The Cuyás Theater will soon host two functions of Proyecto Fausto, a proposal with a strong Canarian character from the Delirium Teatro from Tenerife, which celebrates 35 years on stage. The assembly, which was presented Thursday by its director, Severiano García Noda, and by the author of the text, the palm tree Antonio Tabares, together with the artistic director of Cuyás, Gonzalo Ubani, is based on a true story: the mysterious disappearance of a ship that, in 1968, covered the route between El Hierro and La Palma with three fishermen and a passenger on board.
In this case, the story is told through the voice of four women (Irene Álvarez, Lioba Herrera, Carmen Hernández and Soraya González del Rosario) condemned to the loneliness of those who wait, to the anguish of not knowing the truth and pain of the loss They are the women of the Faust whose same feelings live today thousands, even millions, of human beings throughout the world.
The work, in which the accordionist Pablo González Pérez collaborates, is performed on January 17 and 18 at 8:30 p.m. It has five 2018 Replica Awards, awarded by the Association of Performing Arts Companies of the Canary Islands, in the categories of Best Theater Text, Best Direction, Best Actress, Better Scenic Space and Better Lighting.
As explained by those responsible, the origin of the project is at sea. “We were looking for stories of the sea for a long time. The ocean as a condition of insular character, but at the same time as a vehicle to address issues such as emigration, exile or uprooting,” said Tabares.
