What is life? Based on this question, Paramecis i meteorits invites us to peer through the microscope and marvel at the diversity and complexity of the smallest life forms. At the heart of the proposal lies biologist Lynn Margulis, one of the most insightful figures when it comes to thinking about the Earth as a huge network of interdependencies and about evolution as a process in which symbiosis and cooperation prevail over competition. Halfway between an installation and an immersive piece, Paramecis i meteorits invites us to enter the set of a cosmos whose balance is unstable, a space where the concepts of life, genetics, gender and eroticism mix with the collective experience of exploring and allowing different landscapes to grow, on different scales.

 

The set designer Xesca Salvà and the playwright Marc Villanueva share an interest in the concepts of play and experience, and in addressing social and political issues through the intimacy and direct participation of the audience. For the past two years they have been working together on the Understory project, on everything that makes life possible without us being aware of it. Paramecis i meteorits is the first episode thereof.
