The Guixot de 8 ensemble returns to Prague with a brand new collection of toys. This time it's called Second Life.
Today, each toy has only one purpose and each command has only one result.
Without us noticing, our imagination diminishes. We therefore need to stimulate it. We have to look for a second life of everyday things that we no longer use, and which we have always thought had only one purpose.
It's a small revolution. In the past, children had one doll, with which they played in many different ways - they combed its hair, gave it a drink, dressed it. Today, different dolls are needed for these different activities. But maybe the time has come to these seemingly one-purpose things to serve much more.
Guixot de 8 is the first Catalan (probably worldwide) ensemble to turn interactive installations into street performances through "toys" created by Joan Rovira from collection yard materials. Toys thus transform the street into a new playful space for visitors of any age and skill. For example, they invents a new sport with the help of an old mattress. They use a basket of dishes for basketball. They make a bird out of a bicycle and a snake out of its chain. And they will create a racing circuit for thimbles on the ironing board.
