El Principi d’Arquimedes (2011)
Author: Josep Maria Miró
Jordi, the coach of a children’s swimming group, hugs and kisses one of the children, who is crying because he is afraid of the water and doesn’t want to take his back float off. Jordi’s gesture, however, will cause complaints from some of the parents and give rise to a spiral of mistrust that will bring to the surface all kinds of suspicions, prejudices and fears.
El Principi d’Arquimedes is a play about human relations and contemporary fears. The work was produced with a creation grant from the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes (Catalan Letters Institute) and won the 36th Born Prize for Theatre.
