“Bestiary”, adaptation from Juan José Arreola’s text.


Starting with a beginners acting workshop specially design for elder people by taking in account their specific Poetics, physical work and their own chronic and degenerative characteristics. The students worked with Arreola’s text both in paper and stage, thus adapting the narrative text into a drama. The starting point was Arreola’s original text and the adaptation process created a dramatic text with its own voice and soul.
