July 2019. Scenography course that I carried out in Girona with the RCR architects (winners of a Pritzker Prize) and the set designers Bibiana Puigdefabregas and Albert Pascual.

Starting from the text of Araby, a short story from James Joyce’s The Dubliners collection, we had to formalize all our dreams in a scenography that would allow the realization of a play faithful to the story we wanted to tell.

We read the space (La Lira en Ripoll theatre) as an entity with its own character and materiality that we must respect and promote. Repetition endows the space with rhythm, creating a sequence of continuity. The void generated merges with the urban environment, becoming one more street with a flow of people.

A watchman leads the viewer through the story. Introduce this figure we

allows to have an external point of view to the facts, a person who is present

in the lives of our characters but that remains distant, going unnoticed

on the city streets. The story takes place in Dublin in 1910. It tells a fundamental moment in the life of one of its inhabitants, a boy who discovers the disappointment of his first love.

Concepts: – Continuity of architecture: using the building to tell a story. It wouldn’t make sense elsewhere. – Boieur – Longitunality – Transport the viewer to the Dublin of

1910 without leaving the La Lira theater, without artifice or bombast.
