Night Just Before the Forests is the ultimate performance conceived by César Barló and José Gonçalo Pais in Madrid, Spain. Since its openning in May 2014, the audience and press are agree that is one of these performances you have to live. An impressive actor who plays a brutal interpretation alone on the stage and a contemporary and poetic direction by César Barló creates a great show filled up with poetry and new technologies.

AlmaViva Teatro explores the cry from one man who can be all men and women. A man living in a certain time, who lived – or will ever live – for all time. Because theatre is a mirror game and should be universal; every person coming into the hall should feel that the man who is now showing us his situation could be themselves, at any time. A theatrical proposal filled with poetry. The atmospheres engender an aesthetic experience at the same time poetic and contemporary. The use of new technologies through a live video camera resizes the viewing experience and makes it even closer.

We show Night Just Before the Forests as a whole creative production in which the audience is part of it.
