Agrupación Señor Serrano (Spain)
The Mountain blends the first expedition to Mount Everest, which success is still uncertain today; Orson Welles sowing panic with his radio show The War of the Worlds; badminton players playing baseball; a fake news website; a drone scrutinizing the audience; lots of snow; mobile screens; fragmented images; and Vladimir Putin discoursing delighted on truth and trust.
There is a widely shared image that runs through the history of ideas: climbing a mountain, overcoming all the difficulties to reach its summit and once there, being able to see the world “as it is”. See the truth and not just shadows or reflections. It is a beautiful image indeed. But is it really so? Often, looking from the top down you can see nothing but clouds and fog covering everything or a landscape that changes depending on the time of day or the weather. What is that world like then?
Agrupación Señor Serrano is a theatre company based in Barcelona that creates original productions about discordant aspects of today’s human experience. Señor Serrano’s shows blend live feed video, scale models, text, performance, sound and objects. The company productions premiere and tour internationally.
At present, the core of Agrupación Señor Serrano is composed by Àlex Serrano (President of the Republic), Pau Palacios (Prime Minister) and Barbara Bloin (Chief of Staff). Besides them, for each production the company counts on the essential collaboration of a cross-disciplinary and variable creative team.
