On 20th April 1992, the World Expo of Seville opened. It was an emblematic event along with the Olympic Games in Barcelona, in a country, Spain, that was being presented to the international community as a successful and modern country. A future global economic power. Only six months later, a financial crisis would cause an important recession and rapid employment destruction.
That night, the news bring together all the government’s efforts to provide an euphoric rhetoric which intensifies data and numbers to give the event a relevant dimension. A semantic horizon where a hopeful and excited population was reflected, sure to have left behind the underdeveloped, backward and miserable country they had belonged to. At the Expo 92 we could see “the world in its entirety, as it is today and as it will be in the future.” Han surcado el cielo centenares de palomas is a stage reenactment of a news bulletin, starring Luis Tausía and Jesús Fragoso.
Han surcado el cielo centenares de palomas es una adaptación escénica de un telediario completo protagonizada por Luis Tausía y Jesús Fragoso.
