Orphan Europe, a physical show dialoguing with history to reflect our age dancing as training itself states, “the poetic and wild nature of humanity”.
On May 26, 1828 a young stranger who could barely stand appeared as from nowhere in a square in Nuremberg. The boy, who just carried an anonymous letter with some conflicting data on its origin, was welcomed immediately in the city and throughout the country, as a social, political and philosophical experiment. At six weeks he spoke with some fluency and could read and write. It was learned by himself who had lived in a dungeon and, so far being found, he had never seen any human being.
The leader of la Phármaco company explains his creation “in the dance of Kaspar Hauser, the engine movement is always tragic: imagine the peculiarity of their textures, born of an extreme hypersensitivity, a physical reaction, anatomical, against the real (Kaspar not bear the light, I could see in the dark, he perceived the magnetic force of metals, animals and people and hurt most aromas, sounds and tastes). ”
But Kaspar Hauser embodies the natural conflict with “the other”, is dancing the relentless violence of the world with the unspoiled nature of “the orphan of Europe”, as they called the media of his time. The premiere of Kaspar Hauser, the orphan of Europe, will take place in the Sala Negra of the Teatros del Canal in March, under the XXXIII Festival De Otoño a Primavera.
