Synopses:

We’re brainless. We don’t know what we’re doing. But we want to do it with all our hearts.

A philosopher and a botanist will help me share my solo journey experience.
Or maybe it will be only an excuse to honour all those women who took freedom on their own.

“As you set out for Ithaka, hope your road is a long one”.

Freedom is Something You Take is an intimate and multidisciplinary theatre creation on what it means to travel alone as a woman. It’s a journal, a confession, a sigh and a shout to the air, full of movement, shadows and music.

COLECTIVO SOBERANAS, Theatre Company

We are a collective because we are not just us.
At the foot of creation, we are also Abel and Guille and Sofía and Victoria, and who knows how many more will come.
Between lines and shadows, we are also Jeanne and Virginie and Penelope and Mary and Amelia.
We are all those who, with their testimony, their drive and their fear, have encouraged us to speak up and move, occupying our space.

We are sovereign because we inhabit ourselves in our own right.
Whole and shared, trench and refuge. Sovereignty is the oasis we have created by taking the reins.
We proclaim ourselves self-government, resoundingly and humbly ours.
