Premiere in Spain
Brussels, La Monnaie Opera House. Three actors working there meet three people near the end of their lives, and together they go backstage of the great Belgian Opera House on a journey through its most secret corners. They rehearse a play that we will never see. Three portraits on the threshold of death, without the need to step onto the main stage, tell of the tragedy of the body and the transfiguration by art.
His interests led him into the documentary field as director and director of photography. León studied film in the Brussels Institut Natonal Supérieur des Arts du Spectacle (INSAS) and has been working as photographer and videomaker with Wim Vandekeybus, Olga de Soto, Ana Torfs, Meg Stuart... His photographic works have been exhibited in Belgium and abroad. He created his first theatre production, Deserve, in collaboration with Simone Aughterlony at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2010 in Brussels.
