Abstract or Description:

This theatre piece is a site-specific parade that travels through the Running of the Bulls’ Route in Pamplona. The Running of the Bulls, part of the famous San Fermin Festivities, ends with bull fighting and death. This piece parallels the murder of the bulls with the murder of Nagore Laffage Casasola during the San Fermin Festivities in 2008 by José Diego Yllanes. The relationship between site and Nagore’s story are interwoven, creating symmetries and metaphors - providing a new point of view to this historic route. This piece addresses gender violence with the primary concept and intention being to give back Nagore’s voice and word - the voice José Diego Yllanes tried to silent.
