This week's stage programming at the Teatro Circo Murcia (TCM) is especially aimed at young audiences, with theater and circus proposals that address issues such as teenage suicide and the need to face the wounds themselves;
the loss and how we can overcome it, and the cultural diversity that characterizes today's society.
They are shows that already have, in addition, a system of auditory accessibility that will be available from now on in all the performances that are part of the programming of the main hall of the TCM.
An FM system valid for simultaneous individual magnetic loop services with induction loops (which reduces ambient sound) and amplified sound with headphones.
The first scenic proposal, '# Malditos16', will be performed tomorrow, Thursday, October 10 (9pm).
It is a montage for young and family audiences that aims to put teenage suicide on the table, as well as other realities such as bullying, eating disorders, sexual violence and the difficulty of finding one's own identity.
Ali, Dylan, Naima and Rober are four young people who met in their teens, after trying to take their own lives.
Five years later, they meet again to help other people who are going through the same situation.
Through their lives and experiences, '# Malditos16' goes into the pain of being alive.
A teenage pain that is often about silencing but that those responsible for this assembly, with its author, Fernando J. López, at the head, try to become a topic of debate in the classrooms and also in the houses.
With the aim that the play is the centerpiece of a major action, from Coart-e Productions a didactic guide has also been prepared that teachers and parents can download through their website (www.coarteproducciones.com ) and where you will find different activities to perform before and after the function.
The locations for '# Malditos16' are available at the box office and through the website www.teatrocircomurcia.es, for 10, 12 and 15 euros.
In addition, you can still buy at the box office the 'Young Pass' which, for a total price of 33'75 euros (25% discount in Zone A) allows to attend, in addition to '# Malditos16', to 'Pals' (11 Oct), 'Mi nombre el Hor' (Nov 30) and 'Essential' (Jan 17).
On Friday, October 11 (8pm), the contemporary circus show 'Pals', from the Cíclicus Company, will take place.
Created in 2009 and based in Barcelona, â€‹â€‹Cíclicus bases its shows on technical research with its own wooden devices and the dramaturgical force of the circus.
A tribute to death that is, above all, a tribute to life is the proposal of 'Pals', which chronicles the physical and emotional journey of a troupe of circus artists who try to assume the loss of one of their companions.
In this ritual tribute that will take place on stage, all kinds of inventions that suggest a dialogue with the concepts of change and transformation will come into play.
Tickets to attend 'Pals' can be purchased at the box office and through the website www.teatrocircomurcia.es and have a single price of 10 euros.
The last theatrical performance of the week will take place on Saturday, October 12 (7pm), with a family proposal by the Valencian company El Pont Flotant.
'The 7 differences' is conceived as a show for children to enjoy the theater and become familiar with other ways of existing.
Other realities to approach with a restless and open look.
This show was born with the manifest intention of making family reflect on what separates us and unites us to people.
Through very different characters, a range of languages, customs and ways of understanding life that reflect the diversity with which we live together is shown on stage.
Tickets for Saturday can be purchased at the box office and online (www.teatrocircomurcia.es) and have a single price of 6 euros (TCM discounts not applicable).
Again on this occasion, the company makes available to the public, parents and teachers, a teaching dossier (https://les7diferencies.blog/) with information and activities on the play, making 'The 7 differences' a reason to debate, play and imagine a more respectful and fair world.
