SMALL SUICIDES

THE CRITICS HAVE WRITTEN:

Towards late 70s an international expedition of pioneers ventured into the world of objects, until then unexplored, with the intention to excavate and dig up materials to study their nature. A member of the crew, who more than others thought to distinguish in the objective of this mission the possible subject of his vocation, he penetrated it so much into the unknown, to remain dispersed among the ruins. He is still there, digging, amid signs that die, forms that extinct. He digs in different directions, because the fund is large enough to not have to touch at the same point, risking repeat. When the rest of the expedition emerged saving the world a precious booty, among the numerous findings figured even three archaeological fragments discovered and crops by him: the Trilogy of the "Piccoli Suicidi". These pieces, according the most reliable estimates, dating back to the early history of the Object Theatre, and constitute the testimony more clear and elementary so far known of the existence of this genre.

Delicious performance ... I declare that hooked me from the beginning until the end ...
Jordi Jané. AVUI. 13/11/2000

Excellent for Rocamora with his proposal "Petits Suïcidis".
Santiago Fondevila. LA VANGUARDIA. 14/11/2000

Most radicalism, impossible. The humor and the poetic sensibility of the duo Molnár - Cañellas transforms the miniature in a large mansion inhabited by healthy vibrations.
Joan-Anton Benach. LA VANGUARDIA. 22/11/2002

One of the most original works of recent times. Original and amazing in its ability to do of something as simple, a work of great conceptual depth.
Javier Miranda. DIARIO DE CADIZ. 13/12/2003


Gyula and Carles

Love, loneliness, abandonment, death and time are the thematic of the show Pequenos Suicídios. We really are in front of an emissary of the delicacy. The actor Carles Cañellas is a messenger of the delicacy. His show is a recreation from the original of Gyula Molnár that for the experts is the first spectacle of Object Theatre. The work is divided into three acts. Two declared suicides and an announced genocide. In the first act an effervescent tablet, brilliantly animated, try to get close to a group of chocolates. The tablet arrives even to abandon its nature and dress the "wrapper" of the chocolates, but the differences are obvious. On being harassed by the group of chocolates he commits suicide by throwing itself into a glass of water (to perform this scene Cañellas reminds us of the best scenes with objects of Buster Keaton and Chaplin). In the second act suicide occurs because of an unfulfilled love between a match and a coffee seed. By losing his love the match is consumed in flames for not supporting the absence of his beloved. The third act is a reflection on the inexorable passage of time that brings us the uncomfortable metaphor of our transitory, of our condition of passengers in the world and the constant genocide plotted by time. The manipulations of the objects, the lighting, the music and the play of Carles Cañellas makes the audience drowns with the tablet, burns with the match and reflects on our condition as mere guests in the world. A brilliant show. A spectacle for to be applauding with the soul.
Marco Vasques. POETAS NO SINGULAR. 14/11/2010


FITO installs an intimate environment to create metaphors about human nature.

Precursor of the genre, the show “Pequenos Suicídios” did reflect about losses

Considered the fundamental work of this theatrical modality, "Pequenos Suicidios", of the Spanish Company Rocamora Teatre, addressed issues such as the feeling of belonging (and exclusion), love, loss, old age and time, using as scenic resources ground coffee, chocolates, matches and an Alka-Seltzer. Starring by the optimal Carles Cañellas, the show provokes a laugh tense, but, principally, a deep reflection about the ephemeral.
