Listen with the eyes. See, touch, reflect, experiment. The object found is an entrance for generating individual, spiritual and imaginative experiences. This is how the Biblioteca de cuerdas y nudos (Library of strings and knots) works, where the plastic arts, writer, editor, theatre producer, set designer and schoolteacher José Antonio Portillo, invites us to enter a mysterious mobile library, a circular wooden structure that houses unpublished manuscripts, texts, musical scores, designs and objects found in the rubbish, and placed into cylinders full of messages on strings and knots. Sensitive and moving, this absolutely original proposal has been amazing audiences in some of the main European festivals and theatres for the last fifteen years. It is a dialogue of silence between the gaze of the spectator and the objects that inhabit this framework. Time has gradually deposited events and objects, fragments of life, among its shelves. As archaeologists of the 20th century, spectators can gradually take them out and reveal the stories they contain. Over time, they take the shape of the narrative space that they can inhabit and be inhabited in different spaces and by spectators of different ages.
