His Museum of Fiction proposes a dialogue regarding the shift that dramatic action can provoke in a museum-collection-conservation-exhibition-time system. By challenging fiction’s temporal-spatial limits, it tries to find a possible “museumification”, or a unique way to keep the dramatic construction for the present and future collective memory. At the same time, it frees the spectator from their traditional passivity in order to redirect them to a founding role in the creation of dramatic action.

The first piece of Museum, EMPIRE, is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth. This version, which takes place in post-dictatorship, nineties Spain, reveals fiction as political and social mediation tool, creating a mix between the entertainment industry, the current mechanisms of power, and the rage caused by the clash between tradition and globalization.
