Two boys and a girl spend hours playing at being Martians. The universe is part of their game, just as we are all part of the universe. But the time comes when their orbits part. Now they are adults, they haven’t seen one another for some time and their trajectories no longer cross. One day, the two boys receive a mysterious communication from their childhood girlfriend. She is about to realise the dream shared by the three of them: travelling to space for real. Of course, she doesn't want to go away and leave Earth behind without first saying goodbye to them.
This is a new production from Farrés Brothers i Cia., a theatre company that works with pieces of junk, gestures, words, dolls and untrammelled stories. Created in 2002, it is formed by Jordi Farrés, Pep Farrés and Jordi Palet, three artists offering us theatre for audiences of every kind, ironic, unsentimental and packed with many levels of meaning. They talk of powerful issues, from unusual points of view, in an original and non-moralising way. Comedy, excitement and complicity are the basis of shows such as La maleta de l’Agustí, El silenci d’Hamelín, La visita de la Vella Dama and Tripula, a production (premièred during the High Season in 2013 and present at the Grec 2014; winner of the 2016 Butaca Prize for best family show and the 2015 Fetén Prize) which opened the doors to the international market and brought them to countries such as France, Italy, Belgium the Netherlands, Great Britain, Lithuania, Switzerland, Germany and China.
A Grec 2020 Festival de Barcelona and Farrés Brothers i Cia co-production.
This show enjoys scientific support from the IEEC (Catalan Institute of Space Sciences).
