Raquel García-Tomás together with Victoria Szpunberg give voice to a grandmother that fights against the inevitable and resists being locked up by her relatives in a nursing home. They’ve told her that it’s best to take her there as a precaution, but she doesn’t want to hear about it. From her rocking chair, she prefers to relive memories of a bright past and prepares to accept death, which she only wants to be at home, among the furniture and objects that have accompanied her all her life.

This piece should have premièred at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in the autumn of 2020, but the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic meant that it could only be streamed. It is part of Sis Solos Soles, an Òpera de Butxaca i Nova Creació (ÒBNC) project which unites six monodramas for female voice and instrumentalist into a single performance. It was commissioned from six different librettist-composer teams.  While exploring the bowels of a theatre, the audience should discover, through a sort of intimate confession, the tales underlying the different voices which are trapped in their respective home environments.
