Multidisciplinary performance where scale models, text, live music, acting and audiovisuals bring to life the story of a couple in a hypothetical future world.

Climate change is the scenario to which society will have to adapt, developing new spaces and new perspectives, sacrificing freedom in exchange for security. In a world in which resources are scarce and surviving implies the loss of individual freedom, human beings live with the consequences of our current level of affluence and despite this continue to live in their own cocoon, forgetting that they always have the chance to change.
Five Lines tells us about human nature through a couple’s relationship, supporting the idea that the obsession to pursue our dreams does not necessarily lead us to a better life. Love and the will to live are the crucial elements of this adventure and will develop to the extreme.

In Five Lines we claim the ironic persistence of hope even in the harshest situations, which allows us to imagine and sometimes create better worlds

Five Lines is a new hybrid creation by the Frau Trapp company and combines the language of theater and puppetry, audiovisual art, and live music in a
new performance form that we call Micro-Cinema-Theater. This is a very recent language that can also be referred to as live cinema because it brings together audiovisual and performing arts in one format. The term micro refers to the use of scaled sets and objects that, when filmed and projected, give the impression of being life-size.
In this way we can explore objects, sets and materials in a new dimension, creating coherent worlds in two or three dimensions that through music and manipulation come to life on the screen. Through software we edit all the video material live.



FRAU TRAPP Mina and Matthew met in 2016 in a Micro-Cinema-Theatre class. Both were deeply fascinated by the “mini-world” that can be shown on the big screen and decided to embark on a journey together. Since then they have performed together, created a street art show and together they run the cultural house Can Pink i Boogie in Mataró (Barcelona).
Five Lines is the show they had been planning to create for years and is finally seeing the light of day after the Covid19-related crisis. In the years 2020/22, in parallel with creation, they continued their education, Mina in set design and sculpture and Matteo in music.
