Están borrachos de poder desde hace siglos, milenios… borrachos de poder. A duras penas pueden mantenerse en pie. Tropiezan ridículos. Muchas veces agonizan sobre un poder conquistado a la fuerza, otras veces son los mediocres los que disfrutan a la sombra del poderoso, a la sombra del abuso y la sangre. Una sombra que suele ser cómoda durante un tiempo. Este es el instante de dos mujeres separadas por siglos de historia, pero unidas por un poder distinto. La poderosa reina Cenobia rodeada de hombres traidores, frente a la ambiciosa Zenócrate, feliz, ciega de poder y  privilegios conseguidos por su violento marido Tamerlano.

Hemos llegado a Marte. Un robot nos envía imágenes desde el planeta rojo. Otra vez conquistamos lo imposible en el espacio, pero aquí en la Tierra no hay nada que conquistar, todo está perdido. Recibimos una señal… Zenócrate y Cenobia, exiliadas. Marco Magoa.

They are drunk of power since centuries, millenniums… they are drunk of power. They can hardly stand by themselves. Ridiculous, they almost fall. Most of the times they agonize on that power conquered with force, and sometimes the mediocre are the ones that enjoy on the shadow given by the powerful men, on the shadow of abuse and blood. A comfortable shadow for not so long. This is the instant of two women separated by centuries of history, but united by a different power. The powerful queen Zenobia surrounded by traitors and the ambitious Zenocrate, happy, blinded by power and privileges stolen by his husband Tamburlaine.

We have arrived to Mars. A robot sends us images from the red planet. Once again we conquer the impossible in the space, but here on the Earth there is nothing to conquer, everything is lost. We receive a signal… Zenocrate and Zenobia. (The Exiled)

 موسيقة

Opera Aria titled سلطة composed and signed by Marco Magoa.

منذ قرون، بل وآلاف السنين وهم يرغبون في السلطة حتى الثمالة.. يرغبون فيها حتى الثمالة. يستطيعون بالكاد الوقوف على أقدامهم جراء آلام شديدة، يتعثرون بطريقة سخيفة. في كثير من الأحيان يتصارعون حتى الموت على سلطة سُلِبَت بالقوة، وفي أحيان أخرى الجهلاء هم من يستمتعون في ظل صاحب السلطة، في ظل الظلم والدم، وعادةً ما يكون ظلًا مريحًا لفترة طويلة. إنها اللحظة الخاصة بامرأتين تفصلهما قرون من التاريخ، لكن تربطهما سلطة مختلفة. الملكة زنوبيا صاحبة السلطة المحاطة برجال خائنين، أمام الطموحة زنوكريت، السعيدة، التي أعمتها السلطة والامتيازات التي حصل عليها زوجها العنيف تامبورلين.

وها قد وصلنا إلى المريخ، وهناك إنسان آلي يرسل لنا صورًا من الكوكب الأحمر. ومرةً أخرى نغزو المستحيل في الفضاء، لكن هنا في الأرض لا يوجد ما نستكشفه، فالشعور بالهزيمة هو السائد. لقد وصلتنا إشارة: زنوكريت وزنوبيا في المنفى.

Introduction:The performance will be based on the plays Tamburlaine by Christopher Marlowe and La gran Cenobia by Calderón de la Barca.In the play Tamburlaine, the character of Zenocrate, the beautiful daughter of the king of Egypt, is taken by Tamburlaine as a prisoner out of her country after one battle. In the other play La gran Cenobia, the character of Zenobia, Queen of Palmira who has also conquered Egypt, is fighting against her enemies from Rome. Aureliano finally conquers Palmira and takes Zenobia surrended to Rome.Zenobia´s power and brave attitude, make her a target for some men. A target that must be eliminated. By the other hand Zenocrate falls in love with the terrible Tamburlaine and his power.Both women share a motivation that is as much political as emotional. The project:This is meant to be a multidisciplinary performance for Egyptian artists. The performance will be directed by the Spanish artist Marco Magoa and produced by the British Council, the embassy of Spain in Cairo and teatro4m.

During four weeks, two Egyptian actors, two Egyptian actresses and the Spanish artist will investigate different languages of performance. The work will be focus on the personality of these two women, their relationship with power, love and beauty and the effects of power in their life and the life of the men around them.

New monologues in Arabic, English and Spanish will be written as a result of the investigation during the rehearsals. These texts will be said during the performance.

 

The performance:

An open space, like an art installation welcomes the audience. There will be at least three areas where actions will take place; sometimes of these actions will occur at the same time. The audience will be able to move around and choose where they want to be and what is more interesting for them at any moment. Sometimes the artists will be the ones that move and accommodate the audience in specific areas.
