La petite voiture (la comtesse)

This show is a multidisciplinary dance and multimedia installation for open, closed or semi-closed urban spaces, as well as for museums.

Created from a collection micro car with an unusual design made in the 60s and ecological.

At night, in an ironic tone, Cia Alicia Soto-Hojarasca once again exposes a social and current theme, using a car as a scenographic element and dance-theater, video creation, multimedia and sound as protagonists.

Small and medium format.

20 minutes.
Possibility of acting different times in the day in different places of the city
(night performance from 9:00 p.m.)

1 actor + 1 dancer + 1 technician

A strange little black car, completely ecological propulsion. A small Pandora's box that constitutes a closed and mobile world, moves through a city, unpredictably.

This Pandora's box represents our inner world with which we move and which sometimes makes us think that it is useless to search in other places or look for better moments, if nothing has changed within ourselves.

It is the metaphor of our struggle to escape from the context of our lives, from the social-economic-political world in which we move and that formats and imprisons us. This world where everything more or less comes down to money and the price of things.

money money money
money money money
says the song
Money makes the world go around
The world go around
The world go around
A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound
That clinking clanking sound
Can make the world go 'round. We all want money and the saying goes: "With money you can buy everything except happiness" but today you can also, happiness is a large basket full of things that you can buy in the great supermarket in the world.

Our protagonists: the driver who represents glamour, the world that everyone yearns for, desires, and a passenger, an elegant woman who lives hooked, trapped in this world that shines like coins but like money when handled and shines with time. is lost and the coin is dark.

The multimedia its support, replacing the stroller's windows with LHD monitors will recreate a whole world that happens on a natural scale inside the car, the dream world of the unconscious.

The dancer-actress makes us discover this inner, dark, hidden world and she almost manages to escape and enjoy the pleasures of life and the glamor world where she is, but without success, her world overcomes her and losing the fight, the stroller catches her again.

To try, in another part of the city, to escape again and start a new life.

A disturbing myth of Sisyphus, with very contemporary aesthetics and images and a fun choreography-action that invites you to smile and think about the world we live in.
