Theater Great Hall

La Respiración

Alfredo Sanzol

Saturday 04

20 hours


95 minutes




from 8 to 25 euros

Alfredo Sanzol is one of our most inspired authors/directors. Over the last few years his theatre has been deeply grounded in confession. The death of his father gave rise to La calma mágica. Another trauma lies behind La respiración: the break up with his partner of 15 years, which left him downcast. Writing and directing this work was a catharsis that allowed him to get his breath back. Far from flooding us with a tear-filled drama, Sanzol makes the most of this situation in order to become stronger and give us a life-giving and optimistic message, as well as offering us a revealing portrait of relationships in our era. Thanks to Sanzol, pain will no longer prevent us from breathing, the first step needed in order to overcome any adversity.

A production by the Teatro de la Abadía and La Zona.
