The Conquest of the South Pole


Next dates:

‘The Conquest of the South Pole’ by Manfred Karge (Temporada Alta and Sala Beckett, 2009. Quim Masó Prize for theatrical productions).
Storytelling as a means to escape reality for the terminally-unemployed. A scenic poem about failure. A group of long term unemployed men discover in the story of the Conquest of the South Pole an impulse to continue living. In this case, the game of theatre exorcizes the demons of deseperation and the lack of motivations to live.
