'La Marea. Y los peces salieron a combatir contra los hombres': a play by UA's Theatre Club

Alicante, 27 April 2016

La Marea, Aula Teatro UAWithin the framework of UA’s own artistic production, the UA Theatre Club will be performing stage play La marea. Y los peces salieron a combatir contra los hombres (directed by Iván Jiménez) at the Auditorium.

"Immigrants are normal people just like you and me". This is the idea that Iván Jiménez wants to share concerning the pressing crisis of refugees and immigration in general that is currently happening in Europe. The theatrical production process itself has already been focused on that goal: besides building upon several texts by Angélica Liddell, the project has also been based on real experiences told by 5 Syrian and Senegalese immigrants who now live in Alicante. One of them is a UA student, another works in a restaurant and the rest are roommates. They shared their experiences with the director and the Theatre Club students, and inspired the scenes that will be soon performed at the Auditorium.

Jiménez also stresses that the staging phase has been really challenging for his students. The play was not based on an already-written text, so it had to be created from scratch. For the scriptwriters, looking inside themselves was just as important as taking in the reality outside. Finally, after a touching dress rehearsal in front of the stories’ protagonists, the students knew that all their sacrifice had been worth it.

Religious aspects have also been taken into account by gathering first-hand information, so the documentary stage play is as realistic and respectful as possible.

La marea. Y los peces salieron a combatir contra los hombres is a must-see play. The intense, committed, and heartfelt work of the Theatre Club has to be seen and does not deserve to lay low. Do not miss the premiere next Thursday, 17 May, at 8 p.m. in the Auditorium!

Entrance is free by invitation, which can be retrieved at the cultural information point of the University of Alicante Museum (MUA).

La Marea. Y los peces salieron a combatir contra los hombres

Directed by IVÁN JIMÉNEZ
A stage play of collective production with texts by Angélica Liddell.
Language: Spanish and Valencian.

La Marea. Y los peces salieron a combatir contra los hombres

About wars and poverty, about Syria and Senegal:
two stories and two families that represent thousands of them.

After all, migrations never cease to be an issue:
the issue of immigrants and refugees,
the issue of residents and hosts,
the issue of so many people who drowned in raft boats and uncertainty,
the issue of hope and those deafening, wet silences.

La Marea is both the origin and the destination of the most difficult journey,
a journey we have never dared to let under our skin:
a journey where Europe is the destination, narrated through texts by Angélica Liddell.
Syria and Senegal, the beginning of a collective compound of ink, sweat 
and tears.

A wake-up call, a message in a bottle we hope
will be washed ashore the right beach before it is too late.
