Cuculand Souvenir

Roberto Olivan merges dance and circus with visual arts in a large-scale performance that explores the impact of technological evolution in our daily life.

Seven performers on stage show small fragments of our daily lives. Isolated and independent stories, but with their own sense, as it happens with the daily posts we find on the walls of our digital worlds.

Visual stories that make up a mosaic of suggested images that invite the viewers to let go and connect the points under their own criterion, fleeing conventional linear dramaturgy.

Stories linked to technology in a kind of crazy land or cuckoo land where, ironically, our brilliance makes us at the same time owners and slaves of technological progress.

Stories that evoke a souvenir from past times, and that remind us that we never know what yesterday will be made of.

Beautiful cold stories played by the new generations who are usually judged for being superficial, when in fact they possess an extraordinary sensitivity.

Stories about change, advance and relapse, about the friction between an updated past and a future still to be built.
Stories about life’s complexity, simplicity and the absurd.
Stories that exhibit, but do not judge.
Stories that are part of our reality.
