Neighborhood theater

EMILIA tried to join the Real Academia de la Lengua. Without success. Her insistence earned her the reprobation of many of her contemporaries, even after having gained the admiration of some others. Beyond the controversies, EMILIA stands out as a strong, intelligent and extraordinarily funny woman.
The project Mujeres que se Atreven comprises a series of theatrical monologues by women, historical characters who «narrate» their lives and, in doing so, relate their life conflicts to the archetypes, metaphors and images of women that operate in their respective contexts.
All of them perpetrate, in the course of the monologues, a series of «affirmative sabotages», critical reflections on the images of women available in their time, which are dramatically represented as «settling of scores». The monologue gives these women the possibility of returning to certain circumstances of their lives – moments of special density – in order to «dare».
We will also talk about theater about women, written, directed and performed by women. This is what Teatro del Barrio proposes with the play «Emilia», a monologue that places the writer Emilia Pardo Bazán in front of the academicians of the Spanish Language who rejected her admission to the institution. Not to be missed.

Xv women’s race.

The first thing that surprises us about the staging is the intelligent way in which the figure of Emilia Pardo Bazán is approached. Of course she was an exceptional writer, but Noelia Adánez and Anna R. Costa skillfully focus on showing us what this charismatic and ahead of her time woman was like; a strong, cultured and extraordinarily funny woman. Already, from her first appearance, Noelia and Anna make Emilia captivate us and we hold her hand throughout the play. The authors’ approach to Pardo Bazán is so effective and brilliant that, even when you leave the show, you want to delve deeper into who this woman really was and what the character is like.

Speech by pilar gómez on receiving the max award for best actress

Before the end of the season, Teatro del Barrio (Zurita, 20) revives ‘Emilia’, the play about Galician writer Emilia Pardo Bazán that revolutionized the off stage when it premiered (it was a finalist in the Max Awards for Best Playwright). The text of ‘Emilia’ is a mixture of allegory and biography that recounts the author’s struggle to enter the Royal Academy of Language. A battle that will allow us to discover this strong and brazen woman, who was ahead of her time and who never had any qualms about being and living according to her individual desires.
It is in charge of bringing to life Emilia Pilar Gómez, an actress who once again takes on the role of the protagonist, for which she was already awarded the MAX for Best Leading Actress in 2018. The libretto is in charge of Noelia Adánez, and Anna R. Costa returns to direct the theatrical stage of this widely awarded staging.
