PERE CALDERS - HUMOUR, SUBTLETY AND MAGIC

On October 7, at 20.00h the UA Paranimf will host Antaviana by Pere Calders and Dagoll Dagom, the latest montage by the UA Teatre Universitari. The work is the sixth play staged by this theatre group, and it counts on ‘a greater number of people than the previous ones, namely 20 actors and actresses, although the actual production involved around 30 people who participated in the various stages of the show. This year we have added live music and have counted on numerous collaborators, among whom Cesar Perez, who composed the original music for the play. Consequently, we can say that Teatre Universitari is entering a new stage of its development, thus consolidating itself’, explains Tomas Mestre, company director.

Antaviana is a montage done by Dagoll Dagom in the seventies and based on texts by Pere Calders, namely different sketches with a light touch of magic that gravitate around the author’s work. "It is a witty text, full of irony and subtle humour, with a variety of characters. For instance, in one of the sketches there is a garden which people visit in search for honesty and memory…and in the case of a thief, even for some missing papers", Mestre states.

The director highlights the fact that ‘the entire group has been involved in this project’, throughout the different stages of production, from poster to costumes. Following the premiere, the play will be performed at the University of Valencia (on October 27), and it will also take part in a theatre contest, Concurs de Teatre Vila de Mislata, one of the key events of amateur theatre in the province of Valencia. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this theatre group has won the third prize in another important contest, Alicante a Escena, for the previous montage – En cap cap cap.

Invitations available at Sala Aifos.
