Production by the Ion Sava Centre for Theatrical Creation and Research under the 9G programme at NTB.


The show is not recommended for people under 12 years old.

Santi and Rosó are two young artists from Barcelona who arrived in a small town in the provinces to perform a show of "romantic duets". In rehearsals for the show, the two begin to question their lives and their love relationship. Apparently, the triggering event for this tension is Santi's brother-in-law's car accident.

But previously unacknowledged truths and doubts about the couple begin to surface: "you don't love me", "there's nothing between us anymore", "from the beginning I realized the relationship wasn't going to work". The two end up focusing on what they don't have, on financial shortfalls and their artistic unfulfillment. It all happens under the pressure of the audience coming to the "romantic duets" performance.

A bittersweet comedy about the feeling of failure. About professional failure, couple crisis, the need to lie and taking refuge in unfulfilled dreams.
