Interior Noche is a theatrical piece that uses time as work material and plays with overlapping impossible space and time fragments.
A long nightly campsite scene. A lab with folding seats, shades and camping tents. The spectator, with the help of a headlight, will discover in that summer night a collage of objects and memory. The light beam coming from their heads stages their looks together with the ones from the rest of the audience, uncovering temporalities and individual decisions that condition the play.
The campsite as the spare time paradigm. A collection of ephemeral objects, designed to panic. “2 Seconds” engineering that imposes on us the spare time management as a commodity product. Interior noche wants to reverse that temporarily-like logic and transform immediacy into contemplation and what’s utilitarian into absurd.

Set in a living, surreal and constantly-changing landscape, Interior Noche sublimes the ‘Quechua’ world through an intentionally tacky and analogue aesthetic, getting objects designed from the mantra of efficiency to end up wasting their time. Celebrating inefficiency as the re-conquest of a lost time, what we are lighting up with our torches could become a kind of mirror and get us smiling at our own misfortune.
