, to put it more precisely. Her funny, ironic and heart-wrenching shows delight female audiences in theatres and on television.

What no one knows is the real personality and private life of the star, Lali Symon. And many people wonder whether this person - ever cheerful, witty, direct and uninhibited in front of an audience - is the same on and off stage.

We will thus see that, when the spotlights go out and she leaves the "public" eye of her monologues, she transforms into another person (or could we say another "character"?). In this space, she has a special and very intense relationship with two women who are decisive in her "private" life: her mother and her daughter, both of whom she has always kept on the fringes of her profession.

From that point forward, comedy and tragedy alternate in both spaces - the public and the private - through increasingly communicative channels.  Fiction and reality end up intertwined in a way that make them nearly indistinguishable.
