If we were alone in the universe it would be a big waste of space arises from the necessity to share, transmit, develop and multiply the possibilities of the scenic language generated in the piece Big Bounce, the collective’s first piece. Big Bounce is a scenic proposal that plays with the idea of unfolding different possible futures from the same origin, and takes on the name of a homonymous theory that suggests that we could be living in the first of all universes, but that it is equally probable that we would be living in the universe two thousand million (or whatever number in an infinite sequence of universes). In this new proposal, the Big Bouncers Collective revisits the already existent materials from Big Bounce in order to play with them again, expand and multiply them and rediscover their potential. The piece proposes a scenic explosion, doubling the number of performers in order to multiply the possibilities for the creation of new imagery through bodies that transform, substitute each other, contradict each other, generate new realities and new memories, suggesting parallel universes that question the idea of origin.
Si estiguéssim soles a l’univers, seria una gran pèrdua d’espai (“If we are alone in the universe, it would be a great waste of space”) is a piece that questions the idea of origin and our place, as a human beings, occidental women, in the universe we live in. This proposal invites the audience to imagine parallel realities and reveals multiple points of view that one can have about one single fact, image or form within the world that we share.
