With Birdie, presented during the REf17, the Catalan Agrupación Señor Serrano theatre company showed how cinema, collective imagination and media are useful instruments in interpreting reality and manipulating its narratives.
With Kingdom, the company composed of Àlex Serrano, Pau Palacios and Ferran Dordal brings the myth of King Kong to life, suggesting the identification between the capitalist and patriarchal model and the famous monster born of Hollywood. In the form of a mockumentary forged in real time, Kingdom exposes the mechanisms that operate within the economic and social model of the Western world and that lead to cyclical crises.

 

If the construction of this scene, suspended between real and virtual, takes place through images filmed and manipulated digitally, with music and lyrics, the company doubles the number of cards on the table and develops its dramaturgical and aesthetic study by presenting a more complex device capable of collating multiple objects, numerous performers, numerous musicians and numerous dancers. In short, a multitude of glimpses on the complexity and criticality of the present.
