The production “Black Clouds Don’t Cry” is inspired by feelings and thoughts we consciously or unconsciously repress and hide in our souls. Our human body turns into a hard shell, impenetrable and perfectly masked by a wide range of different faces we show, while only one is hidden beneath the surface.

If we pick an apple from a tree and want to paint it, its surface and imaginary structure are still vivd in our eyes, yet its contents are already lifeless and certainly dead. Indeed, in Spanish, “still life” is called far more appropriately “naturaleza muerta”, or “dead nature”.
