A new work by ATRESBANDES
All In takes a wild ride through vastly different, seemingly unconnected worlds, where everyday situations
take unexpected turns into the absurd and intimate. Dictatorships, nightclubs, national anthems, education and self help manuals combine in an epic journey that questions how free we really are from the tyranny of the crowd.
For this new performance, Atresbandes have brought striking visuals to their characteristic blend of physical theatre and meditative text in a darkly playful exploration of the millennial condition.
About the company
ATRESBANDES are a company from Barcelona making sharp, perceptive work on the boundaries of theatre and performance. Since their first appearance in the UK at BE Festival 2012, they have toured the country twice, with Solfatara in 2014 and then with the critically acclaimed Locus Amoenus in 2016. They also work extensively in venues across Spain and mainland Europe.
The company was formed by Mònica Almirall Batet, Miquel Segovia Garrell and Albert Pérez Hidalgo in 2008. Influenced by a diverse range of disciplines, the essential thread to their work is the collective creative process. They seek to question everything around them and believe that doubt and uncertainty are as important as mutual understanding.
ALL IN was first performed at HOME, Manchester in April 2016 as part of ¡Viva! festival of Spanish and Latin American Arts. Since then, it has appeared at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 at Summerhall, Festival TNT, Terrassa in Spain and Sala Hiroshima, Barcelona.
