Sold out. A sold out concert with an audience of zero people. Though, what really depletes a room is stage fright… it depletes those who suffer from it.
That stage fright that paralyzes and creates anxiety and destroys the ego and kills performances. But what if the art of melody could be done in the void? Could this emptiness become everything? Better yet, the emptiness would become everything. Period. If a tree falls in a forest but noone is there to hear it, does it exist? It exists as much as we can be the first to witness our own talent. In this show where the silence of nature is the only audience for the music that lies within our soul, the fear of acting, and singing, dissipates, unlocking borders and exhausting all our limitations to create a concert that is a blockbuster. Even if only for empty chairs. Photography by Javier Castán. Styling by Francisco Ugarte.
