Around a small table, in an intimate, salon setting, a powerful sequence of close-up sensory experiences invokes old memories and invents new ones. Through this miscellany of sights and sounds, objects and photos, a fascinating story unfolds in a powerful sequence exploring memory and identity. Like a magician, or medium at a séance, Xavier Bobés manipulates both past and future.

Xavier Bobés is a self-taught actor, scenic creator and manipulator. Passionate about the poetry of objects, he’s been researching it for around 12 years with all kinds of everyday objects. He collaborates with other artists both as a performer and as a manipulator. Through the creation, testing and teaching he’s researching the symbolic content, theatre of objects and all that appears banal.

1.What would you say Goodbyeto in the social and political context of your own city and country?

Goodbye to the factional interference in cultural politics in favor of critical and independent thinking.

2.What would you say are good (positive) practices of cultural politics in your city and country? What impact did the implementation of these practices had on the cultural scene in your city and country?

Listen to the citizens for big little changes in the neighborhood, promoting little scale cultural events, far from touristic interests to be able to believe that another city is possible, and that this is still human.
