PALAPHITA 
 
 
The new creation from Company PIA, a performance inspired by the stilt houses, their fishing communities and storytellers, inviting the public on a journey through the life of a fisherman in search of his place, through port, land, river and sea.
In PALAPHITA, the body gives voice to history in a universe caricatured by the disproportion and gigantism of the animated forms, assuming the chameleonic role of the manipulator/actor that brings them to life.
 
 
SYNOPSIS
In a symbolic place, on the margin between the real and the imaginary, emerges stilts houses suspended between wooden legs and temporary bandages, conceiving a port, propelling the crossings to those who give body and soul to the illusion forms of humanity.
