Federico León: Las ideas
  • Las Ideas stages the intimacy of a creative process. Federico León and Julian Tello, the Argentine writer/director duo behind Las Ideas, are seated with their laptops, notebooks, and a projector at a ping-pong table. Blurring the lines between reality and fiction, the audience watches as the two engage in a constant exchange – a ping-pong – of ideas and theories for the show taking place. The viewer is invited to follow this process in real time from within: how hypotheses come up, and which mechanisms are activated to put them into practice. What is an actual part of their lives and what belongs to the artistic experience is unclear; the ideas analyzed, observed, and confronted on stage may in fact become actual working material. Performance is in Spanish with subtitles. Performances take place in the MCA’s Edlis Neeson Theater.
