This show is dessigned to be represented with direct contact with the public, whether if it is oudoors, indoors or without a stage. The proximity and the comunication with the characters is such developped that they could even be touched.
Every movement, every glance, every step from this puppets are considered with a deep presition. The aim to seduce the public, and getting them to think that the life that there is inside them is real and their flosses are mere fiction.
From puppets with a perfect contruction linked to long years of work in the manipulation an interpretation with the floss technique, big doses of poetry can be obtained, with the capability to create highly emoted sentiments to the public.
This is an experimental work which carries us to think about forgotten landscapes, where our oniric memories from our origins inhabit.

ACTUACIÓ

Espai Cultural “Les Faixes”

3 de setembre- 21:30 hores

Reposem per tercer cop aquest espectacle, pel gran èxit que va tenir en altres edicions del Festival.
A l’escenari prenen vida un conjunt de lletres construïdes amb senzillesa, que requereixen de gran mestria per aconseguir que, amb la seva manipulació, el gest es transformi en vers i el vers en emoció. Un espectacle
visual en el que la música en viu, el moviment, els petits conflictes i la poètica del gest són els fils que cohesionen un espectacle de gran nivell, reconegut internacionalment.

Poemes Visuals, és un espectacle generós, ple de tendresa, que omple cada racó de l’escena d’un virtuosisme inusual, fruit d’anys de treball. A l’escenari prenen vida un conjunt de lletres construïdes amb senzillesa, que requereixen de gran mestria per a aconseguir que, amb la seva manipulació, el gest se transformi en vers i el vers en emoció.

L’espectacle s’inspira en la màgia dels poemes visuals del poeta català Joan Brossa, prenent en préstec el magnetisme de l’abecedari brossià, el joc de lletres amb el que el poeta il•lustrava la seva poètica visual.

In 1990, the Barcelona based puppeteer Jordi Bertran and his collaborators began the creation of a show inspired by the world of the poet Joan Brossa. With just a few simple balls and foam-rubber letters, he created a show that today continues to amaze audiences around the world.

Thirty years later, Bertran recuperates these objects to create a new visual theatre production, Power Point. With only his hands and accompanied by a guitar he brings to life a succession of theatrically rich characters, sometimes comic, sometimes contradictory, always tender.

“Jugando con el lenguaje sin palabras”

"Jugando con el lenguaje sin palabras"

03/01/2018
Per Fernando Solla

La Seca Espai Brossa retoma el espectáculo Poemes visuals, una pieza muy cercana a las rapsodias sin vocablos de Joan Brossa. Un juego mucho más sensible de lo que pueda parecer a simple vista, nunca mejor dicho, y que lleva desde 1994 dando vueltas por el mundo.

Lo que más llama la atención de la propuesta de Jordi Bertran, autor y director de la pieza, es que la ternura que se desprende hacia un oficio y hacia un lenguaje, eminentemente comunicativo, no está reñida con la generosidad de registros. En un mundo en el que cada vez nos cuesta más prestar atención para escuchar, más incluso para fijar la mirada, el ideal didáctico de estos Poemes visuals resulta su mayor virtud. Eso se consigue gracias al dominio del tiempo y el ritmo que todos los implicados en el desarrollo de la propuesta han sabido insuflar.

Tres intérpretes (marionetistas y manipuladores) son los encargados de que la creación de este mundo de significación tan particular acontezca ante nuestros ojos con aparente sencillez. Aunque el cómo es aquí tan importante como el qué resulta imprescindible que el plano perceptivo priorice en el contenido. Lo mejor que se puede decir de todos los artistas que desarrollan este espectáculo es que parecen desaparecer tras su creaciones, dando vida a algo que, por otro lado, sin ellos y su buen hacer sería imposible. Tanto Miquel Nevado como Isabel Martinez y Pau Murner, que alternan funciones con Eduardo Telletxea y el propio Bertran, dominan ese oficio de hacer tangible lo invisible, imposible e inanimado.

Una interpretación con todas las de la ley, totalmente adecuada al formato y contenido de lo que se quiere explicar. Un gran dominio del material de espuma en forma de letras y figuras esféricas que sabe utilizarse tanto para crear las imágenes buscadas como potentes metáforas y alegorías. Esferas que pueden ser cabezas continentes del pensamiento e imaginación sublimados artísticamente. La focalización en la mesa de trabajo es también muy importante, ya que consigue que fijemos la mirada en lo verdaderamente importante. Mención especial para el dominio vocal (para crear sonidos de instrumentos y distintas onomatopeyas) de los tres protagonistas, especialmente de Nevado.

De cara al público infantil, también nos encontramos ante un espectáculo muy a tener en cuenta. Resulta complicado encontrar propuestas que no vayan directamente dirigida a los más pequeños pero que los incluya y los abrace de un modo tan significativo como aquí. Si los más jóvenes se acostumbran a mirar a las artes escénicas como una entrada al mundo de los adultos, a la vez acceso y algo nuevo que descubrir, estamos creando al público del futuro. En presente. Quizá no se trate de buscar un lenguaje especial y propio para ellos, sino de ofrecerles las herramientas básicas y necesarias para que entren a formar parte de este universo tan alegórico como participativo y comunicativo e incluirlos de pleno. En este terreno, la labor de la Companyia Jordi Bertran es muy valiosa.

Finalmente, Poemes visuals se convierte en una buena oportunidad para reflexionar sobre la validez del lenguaje visual en el ámbito escénico. En un terreno donde está claramente establecido que la palabra es la herramienta básica e indispensable, propuestas como la que nos ocupa demuestran que no hay una única vía de aproximación y que las artes escénicas mantienen un espacio privilegiado para el teatro visual. Y la aportación de Jordi Bertran es un buen reflejo de ello.
