Macondo Auto Teatr by Silvia Mercuriali
Dramaturgy support by Gemma Brockis
Sound by Tommaso Perego
Film Collage by Susanne Dietz
Macondo Autoteatro combines instruction based theatre, binaural sound and poetic writing to create an interactive show where audience members perform for each other following a set of instructions. Choosing between Beginners, Intermediate and Heroes the participants decide the level of involvement they want to have in the show and abandon themselves to a predetermined script to create the village of Macondo.
Inspired by One Hundred years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
