Katastrophe, an experimental theatre play

Four performers, eleven scaled models and hundreds of gummy bears create the world of Katastrophe: a stupid fable about human civilization, focused on disasters. In this context, the gummy bears suffer earthquakes, oil spills, wars and extermination. Everything is performed live through chemical and physical experiments developed by la Mandarina de Newton. Around the stage, three large screens immerse the audience in this pop world of chaos, game and destruction.

Katastrophe questions the difference between a natural catastrophe, a ‘natural’ catastrophe caused by man and a human catastrophe. Are deaths provoqued by a tsunami comparable to those caused by a radioactive leak, or to those produced by an atomic bomb?

Katastrophe is nourished by the performing language that defines Agrupación Señor Serrano: performance, dance, physical theater, video in scene and interactive technologies.

This is an Agrupación Señor Serrano and Festival Hybrides de Montpellier production that counts with the collaboration and support of the Consell Nacional de la Cultura i de les Arts de la Generalitat de Catalunya (CoNCA), Centre National des Écritures du Spectacle (Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, France), the Stalker Teatro (Torino, Italy), the Programme Odyssée – ACCR (Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, France) and the Sala Beckett (Barcelona), l’Estruch de Sabadell, Institut Ramon Llull and la Mandarina de Newton.
