Mi gran obra/My Great Work

Mi gran obra is what I would do if I had an unlimited budget, the largest theatre in the world, 300 actors on stage, a military orchestra, a rock band, animals, cars and a helicopter. My Great Work is a utopia. The reality in which I create is characterized by precariousness and lack of means, and this precisely has always been the focus of My Great Work.

In Mi gran obra we are staging a large-scale show, sparing no expense, developing all the ideas, using all the material and working with an unlimited artistic team. All this with a slight drawback: a scale. Thinking big but doing small. The result is a show playing with different non-conventional narratives. It is a portrait of the society in which we live. It contains metaphors that each viewer can interpret in their own way.
