GOLD. PETROLEUM. FROST
WHAT IF I WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME PERSON?
It is our new challenge, a great piece which needs more work in relation to our previous creations, this is a qualitative production leap.
Since 2010, we have been working very hard on this new performing proposal, trying to gather our past, present and future in a polyhedral level. Our language will assemble numerous elements already treated in previous works developing the essential questions in order to find out some results, that we feel, should be our next stop. The premiere will be at 2012.
Due to current economic crisis, the performing arts are much more vulnerable. For this reason, we believe necessary a NEW WAY TO CREATE AND TO PRODUCE; and this is where YOU appear. This new way with PATRONS AND CROWDFUNDIG, opens the door to an interesting communication during this process. Your help will be a key factor and we will be able to do this project thanks to you. Also, some of the REWARDS which you will receive AS PATRON will be part of the creation process and this is so exciting for us. We hope that our project is interesting for you.
Gold. Petroleum. Frost. What if I would never be the same person? It is a beautiful story of science fiction.
It develops the old and new concept of human evolution. It reflects about who we were, who we are and who we will be. It sets out the old and new requirements on people's ethics and its immediate consequences. It shows that we live in a temporal world and perhaps, we are a result from evolution. The idea that we are here as a preamble to another life fades and launches a universal question:
Would mankind end in communion satisfactory with nature or, on the contrary, will nature end up devouring hopelessly mankind?
But Gold. Petroleum. Frost. What if I would never be the same person? is more than just a play. Due to its size, it is designed as a plant whose roots give rise exploring so many different formats.
y.s.y.n.v.a.s.l.m.p - 0.9.3 [Prologue]: It is a mysterious and virtual prologue (on internet: emails, facebook, youtube...) where it develops the preliminary ideas of the global project. We use it to experiment with audience, and audience may be disoriented, lost, and shows interest on something which is still unknown. Definitively it creates a discussion about the artistic proposal before its implementation on stage and without knowing whom it is really behind. Prologue Facebook // Prologue Videos
Gold. Petroleum. Frost. What if I would never be the same person? [The play]: Itis the axis of the global project. It also gives rise to two virtual and free appendages.
The G.P.F. Museum in www.vertebro.es: It is a place where it develops the peripheral topics of the play. There is also a field where the audience can interact, from anywhere around the world, before or after seeing the play.
Cd´s G.P.F: The audience will have access, on our website, to download the music used during the play as well as other sound material created for the project.
The echo of our evolution [Multiform epilogue]: It is an alternative play to show different project materials in a wider way where audience has the opportunity to give back their impressions and we collect these transforming them into new artistic material. We say "The Multiform". We will make use of different disciplines and artistic formats to continue developing the topics covered in the previous parts of the project.Definitively, this new project is an odyssey, which will lead to a way full of mysteries, an exciting way currently in process.
