“Julieta Unplugged” (2011) & “Ofelia o La inteligencia de las Flores” (2012) are two pieces but are in reality making just one. They are the first two pieces from the triptych “Las Cicatrices Invisibles” (Invisible Scars)
The tragic stories of Julieta and Ofelia we all have in mind. Lorca in "El Público" (1931) and Müller in Hamlet-Machine (1970) revived these theatre myths and tore them from their graves giving them a voice. An opportunity to examine the theatre, the notion of conventional identity and to give us their vision of the society’s change in the theater but also in their own lives. The
parallels are what is interesting in "Julieta Unplugged” & “Ofelia o La inteligencia de las Flores”, and to play on the common points, enjoying the scenic freedom and the vital energy for which they have battled so.
I am always surprised that they can think those things that make my works are bold, the audacity of the poet. No. These are authentic details that will surprise a lot many people because for them it is amazing to live life this way, so simple and so little
experienced in this way: seeing and hearing. [...] (FGL 1935)
"Theatre is crisis. This is the very definition of theatre or it should be. It works like the crisis and in the crisis otherwise it would have no
connection with the society outside of the black box. (Heiner Müller 1995).
