Inspired from the Catalan poet Joan Brossa’s visual poem art, the performance starts with a musician-actor playing the role of a poet. The poet is carrying a suitcase full of letters made of foam. He starts to play their sounds and shapes, discovering that the letters can be used to create poetry without the necessity to construct the words. With his guitar and songs, he establishes a warm relationship with the letters that come alive, creating a universe full of characters, choreographies, humor, and drama to show that letters are not only capable of filling up papers and computers but also creating a sensitive world of breathtaking simplicity. You will not be able to forget this simple but impressive Jordi Bertran classic for years to come.
