More Information on GUERRILLA

What do the young generation think about Europe today? What anxieties about the future preoccupy them as they go about their lives? El Conde de Torrefiel, one of the most exciting and provocative theatre companies to emerge from Spain in recent years, explore this in their newest work.

Guerrilla is a dark comedy about the awakening of awareness. It presents the confused, contradictory inner universe of a group of people that inhabit the same moment in time, move through the same city, share the collective consciousness of the same continent, and are affected by the same consequences.

This epic, visceral performance features a company of local participants. The action is made up of three distinct parts (a rave, Tai Chi class, and conference) and unfolds in a dystopian future in three different cities. As the crowd dance, talk and listen, their most intimate thoughts are revealed.


Guerrilla is presented as part of Transform 17, a festival of bold, local & international theatre
