Theatre of documentary objects

"La melancolía del turista" is the decomposition of the instants and objects that give shape to the idea of a paradise, a gallery of mirages on what lies behind a sublime landscape that no longer exists or that never existed. Created and produced by Shaday Larios and Jomi Oligor, the work questions the life of the images associated with leisure and takes a critical look at the imagery of vacation.

Melancholy arises here as a state of awareness that happens in that moment of suspension of inertia in life, and that allows us to reinvent ourselves. It addresses the breakdown, that deliberation that decomposes the processes of establishing oneself as a foreigner; the impulse that places us in a situation of self-criticism during the typical paraphernalia of a trip, what happens to a person who no longer recognises the place in which he lives due to gentrification, the transformations of desire when comparing imageries between cities in decline that were once tourist paradises, and the questioning of the materiality that tries to pre-establish the idea of recollection with souvenirs and photos.

Microscopía Teatro is a Mexican laboratory group for stage research that works with atmospheres of the intimate through objects, models, furniture, toys, mechanisms and shadows. It also implements schemes for social inclusion and stage philosophy through the values of miniaturisation and the dissociative powers of the theatre of objects.
Oligor is a company dedicated to the poetics of objects which was created on the basis of the show called Las tribulaciones de Virginia. In 2012 they went into partnership to explore the documentary possibilities of the subject matter.
