Sinopsi

Bomber(s) is much more than a play. Love, desire, consent, abuse, contempt... Bomber(s) brings us face to face with a reality we can all identify with in one way or another. When you lose the power of language and saying NO is unconceivable, abuse of power comes into play.

A play that questions the social and sexual roles of men and women here and now and illustrates the complexity of love and sexual relationships and the importance of consent and agreement between equals.

But how can you say “no” if you can’t find the words to do so?

The critics say…

The portrayal of the girl is both thorough and credible — credibility accentuated by the brilliant performance of the young Mariantònia Salas, from Manacor (Mallorca). […] A hard show, the kind that questions human nature, splendidly directed by Jordi Vila. Santi Fondevila I Timeout.cat

The story and dramaturgical approach is a delight thanks to the performers. And the work of Mariantònia Salas and Salvador Miralles is simply flawless. She has already received an award in the Balearic Islands and deserves many more. Martí Figueras I El Núvol

Bombers does well in steering away from Manichaeism (good/bad) and euphemisms. It calls things by their proper name, but from a position of ambiguity. Like the main element, which is distorted and used to support different sides: the truth is not balanced […] Jordi Bordes I Recomana.cat

M. Salas and S. Miralles portray two complex and subtle characters, without overdoing it in any way. They accurately develop their characters with all the ambiguities needed to grant them truth. Iolanda G. Madariaga I Recomana.cat
