*I had everything in la Bisbal, a quiet and easy life. I think that was happiness.
But it wasn't until I arrived to Barcelona and with the Civil War that I understood what loneliness was like. I felt my life slip trough my fingers. I leave my story written because I deserve the truth to be known and now... I can't explain it anymore.*
*Help us to be on stage
Help us to light this story
Help us to accompany it with live music
Help us to bring it to live
With you... we'll make it possible*
Ara (Now): An original theatre play based on a true story.
From the union of two real stories, different and coming from very opposite people, the idea of Now came out.
Now narrates Teresa Carreres’ life, born in La Bisbal d’Empordà (Girona, Spain) in 1920. It’s a story that shows itself with all the tenderness, touch, suffering and truth of difficult and dangerous times, written with fire in our memories. It’s a story of love, loss, friendship, impotence, power and hope. The theatre project Now combines audiovisual elements with original live music.
Teresa’s life, with all its details, was only known by her and would have died with her, only with her... until Now.
After months of work, creation and a first small audience contact, Now will be on stage on 24th January at Teatre Principal d'Olot (Girona, Spain) and on 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th of March at Nau Ivanow of Barcelona (Spain)
