TRAINS OF MARCH
Year of release: 2004
The attack on the March 11th of 2004 in Madrid is the starting point of this reflection and musical staging done by the Danish composer Lars Graugaard, the film director Claudio Zulian, the writer Antonio Montesinos and the stage director Rafel Duran. A view of the facts which focuses on the bulk of random circumstances, unpredictable crosses and dramatic contradictions that are characteristic in a tragedy of these dimensions. It’s a show that re-produces the pictures and the speeches that were made on the event and there are some other new ones added. It is a multimedia show, with records of speeches and words in periodistic style and poetic style, which goes from the reflection to the critical farce.
