Sold out tickets
This family theatre show seen for the first time at the Grec Festival de Barcelona brings together an innovative company and two exceptional stage creators.

La Ruta 40, an independent company that has created a dozen shows since it was founded in 2011 and has often worked with other directors, performers and creators, has proposed a collaboration with two artists targeted at younger audiences which combines text theatre, object theatre and music. Wood is the main element of this show, in which two pairs of hands move pieces around the space, making landscapes, stories, games, questions, images, numbers and words appear. On this imaginary journey, performers and spectators will share questions about how the world around them works, accompanying the constant discovery process involved in growing up.

The show is a joint creation by the company La Ruta 40 and a stage group comprised of Alberto Díaz, Maria G. Rovelló, Albert Prat and Sergi Torrecilla that work with both text works and creative projects. They are joined by Pau Matas Nogué, a playwright who has written pieces like Travy, in addition to working with sound and music. As a passionate fan of the poetics of objects, Xavier Bobés will also be there. He’s an old friend of the festival who in this year’s edition is reviving older projects while also sharing his latest work.

A co-production of La Ruta 40, the Grec 2024 Festival de Barcelona and the Teatre de Lloret.

Show recommended for children over the age of 5

The show forms part of a series that the Grec 2024 Festival de Barcelona is dedicating to the creator Xavier Bobés.

With the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Catalonia.

Winner of Viu el Teatre's 2024 Mans Grant.
