ME DAN ENVIDIA LOS CANGUROS / I ENVY THE KANGAROOS

(ABAJO EN ESPAÑOL)

I ENVY THE KANGAROOS
A solo performance by Maritea Daehlin that takes us to the limit of our loneliness.

Short version in English:

“Have you ever wished to stop feeling lonely, without having to be too close to the other: Have you wanted to have your feet deeply planted on the ground and at the same time be able to move freely around the world: Have you yearned the feeling of being totally protected inside the womb of your mother, as a kangaroo? Don’t worry my friend; today I will give you the chance to acquire some products that solve all the big problems of human kind.”

I ENVY THE KANGAROOS is a devised solo-performance which engages the audience to a poetic and visual world whilst exploring the idea of otherness and ownership.  As in her earlier work, Maritea Dæhlin plays with the idea of creating a non-linear poetic world filled with physical actions and text, as well as the idea of selling artistic solutions to real, jet absurd, problems. In this way the stage is transformed into a complex world of emotions, images, rituals, anecdotes, songs and objects, which welcome absurdity and humour, bringing us to the limits of our loneliness.

The piece has been shown at various venues in Chiapas and Oaxaca in Mexico; Chicago in USA and in Oslo, Norway. In 2017 the piece is going to New York City.

ME DAN ENVIDIA LOS CANGUROS
Unipersonal de Maritea Daehlin.

El público de ME DAN ENVIDIA LOS CANGUROS se encontrará con un mundo poético y visual, donde se explora la idea del otro y la búsqueda de lo nuestro. Llevándolos al límite de la soledad.

Al igual que en trabajos anteriores de Maritea Daehlin, sigue explorando y desarrollando la idea de crear poesía en acción y vender soluciones artísticas a problemas reales, para que el escenario se convierta en un mundo complejo donde se aborda la temática con seriedad y humor, dándole la bienvenida a lo absurdo.

La obra ha sido mostrada en varias locaciones de Chiapas y Oaxaca, México; en Chicago EUA; en Oslo, Noruega. En el 2017 la pieza viaja a Nueva York, EUA.
