Txalapart ART and Oreka TX


Xarma is the name of this multidisciplinary show that Oreka TX will be premièring, along with , Txalapart ART, in Madrid as part of the Veranos de la Villa festival programme. The only large-format show for audiences of all ages in the Central Courtyard of the Condeduque Centre for Contemporary Culture that seeks to rekindle in “the boys and girls we hold inside us”, that sense of magic that is lost over the years.


Giant puppets controlled from the inside and enormous toys create a magical, out of the ordinary fantasy world, but there’s more! These huge scenic elements are joined by the company’s regular travelling companions: the dancers of Kukai Dantza. As well as dance, circus is another of the elements that will help to create this dreamlike atmosphere that envelops Xarma. Several different circus disciplines will be on display: aerial silk acrobatics, the double trapeze of the Berdinki company and Xabier Larrea and Gorka Pereira’s juggling and acrobatic swinging. 


The dreamy voice of Maika Etxekopar will lead us by the hand into this magical dimension in which what we thought might happen will happen: the characters, inhabitants of a fantastic universe, play with each other and invite us to play once more, to believe in magic.
