Discover and show the diversity and plurality allows us to get closer to sexual liberation in all its manifestations and to understand and recognize ourselves as one among the other species that live in this world
With Birds do it, and so do whales and fleas, Obskené Company deals with the theme of reproduction and sexuality of animals. A piece where attraction, mating and dynamics of animals in their relationships allow us to understand, recognize and respect the diversity and plurality of our environment. Aware of the difficulty of showing on stage the behaviour of other species, we propose a space of fascination that we imagine full of humor and irony.

About the company
The company Obskené was founded in 2008 by Constanza Aguirre, Judith Pujol and Ricard Soler with a view to embarking on risky and innovative artistic projects. Their creation is based on an exploration of the different disciplines that form the performing arts. They refuse to accept that text, actor or director alone may reign supreme, rather understanding the performing arts as teamwork, from the very beginning of the creative process, in which each member of the team works in his or her speciality for the collective good.
The name “Obskené” refers to “obscene”, a word whose Greek root means “off” (ob-) “stage” (-skene). The Obskené company shows on stage what was formerly hidden behind the rear curtain, seeking to present “obscene”, shameless creativity.
