*“So we turn
unhappy children, distracted, disobedient,
always eager to take refuge
in ourselves. And if you had to suffer, we will suffer too ?”*
"The letter to my father", by Franz Kafka
“La máquina del tiempo” is the free stage adaptation of the autobiographical graphic novel artist Aitor Saraiba. An intense story that shows that we can tell the complexity of life in a few words, mixed with strong fantasy of his drawings. Fears, hopes, fantasies, ghosts, family, love, forgiveness and distance, narrated by a desperate man in search of his place in the world.
We founded the company in 2012. Its members live in the world of theater for over 10 years. We have already produced Furia 2.0 and the gods inherited and we are behind other cultural initiatives such as GEA cooperative. We instinctively created the Furia Teatro: we need to tell stories. We question, we seek, we play and we tell. It's so easy, when you receive such a story: you can not pass up such an opportunity, you know you have to tell it.
Like almost all good things, it starts with a party and, in this case, at Aitor’s. Some months ago, Aitor came to see our previous piece Furia 2.0 and he proposed me spontaneously: "Hey, why do not we do something together? Once the « fan effect » had gone and as we were eating a piece of cheese and drinking a coke, we determined a starting point : a vague intuition. After letting it settled for a whole summer, the improvisations began and we worked around a common fantasy, own language offered by the spaces created by Aitor drawings that now surround us. Everything is easier now. Our instinct tells us that we need to tell something different: what would happen if we were to meet face to face with the fear? We focus our energy on our primitive instincts and we take all the text that we have. Now yes. We have given birth to a creature. How beautiful is a job well done.
