If God created the world in seven days, at the Teatre Gaudí in Barcelona there are five days, between Wednesday September 21 and Sunday 25, to delve into the poetic universe of David Jou, who comes to life in From chaos to l'èxtasi at the Gaudí Theater in Barcelona.
"It's a poetry and dance show based on my poems about science, art and religion," explains the author, before pointing out: "The combination of dance and poetry, with a touch of humor, is original and curious."
With the stage direction of Jordi Coromina and Francesc Bravo, this unique proposal aims to contribute to "building bridges between science and the humanities, between technology and the arts, between knowledge and spirituality, between individualism and planetary consciousness", that "it is one of the cultural tasks of our time".
To do this, it proposes "an artistic reflection on the various ways of knowing: mythical, religious, scientific, artistic".
And it is that, as specified in the presentation of the show, "the chaos that the Greek myths explain to us is linked to the creation that exists in the sacred writings and that speak of a cosmos that reason wants to end up deciphering with the use of science, but that we can only express with art".
David Jou (Sitges, 1953) is a physicist and poet. Professor of Physics of Condensed Matter at the UAB, honorary doctorate from the University of Girona and recognized researcher in thermodynamics of irreversible processes, he is the author of more than thirty books of poetry and fifteen essays. From chaos to l'èxtasi is an opportunity to discover his work from a theater stage.
