"Bells and Spells, un vero capolavoro"
Teatro.it
"Lo spettacolo ha un intensità straordinaria"
Teatro.it
"Lo spazio perde via via connotati riconoscibili e le creature evocate sulla scena prendono forme surreali e rimangono sospesi in bilico tra l’essere oggetti, animali e forme umane."
Teatro.it
"Noi non potevamo mancare e quello a cui abbiamo assistito è uno spettacolo davvero irresistibile."

"Tutto, sul palco, appare surreale: sparizioni, repentini cambi di abito, niente è quello che sembra, ed è per questo che ci piace."

"Applausi da ovazione"

"Concludendo, in questo sintetico giudizio di meraviglia, di ammirazione, abbiamo assistito ad uno spettacolo magico."

about the show

In a single act made of a succession of scenes, Aurélia plays an incurable kleptomaniac woman who suddenly
finds herself under the influence of the objects she has “borrowed”. Improbable mechanisms, strange
encounters, mad music boxes punctuate her journey in this unpredictable theatrical play.
The rhythm is peculiar and incessant and transports us into a succession of “everyday life” scenes where
Aurélia collects objects that don’t belong to her, bringing the audience inside a world where everything is
possible. Elegant and ethereal, Aurélia opens the door of her restless and poetic imagination.
With the performer and dancer Jaime Martinez, the multifaceted artist guides you through unknown
territories where magic, surrealism and humour are the norm and where she suddenly finds herself at the
mercy of the objects she tries to seize. Seats and tables slide and move independently, walls come alive,
common objects transform into strange animal, a forest of coat hangers turn into a dragon. Strangeness
meets wonder and illusion.
