Magda Puig Torres is the resident artist this season. She and Andreu Martínez explore the concept of thauma, which means surprise and wonder, and which Aristotle considered the origin of knowledge and philosophy.

We live in a world full of answers, but with fewer and fewer questions. To be surprised is precisely that, to ask questions. In fact Aristotle considered the thauma (the astonishment) as the origin of knowledge. The surprise is that radical state of strangeness and disbelief before what surrounds us, and makes us inquire about a world that we believe to know perfectly.

Thauma is a playful scenic poem that defies the sleeping look and proposes to discover a new look at what is assumed, recovering the feeling of discovering the world for the first time.

The residence of Magda Puig Torres is mentored by the Greek stage director Dimitris Papaioannou. This support is part of the international mentoring program of the Institut Ramon Llull.

The Carlota Soldevila grants are possible thanks to the partnership with the Fundació Banc Sabadell.
