    Information

    Acotaciones tras la cuarta pared (Theatre Direction Behind the Fourth Wall), by Marla Jacarilla, is one of the projects selected for a solo exhibition in the Espai Cub at La Capella within the framework of BCN Producció 2013.

    Marla Jacarilla
    (Alcoy, Alicante, 1980) holds a BA in Fine Arts. She develops her work by means of various techniques such as writing, performance, short films and video installations, using them as a testing ground for creating stories. She constantly seeks out links between visual art, new technologies and literature, to develop a fragmented narrative, sprinkled with fiction, which the viewer is invited to reconstruct.

    Acotaciones tras la cuarta pared is a four-act play whose tone swings back and forth between the tragic, the comical, the farcical and the metalinguistic. A story in which a supposed demiurge engages in conversation with pre-existing characters, who belong to other plays but are moved to the present time.

    The proposal turns Espai Cub into an installation in which light, video and software programming produce a theatrical device through which the spectator will move to attend talks on issues somewhat linked to the situation we are currently experiencing. In turn, the project proposes a reflection upon the autonomy of the literary characters and the possible absence of the actor in their performance.
