‘Baserri’ is a journey across Basque Culture, creating parallelisms between the terrestrial (Baserri – the traditional Basque farmhouse), and the mythological (the Basque mythological creatures like Zampanzar and the creatures of the forest).
This work recovers a deeply rooted and strongly embedded way of existing (living, working and socialising), traditionally conceived in the Basque Country. The piece explores how, little by little, such outlines of existence can be dissipated to symbolise a break up with the established norm.
