Ubú

2005

A Bambalina-Paco Bascuñan-Jácara Teatro and Teatres Generalitat Valenciana production for La Nau de Sagunt. 

This time the mystery goes by the name of Ubú. There are those who consider him to be character, but he isn’t. If he were, then a face could be fit on him and that is not the case, he is faceless. Ubú transcends the carnal aspects of portrayal. Every time one talks of him there appear the puppet and the mask. Ubú is the result of pure intelligence, of the kind that bears ideas – a monster with the capacity to acquire life and autonomy. Ubú’s essence is intangible, which is why when he can be seen and heard he is shit. Ubú materialised is a simple crook. Ubú incarnate is an irritatingly pure crude monster. That is why our show can only strive to be shit. But that is not the worst bit, the most disconcerting aspect is that if this is not the case, then we would have screwed up.
