In our lives we face different critical situations, situations that we have to face without knowing very well how. Many times it is a critical moment for us, and other times we know how to face them. All these situations have been revealed this afternoon on the boards of Bizkaia Aretoa, situations that have been presented to us from Catalonia. And the Arrels Fundació theater group has been in charge of opening the afternoon screening of the first day of the Homeless Film Festival. His work titled “Casting” exposes the different tests to face in life, since in his own words, “life is a casting.”
The public has given a loud ovation to the protagonists of the work, and they have been able to collect all the affection that the time they have dedicated to their works deserves. After its participation in the 2018 Homeless Film Festival, this foundation that has worked with the homeless in Barcelona since 1987, has made Bilbao a second home.
After the performance of Arrels, the Zenbatu company has once again performed his work “Surviving”, and his intervention, accompanied by his traditional musical band, has delighted the audience. The group directed by Iván Iparraguirre is already a consolidated group that connects with the audience of the Homeless Film Festival, and without a doubt year after year its exhibition is highlighted in the festival program.
To close a first day full of emotion, Isabel Paniagua, a volunteer from Bizitegi, has once again offered the public her poem “We are not a street.”
The first day dedicated to theater has ended amid cheers and applause, and leaves the ground ready for tomorrow’s day, which will be entirely dedicated to cinema. This promises!
