Las Palmas De Gran Canaria (EFE).- The Noviembre Teatro company, directed by Eduardo Vasco, offers this Friday and Saturday at the Cuyás Theater in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria “a very contemporary rogue polyamory comedy” that covers the work of Rojas Zorrilla’s classical theater «Open your eye».
This is how Vasco has defined this theatrical production, whose artistic cast is dressed by the well-known designer Lorenzo Caprile, who on this occasion has opted for experimentation by using surprising materials that look like fabric but are not.
The former director of the National Classical Theater Company considered at a press conference that the Cuyás is one of the most vital theaters in the country and estimated that the box office sales success of this work responds to this “bet for the word and the actor in a comedy very different from that of usual baroque authors due to the rogue of its argument, very daring to be from the 17th century».
The staging of this “overflowing” comedy takes place on a revolving stage, “very German-style.”
The actress Elena Rayos, who plays a prostitute, Mrs. Clara, has recounted that her character is very clear that she wants to live from men, from what she can get from them, for which she does not hesitate to use her women’s weapons.
Although she has Don Clemente, Doña Clara, as a lover, the course of this story will make the viewer see that her characters are not moved by honor and honor, since “what reigns in her is the free and shameless love that they maintain between Yes, some real cheeks, characters who live up to date financially and emotionally, giving rise to a true vaudeville ».
For this reason, Vasco warns the public that they must keep an eye out to be aware of any deception by those who claim to come in the name of love, since all the characters in this comedy have something to hide, so that, in the end, it is not known. who loves whom, according to Rayos.
For the actress, this version of the work by Rojas Zorrilla, considered one of the most interesting authors of the Spanish Golden Age, claims that “we all have the same desires and feel like the same thing.”
Also alert, Vasco added, that “in matters of love, never trust anyone because they are going to deceive you.”
Both the artistic director of Cuyás, Gonzalo Ubani, and the Councilor for Culture of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Guacimara Medina, have celebrated that the theater has once again filled up after the small drop that the box office suffered after last summer due to the onslaught of the covid-19. EFE
