L’últim dia [The last day]

Lluïsa Cunillé / Xavier Albertí

Sala Àtrium   10/07 - 28/07

Used and abandoned. This is how the main character in this story feels as he tells about one day in his existence. He represents an entire generation, in one of the latest creations by one of the Catalan authors with the most solid career.

In one of her most famous works, Après moi, le déluge, an unusual personal portrait of the relationship between the first and third worlds, the playwright Lluïsa Cunillé split the narrator's voice, entering and leaving the character. Now she is using the same technique in this text, a recent work that is equal parts raw and poetic, to portray a day in the life of a boy. In this monologue, the main character talks about the way he is treated by his grandfather, mother, brother and friends, in a gradation that ranges from neglect to abuse. With his testimony, he represents an entire generation who feel lost and abandoned and have encountered a world they don't like.

Born in Badalona in 1961, Lluïsa Cunillé trained with José Sanchis Sinisterra at the Sala Beckett in the 1990s. In 2005, she won the City of Barcelona award for her play Barcelona, mapa d’ombres, and two years later she won the National Culture Award in theatre for La cantant calba al McDonald’s. That same year, she published the aforementioned Après moi, le déluge. She has written the plays Assajant Pitarra and El duo de la africana (2007) with the director of this show, Xavier Albertí, and shares a company with him called La Reina de la Nit. Lluïsa Cunillé has presented Jòquer and Libración (both in 1994), in addition to La venda (1997) and La cita (1999) at the Grec, along with El carrer Franklin (2015) at the TNC, for which she was a finalist in the Max awards.

Produced by Atrium Produccions.
