El Conde de Torrefiel

La posibilidad que desaparece frente al paisaje

In ten episodes from a variety of European cities, four performers manifest different perspectives from a continent steeped in history. What is hidden beneath the landscape we see? Battlefields have made way for beautiful landscapes and if no one remembers the horrors that took place, you might think that nothing ever happened there. On the same planet and at the same moment, people are having completely different experiences. We can look at the same landscape together, but we do not share the same experience. El Conde de Torrefiel bring to light the barbarity, the nasty things buried beneath our daily routine. They tell unconventional everyday stories. The texts sometimes come from anonymous sources, sometimes from famous intellectuals, but they always call into question the different registers of how we perceive and how we see. Since its inception in 2010, the group from Barcelona has very quickly made an international name for itself.
