In Manes the Spanish ensemble La Fura dels Baus looks at basic human nature and attitudes. This performance, physical and extreme, was first staged in 1996. In a motorised and techn- ological society without dignity La Fura dels Baus sought to draw the viewer to perceive the animalistic and instinctive, the very essen- ce of human existence. They are now staging the piece again because they believe that in today's society this shift of focus is once again necessary. Without a linear story line several scenes are presented simultaneously: different worlds share time and space – and you, the audience, wander in their midst. It is impossible to re- main passive in relation to what is happening in the room, both physically and mentally. Manes is gothic in essence, free from super- ficial aesthetics, while the pillars of humanity – birth, death, sex and food – are in focus in a conglomeration of emotions and experiences. Intimacy and privacy are invaded and presen- ted for all to see – everything that is usually kept concealed from public view for cultural reasons. The unique, eccentric and innovative langua- ge, style and aesthetics of La Fura dels Baus have become eponymous in theatrical circles, bringing substantial international success and influence.
