The Bacelona-based physical theatre company Los Escultores del Aires will perform their work La Caja (The Box) at Teatro Latea in Manhattan, and at Jersey City Theater Center as part of International Voices Theater Festival.
Not just a theatre production and performance, La Caja (The Box) is a journey of the senses where through physical theatre, dance and live music audiences will face their fear, their fury, but also love and hope.
A group of doctors and medical assistant try to find a cure for Martinez, who suffers from a rare psychic disorder. As days pass, the patient travels deeper into an imaginary world, making the border separating reality and fiction more and more ambiguous as box containing the cure for evil is discovered. But what is inside the box and why is it so hard to open?
La Caja is produced by Los Escultores del Aire, an international company based in Barcelona, known for using Corporeal Mime as the basis for creation, adding other theatrical arts such as circus spectacles, dance and movement and object manipulation. The company has toured Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Macedonia, Poland, Sweden, Morocco, Colombia, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica.
