XXI Garnacha de Haro National Drama Competition (December 2018):
Prize for Best Direction.
Judges 2nd Prize for Best Performance.
Audience award for Best Performance.
A brutal story about a wedding celebration. In a direct, shameless way without filters. Leaving hypocrisy on one side and aiming to break rules directly. Forgetting superficiality and going straight to the flesh.
A cabaret causing trembling and laughter which reaches a diverse audience. Young people drawn by topics, such as identity, family or job insecurity, meet middle-aged or elderly people in the same room, and participate with ease in the wedding celebration itself.
A becoming of developing identities dragged into a joint emotional catharsis.
It encourages the collaboration in each performance of local groups that participate by singing, dancing and turning each performance into an event.
