Double Infinite. The Bluebird Call
Residency May 2023
The Mal Pelo Company has stayed at El Canal in residence for the creation of its new show Double Infinite. The Bluebird Call, a duet by Pep Ramis and María Muñoz that returns to an intimate format. It is a piece made from fragility, simplicity and love for a craft that continues to question identity, the individual, the group or the body, the great revealer of one’s powers.
Two people close to the age of sixty find themselves willing to wonder about what remains to be imagined and propose a sensitive journey through the doubts about how we build our lives, our relationships and our place. The project contemplates the need to imagine and pursue impossible realities, to build a fiction that demonstrates the importance of inventing the future, to project it beyond what is predictable.
In their artistic career, Ramis and Muñoz have worked with different collaborators and artists. In Double Infinite. The Bluebird Call the company continues to make creation a shared process with collaborators such as Leo Castro (collaboration in direction and video), Fanny Thollot (sound composition), Carme Puigdevall i Plantés (costumes), or August Viladomat and Lluís Martí (lighting), among others.

The Bluebird Call is a co-production of the Théâtre de la Ville de Paris, Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, GREC Festival de Barcelona, Teatre Principal de Palma de Mallorca and Temporada Alta.
