Temptation
By Carles Battle

Pas de deux
By John Birke

Followed by talks with the authors

Temptation

Present-day Barcelona. In this emotional and political play by a Castellan author the stories of two immigrants become entangled with that of a young Spaniard. All three make grave mistakes and ultimately find themselves in the midst of a terrible tragedy. By means of skilful dramaturgic means a maelstrom of tension is developed until the bitter end.

Pas de deux

Sex and the city. Pas de deux is a high-tempo play about relationships, from the first conversation, the first date, the first night, and what comes afterwards. HE and SHE try to live up to ideals or, alternatively, to do everything differently. Thoughts become part of the dialogue in a clever play on the clichés surrounding sexual roles.
