My Prince Charming

Dancing the baroque guitar’s music

In 2017, at the Festival de teatro Clásico de Almagro, with our dance company El ballet imperial de la reina Rosamunda, we released “My Prince Charming.” A contemporary dance show against the stereotypes of the male / female roles to the present and for all time.

Monsieur Croche

In search of inspiration and freedom

In the summer of 2016, with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’ at the Sant Pere Sallavinera classical music festival, we premiered “Monsieur Croche”, a show without text, with puppets, masks and gesture theater and the music played live by Claude Debussy.

2014

El llop ferotge

A show on good and evil

In the summer of 2014, once more with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’, we gave the first performance of our first street show, “El llop ferotge” (The big bad wolf). Based on the judgement of the wolf’s character, we tell the popular stories of Little red Riding Hood, the Three Little Pigs and the Seven Young Kids. “El llop ferotge” is a show of actors, puppets and masks for children from three to eight years of age, which can be performed in the open air or in a theatre.

2012

Escenes d’infants

A new dance company

In 2012, we founded the new dance company ‘El ballet imperial de la reina Rosamunda’, with which we created “Escenes d’infants” (Scenes from Childhood). In this show we take a tour of different piano works by the great Catalan musician Frederic Mompou, and following the spirit of his music, we try to show the most important values of infancy: freedom, joy, humour, simplicity, imagination, playing and innocence.

  • “A real treat this gift from ‘El ballet imperial de la reina Rosamunda’. It is a very complete piece that is danced freshly with great complicity between the two dancers/performers and which gives elements to connect with the audience which, in some choreographies, can but applaud. A piece deserving of the attention of public entities for its mixture of challenges: Mompou, contemporary dance, generous stage area, excitement and sensitivity.“

El país del pa amb tomàquet

A show of extra-terrestrial clowns

In 2012, with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’ in a joint production with the Teatre de l’Aurora, we first performed “El país del pa amb tomàquet” (the country of tomato rubbed bread), a show which talks about Catalan traditions from a very special point of view; from that of two extra-terrestrials who have spent a year in a school in our country.

  • “At the hand of two extra-terrestrials, excellently performed by Clara Dalmau and Mònica Torra, who on returning to their blue planet explain what “el país del pa amb tomàquet” is all about, the children browse through Catalan traditions with their characters, songs, sayings… in a light, original and amusing proposal that highlights quality scenography alongside the performance of the two actresses.“

Cavallet de cartró

Various authors

“Cavallet de cartró” (The wooden horse) is a poetry show for younger infants with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’. From the memory of the leading actress, we relive her infancy, when poetry became an amusing and pretty way to discover the world around her. First performed in the autumn of 2010, it was created from the poetic work of different authors and received the Bòtil 2010 awards given by the government of the Balearic Islands and the entity Sa Xerxa.

  • “The work was very interesting. The main character was a puppet who loved to write poems in a poetry book. She turned over the four seasons, observing the changes in the weather and the festivals we hold reciting children’s poems. As teachers we encourage you to introduce the kids to poetry at home too, either by reading together or going to shows of this kind which are highly enriching.“

La tempesta 

A Shakespeare for all publics

The second show  with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’ is the William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, a staging conceived for all publics of the work by the English dramatist, and was jointly produced on the Temporada Alta-Festival de Tardor de Catalunya. In 2010 it won the Award for the Best Staging of the Puppet Festival of the Vall d’Albaida (Valencia). We have presented it at festivals like Fetén, Olmedo Classical Theatre Festival and Almagro Classical Theatre Festival.

  • “Marc Hervàs’s direction is detailed, rigorous and with a visible stubbornness that everything should flow, that a certain poetry and harmony should be maintained so that in the transitions, in addition to suggestive music of the time, the performers should dance in the same way as the spirit floods the character they handle, to the extent that people could forget that these are puppets and accept that they are the natural extension of the performers’ bodies.“

Sis Joans

our first show

We started in 2007 and up to now we have created six shows with ‘La companyia del príncep Totilau’ (theatre) and two with “El ballet imperial de la reina Rosamunda” (dance). The first, “Sis Joans” (Six Johns), joint produced by the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, is based on the tales of the same name by the writer Carles Riba.

  • “Sis Joans” is a little jewel on the TNC program. The six tales by Carles Riba are interesting not only in terms of literature, but also for their personal maturity. Now, on the 80th anniversary of their publication, they become yet more of a classic with a sensitive staging generating little emotions.
