if silence knew
Created, performed and directed by Cristina Castrillo

Created as part of an extensive study on playwriting without words, this performance, precisely because it avoids words, is dedicated to them.
It tries to tell ,with and through silence ,the voices that live in it, the lost words, those we have not the courage to utter, those which, if expressed, would lose the emotion that accompanies them.
What we will never be able to say.
Overused words, words too tired by time or by the total absence of meaning.
Constructed like a small poem with no name, this performance passes through naivety and dreams; images written with smoke, as eloquent as a silent scream and as delicate as the flight of a feather.
After "On the heart of the earth" and "Umbral", Cristina Castrillo is back on stage, alone. As a way of living and conceiving this profession once again.
