Created and performed by Carlos García Estévez and Paige Allerton.
Solo dell’ Arte is an introduction to the audience of one of the most ancient types of theatre, the Commedia dell’ Arte, and the presence of this art into our days as a Contemporary Theatre. The actor performs the show in the purest sense of the Popular Tradition: 'a theatre for and with the audience'.
In this show there is an empty space, masks, an actor and the audience. And two stories: The moon of Santiago, Lola ‘La nuit’.
The Moon of Santiago is the love story of Manuel Lopez de Baranda, a solitary old man born in the south of Spain. Everything happened fifty years ago the night of the celebration, the Night of Santiago.
" Do not trust the full moon on summer nights! It drives people crazy..."
Lola 'La Nuit' is an artist who works in a Parisian nightclub, two streets away from the famous Moulin Rouge. Lolo works in a all-night convenience store and every night makes a pizza delivery to Lola.
