Collective documentary theatre experience that puts in dialogue two events of workers going on strike through their own words, where the participation of the spectators is intertwined by reading their words and documentary images of the events.
In 1979 the workers who had collectivised the Numax domestic appliance factory for two years decided to go on strike. In 2013 Fagor filed for bankruptcy, leaving 1800 workers unemployed. The relational theatre piece interweaves both events in a framework of workers’ struggle and social denunciation presented on screens with recordings of the workers involved, as well as real text that the audience, distributed in a circle, must read, with the guidance of a performer. Knowledge of the facts is thus motivated through an assembly in which the participants take the place of those who fought years ago. In Bernat’s words, “the collectivisation of the means of production becomes a collectivisation of discourse”.
