In Don Ramón María del Valle-Inclán. Through Ramón Gómez de la Serna the audience witnesses a double portrait, the portraitist and the portrayed, the two Ramones. A musical monologue in which history and life blend with mastery, wit, talent and humor.
Don Ramón Gómez de la Serna travels into the life, work and soul of Valle-Inclán. He allows us to observe his tools of analysis, instruments of dissection and aesthetic canon. He invites us to travel a path closer to the intimacy and daily reality of the author.
The stylistic and vital sum of these two literary creators will allow us to understand a good part of the Spanish avant-garde of the 20th century.

There are writers who decide to be writers in order to share their way of weaving with syllables, words, acoustics or ways of looking. There are others who first need to live an inner cry to turn their experience into words.
This is the story of a Madrid that no longer exists, a Madrid that was born at the turn of the century after the loss of hope. But it is also the history of bohemia, of the avant-garde, of painting and music.
It is the story of a dialogue between echoes, phantasmagoric, from the absences. A reflection on the validity of literature to understand life. A show that does not prevent us from intuiting, understanding, tuning in, vibrating, feeling the echoes of an impressive era, of a time when art and life went hand in hand. Maybe that era will be alive among us again.
