Song to the memory
"Ana (It will also take us to forgetfulness)" is a song to memory, to memory, in which sharp reflections are raised about life and the vital renunciations to which she submits us to be accepted. a contemporary drama that helps us to understand many of the stigmas and conflicts that still continue to operate and agitating in a lethal way to contemporary Spanish society.
The text speaks of all those small victories of the women who preceded us, and also of all the doors that, like Nora and Tristana, we still have to cross, according to Correa, who has received several national awards, such as the Max Prize for Revelation Show for 'Desde lo Invisible', the 19th SGAE Theater Award for 'Friday', or the Replica Award for the Best Show for 'The Inhabited Seas'.
'Ana (also forgetting us will take us') is developed on a singular functional stage that modifies its planes according to the scenes. Their different degrees of inclination force the actors to make an added effort to their interpretation, which runs in a clean atmosphere in which the absence of props predominates, but which is endowed with a considerable conceptual burden.
The work directed by Mario Vega tells the story of Ana, a woman married to a ministerial official who awaits a desired promotion, which seems to vanish her limited world, until she meets Vivian, an enthusiastic French photographer with whom she initiates an intense relationship that will open new expectations in your life and renew the domestic pulse of your sharp days. Vivian will make her see that her life is not, by far, what she in the end craves. As the happy relationship between both women grows and strengthens, the abyss that separates Ana and her husband opens up further.
The production 'Ana (It will also take us to oblivion)' is included in the great project called 'Laboratorio Galdós', an initiative that takes place in the context of the wide program of the 'Galdosian Biennium' promoted between 2018 and 2020 by the Cabildo grancanario, articulated as an experimentation initiative that is developed with the participation of different stage agents (from playwrights to the public and schoolchildren, through scene directors and actors) and which pursues establish a transversal line of research around the contemporary performing arts.
