On the one hand, we have bananas. There are available to all, innocent, sweet, manly, cheap. In 1890, no one in the West had seen, much less eaten, a banana. By 1920, it was the king of the supermarket. “Kingdom” strips back the history of capitalism and bananas as never before and does so with a perfect partner: King Kong. Through King Kong and what he represents (virility, overwhelming force, instinct) this production shows the mechanisms that operate within the economic and social system of the West.

La Agrupación Señor Serrano is one of the most exciting and original companies on the scene today. As testament to this, they have won awards such as the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale 2015 as well as the City of Barcelona Prize 2016. As in their previous pieces, “Kingdom” continues to explore the idea of cinema in real time, reinforced with elements created live: music, performance and movement take to the stage.
