The character of the vampire, one of the romantics character by definition is, in this case, an eternal lover searching for love.
Nosferatu had several romances, but none of them resisted the passage of time (mainly because his lovers died very easy) even though, he does not despair and keeps searching for the person that will fill the emptiness left by his first love.
Tonight he has a date and prepares all so no detail can spoil the possibility of finding the love of his life (or his death); the music, the decoration, the wine, the candles, the perfect environment for the perfect date. But something unexpected spoils his plans, the villagers come to his door to stop the death of women in the area.
José Saramago said that our unique defense against death is love, in this sense searching for love for Nosferatu is literally the unique way for him to feel alive.
One after another, the vampire will be solving the problems that he faces. The hope of finding love again makes him forget that he will never overcome his biggest problem: himself.
Beginning with the character of Nosferatu, from the cinema and transform in clown style in a romantic monster with no much luck, we will go into the world of love, hope, loneliness, illusion and, most of all, failure.
In this show we will explore the necessity for people to love and feel loved as a principal force in life, it doesn’t matter so much to love a person but more simply the fact of love.
This solo show was created by Pablo Gomis and directed by Antón Valén to rediscover the myth again.
