Introduction to the project
On the Way to the Sawmill is a text in form of monologues and it talks about the dark side of human beings, our individual miseries, but also about those mistakes and empty aspects of our societies… our confusions and the abuses we made individually or as collectives and its consequences. The play is conformed by three monologues (two in English, and one in Spanish). The first monologue of this play was presented in August 2017 at the Center for Performance Research in New York played in English by Marco Magoa and the Indian actor TJ Krishnan and it was supported by the Embassy of Spain in Washington and the Institute Cervantes in NY. This text has been published by PIGMALIÓN in 2017.
