A wild musical combining a live string octet, an entirely new language and 6 international performers from Mexico, France, Japan and Iran, El Gallo portrays the challenges a composer and a group of singers face when trying to mount a performance in just 2 weeks. The original music theater work is the result of a collaboration between renowned director Claudio Valdés Kuri and British composer Paul Barker.
Mexico City-based Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes is led by internationally lauded director Claudio Valdés Kuri. In their 13-year career they have created more than 6 large scale productions and toured to prestigious festivals and venues, including Kunsten Festival des Arts (Brussels). Their artistic philosophy is grounded in risk and multidisciplinary investigations of entirely new projects. El Gallo is their long-awaited Seattle debut.
