A House in Asia

Theatre / Live Video / Performance

The biggest manhunt in human history. Cowboys and Indians. Planes and beer, Take That and Cheeseburgers.

A house in Pakistan, in which Osama Bin Laden is hiding with his family. Two life-sized models: one in North Carolina serves as a training camp for the American special unit, the Navy SEALs; the other in Jordan is the location for the American thriller ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘.

With its well-known style-mix of miniature models, live video projection, film and performance, texts, sounds and objects, the Barcelona-based theatre group Señor Serrano contrive a relentless post-9/11 Western in which reality and copy blur. The ensemble interlocks the story of Bin Laden’s house in Abbottabad and its two copies with that of the hunt for Moby Dick by Captain Ahab, who mutates into a sheriff and proclaims America’s historic mission in the voice of George W. Bush. The aim: the liquidation of Osama Bin Laden by Operation Geronimo.

Señor Serrano is a conceptional and aesthetic exception in the Spanish theatre landscape. Significantly influenced by cinema and visual art, the group creates stage realities with an enormous pull. In 2015 Señor Serrano won the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale.
