Exilio | Performing arts

Exilio” is an original spectacle by the EUROM and Voodoo Productions documenting the experiences of exiles through a captivating fusion of sounds, words, and images. Crafted and performed by the actor Àlex Brendemühl and the soloist guitar player Nora Buschmann, under the direction of Lalo Garcia and the production of Txell Sabartés, the show stands as a testament to the resilience, creativity, and enduring spirit of those who have been forcibly displaced from their homelands.

Launched in 2020, this co-production has been viewed by over 2,000 people in Spain, France, and Germany and is now back on tour. Reach out to [email protected] to schedule a performance of the show in your community.



Drawing inspiration from pivotal periods such as the Spanish War and the Second World War, and shedding light on contemporary migrations through evocative audiovisual material, “Exilio” serves as a poignant exploration of the human cost of displacement. Through the voices of historical figures such as Albéniz, Blas de Otero, Lorca, Brecht, Vigilietti, and many others, the show invites audiences to delve into the shared experiences of exile and to honor the resilience of those who have been forced to leave their homes in different periods of our history and until nowadays. In a world where the echoes of past conflicts still reverberate, this beacon of remembrance illuminates the enduring quest for freedom, dignity, and belonging.

Since the Balkan Wars in the 1990s, there has been no major war conflict in Europe. Beyond terrorist attacks, we have lived away from the violence of wars, bloody hatred between peoples, ethnic groups or religions. From this “island” we cannot understand that in other places there are bombings, hunger, and marginalization that force people to knock on our doors asking for help; to cross the Mediterranean in search of a minimally decent life.

We forget that our parents or grandparents may have fled, leaving behind their homes, their memories, their lives, persecuted for their political ideas or their convictions. Perhaps today, there are also people in Spain, in Europe, in the world, who cannot express what they think or what they feel, and are paying with prison or exile the consequences of having done so.

We believe it is necessary to speak about those who had to leave their land or their homeland, this very abstract concept that some poets manage to describe with great precision. Retrieve the documentation, photography, drawings, and sounds left to us by those who had to cross the ocean or just the Pyrenees. Those real or imaginary borders that cause loneliness and oblivion.
