“Yo no soy Camille Claudel”
It is a theatrical project that starts from the life of the sculptor Camille Claudel and the fear of suffering an identical end: madness and loneliness.
From this engine is created a text where several characters question their creator, a writer in the midst of existential crisis. In one way or another, the text tries to respond to the anguish that means to see obsolete all those universal values for which we have fought and which apparently have no place in our time.
The staging proposes a journey between the symbolic and the realistic, an atmosphere that represents the internal world of the protagonist: his head. In it, the characters created by the writer will come into play, configuring an oniric language that mixes its harsh reality and the desires of the characters independently of it.
It is not a realistic montage, but it is articulated according to the events that occurred in a non-linear time, in which these events and their subsequent consequences are mixed in the destiny of the main character.
This project seeks a scenic proposal in which the set design will place the viewer in an abstract and timeless space, where each object will be a function of the story and its characters.
We are two crazy people united by the same dream: the theater. We have joined our efforts in this new creative project: “Yo no soy Camille Claudel”. We know that how any good project will involve a great risk and a great challenge, but we are also aware that we have our training and experience in the theater (more than 20 years). Even so, we need your support and help in this project, to make this dream come true.
