They explain from La Cubana that, as in their previous productions, in Goodbye Arturo "We talk about the same thing: theater". "From the theater of life: from the theater that we do in our daily life and that goes unnoticed as a theater, from that theater that people do on the street, in markets, in work, with family, with friendships. Those moments in which we unfold our interpretative skills by attending "paripés", parties, weddings, baptisms, communions and funerals.
On this occasion, they pose it from the death, at 101 years of age, of Arturo Cirera Mompou, a multi-faceted artist known internationally, born in Las Palmas in 1918, when his father of Catalan origin acted as family doctor in the city.
"Through their friends and family, the public will know the" true script "of the life of this writer, painter, sculptor, art collector, poet, musical composer, playwright, actor and director," they explain.
"We can not reveal more ... The secret and the surprise are the protagonists of the show and the public will discover it at the time." Say goodbye Arturo is a song to life and how to live it intensely, a Carpe Diem".
They say that Goodbye Arturo is a crazy comedy, with surreal touches and "seasoned with the things that characterize us and in the purest La Cubana style: with audience participation, surprises, music and lots of humor".
The show is written and directed by Jordi Milán and performed by Jaume Baucis, Xavi Tena, Toni Torres, Nuria Benet, Alex Gonzalez, Babeth Ripoll, Montse Amat, Toni Sans, Edu Ferrés and Virginia Melgar.
