La tormenta y la guerra [The storm and the war] begins in the 1980s, with the neoconservative revolution led by Margaret Thatcher in Europe and by Ronald Reagan in the United States, and culminates in the first great shock of the twenty-first century: the Iraq war, in which we were all participants. Because that what the shock involves - reflecting on the extent to which we are participants in our history, our shocks, our coups, our violence.
It is a piece of documentary theatre that presents History, but for experiencing it emotionally, and authored by leading lights in playwriting.
Andrés Lima (born Madrid, 1961) is a director, actor and playwright, and is considered one of Spain's greatest contemporary directors. With his productions, he has contributed to updating the concepts behind the theatrical mise-en-scène. He has taken numerous courses in Spain and was awarded a scholarship by the Royal Court Theatre in London for its international residency programme for new playwrights. He was the founder of the Animalario company, which he has directed in Penumbra (2010), Urtain (2008), Titus Andronicus (2009), Argelino (servant of two masters) (2008), Marat-Sade (2006) and Hamelin (2005), among other productions.
As a stage director, he has worked for the Comédie-Française (Les joyeuses commères de Windsor, 2011, and Bonheur, 2009) and the Gothenburg Stadsteater (Sweden) (The Danton case, 2012, and Blackbird, 2010). He has been awarded the Max Prize for Best Direction on several occasions for his productions Urtain, Argelino (Servant of two masters), Marat-Sade and Hamelin as well as El Cóndor y el Puma [The Condor and the Puma]. He received the National Theatre Award from the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports in 2019.
The diptych Shock consists of the productions El Cóndor y el Puma [The Condor and the Puma] and La tormenta i la guerra [The storm and the war]. The two productions can be seen in alternating performances on 14 and 15 April, followed (in consecutive performances) on 16 and 17 April. Directed by Andrés Lima (El Pan y la sal [Bread and salt], 2018/19; Oedipus Rex, Medea and Antigone, 2015/16; The dumb waiter, 2012/13) and inspired by Naomi Klein's book The shock doctrine, they are a journey explaining how the psychiatric research of the 1950s and the ultraliberal theories of the Chicago School of Economics are used to lay the foundations for capitalism all over the world. From Chile and Argentina to Iraq, and to the present day.
