Peix is a small-format solo based on the disciplines of circus and clowning. A reflection, from the poetics of the absurd, on «Mallorquinity», on the impact of tourism, on power struggles, on the emptiness, silence and solitude in the face of immensity, on the ridiculousness of being grown-up and nostalgia for being kids. A metaphorical trip into the depths of being human to find the thing that keeps us swimming, searching and stirring despite the magnitude and unpredictable and always surprising strength of the waves.
“This was—and wasn’t—a fish that reflected, doubtfully, towards infinite depths, on his own, not being watched by a big fish, without the embrace of a Manta Ray, no Swordfish, no Clownfish, no Congers. Free. Yet he can’t seem to get it out of his mind.”
