Karrasekare is the new production of the Igor x Moreno company, inspired by the pagan carnival traditions of Sardinia and the Basque Country.
Karrasekare is a return to the pre-Christian rituals, when the celebration of the spring solstice was not yet called carnival, when the community was not yet asked to remove the meat, but to put much more meat on the fire.
Karrasekare looks to the past and enters the future. It uses the same rhythms that have accompanied us for centuries to produce new free, fluid, queer identities. It uproots pagan rituals from their context of origin (the street, the square, …) to pass them into the gears of the theatrical machine.
Karrasekare is a performance that vibrates with the energy of a festival, with the excitement of being together, with the risk that emerges when dances, songs and drunkenness mingle, with our sense of modesty, with the winter that has been and the blossoming that is just around the corner.
