“La Pensión de las Pulgas” is a theater like you would never imagine.
It all began when one of the most promising young theater groups in Madrid rehabilitated the concierge’s house of an apartment building in “La Latina” and transformed it into a theater. That was “La Casa de la Portera”. After that challenge, they decided to go bigger. So they moved to “Huertas”, to the former home of one of the biggest stars of the early last century in Spain: La Bella Chelito, a famous cabaret singer and the first Spanish entrepreneur woman dedicated to theater business.
As they present themselves: it is a private and independent artistic initiative. They are discovering scenic arts through a new dimension as they are operating in an historic apartment.
I am a big fan of these new theatrical experiments, such as “Microteatro por dinero”, but I have never seen and felt anything like it. You can feel the emotion of the performers in front of you, while you as a silent audience also become part of the play. Their movements and gestures are so close that your reaction in here will be much deeper than in a traditional theater, it was a complete new thrilling experience for me.
