Event description

Description

We are very excited to announce our brand new festival commission by Sònia Gardes for 2017. Never before seen, this work has been developed for VSF 2017 and we are thrilled to present it.

When political disagreements with her whole family became the centre of her life, Sònia started wondering about that mysterious figure in the story of the family who had gone on exile 80 years ago and who nobody talks about.

Did he go through the same isolation? Would he argue with her as well? Would he be the political and emotional support she is lacking if he was alive? What happened to his beliefs and to the others who thought the same as him? Can you kill an idea?

Breaking the silence built around the patriarch of her family, Sònia starts a journey inside the anarchist movement of the Spanish Civil War, and dives in a sea of old photos, objects, and answers that awake more questions, trying to establish this intergenerational conversation that never could happen.

Suitable for ages 12+

**BSL Interpreted**
