Created to inaugurate the Channel Tunnel, Veles e Vents is inspired by the work of the Valencian poet Ausiàs March for a sharp view of the sea. An idyllic and simultaneously apocalyptic sea. A sea that sustains life for many peoples and, at the same time, a space for communication and convergence between civilizations and cultures. A sea that shows its revolt whenever we pollute it, transforming it into a nuclear cemetery, consumed by a permanent will-o’-the-wisp, derived from the oil catastrophes it has suffered.
Veles e Vents invites the public to reflect on the future of humanity on planet Earth, alerting to the environmental problems caused by the pollution of seas and oceans. Through the use of moving elements and pyrotechnics, the public will embark on a journey into their own consciousness, aboard a ship that, in a few seconds, can go from an idyllic sailboat to an oil polluter.
Veles e Vents is a true street theatre production, which captures the essence of current environmental issues, to rise up in defence of the planet and the oceans, leaving the pertinence of reflection and action on the audience’s side. An environmental message that is more present than ever, just like the scenic proposal.
