Speaking walls

Sinopsia

Walls have no mouth, they have no tongue, or eyes, or ears… They can’t talk, they can’t
hear, but they can see. Walls are always there when we arrive, and there they’ll stay once
we leave. You can paint them a thousand times but they are still there, acting as if they
couldn’t see, or hear, as if they weren’t alive.


Some walls protect us, others, though, isolate us.There are paintings that beautify walls,
paintings that are used to complain, paintings that make us remember the past or even
paintings that inform us of different happenings. Some paintings become famous and others
are unnoticed.


What if we watch and think about everything they have lived and seen? Or what if they were
able to talk for one day? 


Migration, gender inequality, society’s automatism…
SPEAKING WALLS IS A PROPOSAL THAT, BASED ON IMAGINING WHAT WALLS
WOULD SAY, REFLECTS ON THE DIFFICULTIES AND PROBLEMS OF COEXISTENCE.
Based on the DSS2016EU program and following its objectives, Haatik has created a
theatre show with the support of the Basque Government. In it, the company brought
together works of different artists and five short pieces of dance.
The color elements and drawings that appear in the works of different walls make a powerful
and attractive scene.
