Él Vino en un Barco is a show based on the songs that became our soundtrack in the 40s and after the Civil War. The folk song known as “copla”.
These songs had an enormous impact -mainly on the radio- and became sentimental educators at a time of deep repression. The show claims songs that were stigmatized for a long time associated with Franco’s dictatorship.
Quintero, León and Quiroga among others explained dramatic stories that were theatre pieces about passionate, tragic and irreverent loves. Stories that talked about us. About all that remains essentially human.
