They number in the thousands, murdered by their husbands, ex husbands, boyfriends, and fiancés. Killed by men. On average, two women are murdered every week in Spain. With this macabre statistic as a starting point, Agnes Mateus and Quim Tarrida incite a reaction from themselves and from us against this revolting societal and domestic violence. Rebota, Rebota y en tu cara explota (It Bounces, It Bounces, And Then It Blows Up In Your Face) takes to task not only the femicides but also breaks down the stereotypes implicit in the female roles in theatre and cinema. The objective is to fight against indifference and to ring the alarm.
Amid a Neopop set, Agnes Mateus, alone on stage in her spangled sequined pants, backed by deafening techno music, chants the insults that women suffer daily. Drawing from her own rage, she delivers a relentless performance that is an essential denunciation. A denunciation essential the world over.
