Sílvia Pérez Cruz Investigates Beyond Music In Impossible Genre
Sílvia Pérez Cruz investigates beyond music in ‘Impossible genre’. The singer offers at the Lliure a different and complete vision of her album ‘Farsa (Impossible Gender)’ made with first swords from different disciplines.
Sílvia Pérez Cruz has never liked limits or divisions between different genres or disciplines. For the singer-songwriter, the world of art is one. The more he has collaborated with dance, film, theater, painting or any other specialty artists, the more connections he has found between his art and music.
As a result of these collaborations, his latest album ‘Farsa (Impossible Genre)’ emerged.who already presented solo and accompanied by a band. Now, he offers at the Teatre Lliure (Sala Fabià Puigserver, from 8 to 11) a different and complete vision with ‘Impossible Gender’.
The show goes beyond music and includes scenography by Sílvia Delagneau and Max Glaenzel, dramaturgy by Pablo Messiez, movement supervision by Elena Córdoba and projections of 16 mm visual pieces by Adriana Vila Guevara, among others.
It is an ambitious proposal where it explores the difference between what we are and what we show . “I interpret the same songs as on the album but now it will be different because the proposal has nothing to do with it. Each one opens a door and the order is different,” says the singer and songwriter.
Strength and fragility
The show speaks of “the strength that we teach and the fragility that defines us.” It is like an entrance to his most intimate world, to his way of working and creating. “This proposal responds to the need to share with people from other disciplines what you know but also your doubts . It is a way to connect everything but it is something liquid”. Images, words, feelings and musical notes flow.

In the show she will be alone on stage. But her intention when she goes on tour with him is to invite artists from different disciplines to join her wherever she performs. It will be one more way to enrich this very personal proposal.
“Silvia takes us to different worlds through words and songs and between those worlds new relationships are created,” explains Argentine director Pablo Messiez, who has already worked with music and theater in ‘Las canciones’, which was staged at the Lliure .
Better not to reveal much more and be surprised by what Sílvia Pérez Cruz and company have prepared with so much care.
