LIFE IS A DREAM: EL BULULÚ

LIFE IS A DREAM: EL BULULÚ

Madrid, 1648. The theaters of Madrid have been closed by royal order and the actors are persecuted. The proclamations of the bailiffs who collect the prohibition take us into the basement of the famous Turkish´s Tavern, where a young actor represents the first verses of “Life is a dream”. Soon we will know that it is about Sebastián de Prado, a famous actor of the time.

In addition to interpreting almost all of Calderón’s verses, Sebastián will bring us closer to the Madrid of the Golden Age, to his theatrical life, he will tell us how the comedy corrals and the companies of the league worked, the ins and outs of the premiere of the work, anecdotes about its author, he will even show us a bundle of his family and ask us for help to use the props…

You think you are on stage with the characters. In the most verses dramatic, I think my heart is going to leave my chest, I need air and I breathe accelerated. And in specific verses, it seems that his gaze is directed at me,I try to hold my gaze without crying at those big words. And suddenly the lights come on, the audience stands up and applauds. Clap your hands, yell and I cry. It has made me so short! ‘

EL BULULÚ

A BULULÚ IS A SOLO REPRESENTATIVE, WHO DOES COMEDIES WITHOUT ANYONE’S HELP. HE ARRIVES INTO A VILLAGE, REQUESTS A TAVERN OR PLACE TO REPRESENT, GATHERS THE INHABITANTS AND SHOWS THEM A WORK, MAKING ALL THE CHARACTERS ONLY BY HIM AND, WHEN HE IS FINISHED, ASK FOR THE ALMS, PICK UP HIS BEANS, GO ON HIS PATH AND FOLLOW HIS PATH. ‘

(‘THE ENTERTAINING JOURNEY’, Agustín de Rojas. 1624)
