LaBú Theatre – Bianco (ES)
A visual poetry show for everyone
Bianco tells the story of a girl working in an old guesthouse that one day receives a charming traveller who invites her to open the doors and windows of her heart. A special encounter that will lead our main character to a new way of understanding life.
Accepting the changes in our lives, how these changes –however big or small– shape us, how we deal with them and approach them in the most appropriate manner, the end of a memory, the need to let go in order to evolve as human beings, the loss of someone or something we love… These are universal values that, very often in our society, go unnoticed. From LaBú Theatre, we seek to express them from a visual, comical and poetic scenic language.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
LaBú Theatre is a contemporary performing arts creation and research project on the dramaturgy of the object, atmospheres and visual landscapes, using ordinary materials turning them into something extraordinary.
LaBú esthetics lie in its unique language made of textures, plasticity and music that create living pictures suggesting lightness and freedom for all audiences.
LaBú’s creative core is the result of 15 years of experience and the joint artistic efforts of co-creators Anna Ros and Andreu Sans in Barcelona, London and Paris. Both have developed several techniques such as body mime by French master Étienne Decroux, with Theatre de L’Ange Fou in London, and at the Compagnie de Philippe Genty, in Paris.
LaBú’s first show, Bianco, has received, during its first year, the Best Performance Award at the International Theatre Festival FITC in Bucharest, Romania. It has also been staged at the European Performing Arts Fair for Children, in Gijon, Spain; at the Mostra d’Igualada Fair, in Catalonia, as well as in France, the Czech Republic, Romania and Italy.
Together with their scenic work, LaBú use their own language to put forward visual poetry creation workshops and support the mise-en-scene of other artistic projects.
