Com els pingüins
Residency April – November 2023
Com els pingüins of La Bleda is a co-production of El Canal. The piece is a dramatic comedy based on real events and starts from the personal experience of the creator, Helena Escobar, actress and clown.
Doctors, hospitals, operations. They are words that scare us or that we don’t like. But we are lucky because they help us live. Com els pingüins we will see someone who, thanks to doctors, hospitals, operations and her survival instinct, finds her particular way of relating to the world.
With this work, the company makes a change in its way of doing things. In a risky and personal proposal, she shares with the public his multiple vicissitudes between scalpels and operating theaters to tell us something that really happened to her. And he will do it, as always, from humor, because laughing at ourselves is the best medicine.
