HORTZMUGA EVENTS

HORTZMUGA EVENTS

For the last 24 years, the Hortzmuga Teatroa theatre company has been performing a multitude of events for a wide range of institutions, businesses and corporations. Here is a small selection of our work.

nautilus

nautilus

is an old ship docked in an unknown port after a voyage of thousands of leagues, and in its hold is a treasure chest filled with sights and sounds which last came ashore at Bilbao’s Maritime Museum on the occasion of White Night 2015.

NAUTILUS is a voyage to the depths of the Maritime Museum; a voyage through its galleries, sailing up Bilbao’s estuary on its history and a vast array of amazing objects; a voyage planned to surprise and speak to the spectators through direct and different communicative channels.

NAUTILUS is a fascinating experience where theatre, music and light combine superbly with objects on display in the Maritime Museum’s exhibitions.

On our voyage we have been joined by Tarima Soluciones Artísticas, Ibon Aguirre, Agus Calavera, Tor Magoa, Shakti Olaizola, Natxo Montero, Ander Unibaso, Izpiñe Soto, Arantza Goikoetxea, Argia Gardeazabal, Alex Antúnez, Raúl Cancelo, Museo Marítimo Bilbao and Bilbao 700.

 

OLENTZERO

OLENTZERO

Commissioned by the Department of Tourism and Fiestas of the City of Bilbao, Hortzmuga Teatroa designed the show entitled OLENTZERO. With the aim of bringing the tale of the Olentzero up-to-date to attract audiences in Vizcaya, the theatre company created a show fusing the traditional and the contemporary, where the Olentzero, Mari Domingi, Lamia and the Galtzagorris, accompanied by musicians and three gigantic structures stroll down Bilbao’s Gran Vía, finishing up in grand theatrical style in and around the Arriaga Theatre.

THE HOSTS

THE HOSTS

In an attempt to take traditional theatrical visits one step further, Hortzmuga Teatroa dreamed up, designed, created and produced the show entitled “The Hosts” –  a dramatised tour through the history of Bilbao and its estuary valley where the peoples are the sole protagonists. The main ingredients of this show, made-to-measure for Bilbao, are its imaginative staging and its visual realism, not forgetting the close collaboration with the many professionals involved, from historians, graphic designers and creators of video-makers, to composers and costume designers, all of whom have worked in close collaboration to make this ambitious project a reality.
