Manes

Next event:

​Theatre that spindries your mind and examines the human basics: birth, death, sex and food.

In Manes the Spanish ensemble La Fura dels Baus looks at basic human nature and attitudes.

This performance, physical and extreme, was first staged in 1996. In a motorised and technological society without dignity La Fura dels Baus sought to draw the viewer to perceive the animalistic and instinctive, the very essence of human existence. They are now staging the piece again because they believe that in today's society this shift of focus is once again necessary.

Without a linear story line several scenes are presented simultaneously: different worlds share time and space – and you, the audience, wander in their midst. It is impossible to remain passive in relation to what is happening in the room, both physically and mentally.

Manes is gothic in essence, free from superficial æsthetics, while the pillars of humanity – birth, death, sex and food – are in focus in a conglomeration of emotions and experiences. Intimacy and privacy are invaded and presented for all to see – everything that is usually kept concealed from public view for cultural reasons.

The unique, eccentric and innovative language, style and æsthetics of La Fura dels Baus have become eponymous in theatrical circles, bringing substantial international success and influence.
