And protecting him, they unprotected him...and life hurts him.

Gesture and masked theatre.

A heterosexual couple, madly in love, fervently wish to have a child who is the fruit of that love. After a lengthy process of trying to conceive, and the consequent pain, frustration and wear and tear that this can cause, they finally manage to get pregnant.

The obstacles they have faced along the way make them safeguard their child like a treasure. And in protecting it, they unprotect it. Wanting the best, they deprive it of the tools to shield one from life. And life hurts.

In 2019, more than 5000 archives were opened in Spain for cases of filio-parental violence, the name given to the set of repeated behaviour of physical or psychological violence from children to parents, or to those adults who take the place of the parents. According to the Amigo Foundation, this number represents only 10% to 15% of all the cases that presumably take place in Spain. It is a taboo problem that families often face with shame, without tools and in solitude. With this reality as a starting point, Kulunka is preparing its next performance, to be premiered at Arriaga Theatre.
