Copi i Ocaña al purgatori
Author: Marc Rosich
The playwright Copi and Ocaña, the painter and “queen” of Barcelona’s Ramblas, were linked by the same wild and explosive vision of life and desire. Their different ways of being in a markedly heterosexual society and the constant struggle to be heard in a world which was against them were the real spark, the real combustible that fuelled their creation. The play reunites the two men after death, in a beyond of fable, with Pier Paolo Pasolini as arbiter. A small dramatic toy to present the most human and intimate side of the two artists. And also a panoramic vision of an era very often forgotten: the wild Barcelona of the explosive seventies.
