Everybody who comes to see it, falls in love #esoesasí (that´s just the way it is)
A romantic comedy about something that we have all felt, love that you don’t know will go on but you live as if it will last forever.
Amores Minúsculos is a play adapted from a comic by Alfonso Casas and a work that achieves something very special; making the audience fall in love. Knowing smiles, kisses and everyday hugs captivate audiences that laugh, cry and are thrilled with every performance.
It was an adventure that was meant to last 2 weeks on the alternative circuit but critical and public success exceeded all expectations. With sell-out performance after sell-out performance, Amores Minúsculos was a candidate for Best Breakout Play in MAX Prizes. A show that, after thrilling audiences in Nave 73 and Teatro Lara, continued fulfilling dreams in the historical Nuevo Apolo theatre and soon after in Barcelona, the city where the original comic book is set, in the great Club Capitol in the heart of Las Ramblas.
An emotional rollercoaster that continues on tour all over Spain and anywhere where people are willing to fall in love.
Characters you can identify with. This is the story of Jaime, Nacho, Eva, Laura, Carlos and David… but it also could be yours or anyone longing for love and living everyday as if it were the last.
Amores Minúsculos is the story of Jaime, who aspires to become a novelist but lives waiting for something to happen. Eva turns out to be that something, one of those special girls you only meet once in life, who could disappear as easily as she appeared.
Amores Minúsculos is also the story of Nacho, who spends the afternoons drawing passers by, in particular David, who he is attracted to despite knowing nothing about him.
And this is also the story of Laura, an accountant who starts dating Carlos, a somewhat famous singer, actor and DJ. She will soon find out if there’s something meaningful under that pile of nothing.
“One of the most beautiful plays I’ve seen in a long time”
– Aldo Ruíz
“An utterly marvellous tsunami of emotions”
“A vitamin that provides you energy, emotion and positivity”
– Neil DC
Amores Minúsculos brings to the theatre Alfonso Casas’ comic, published by Edicions de Ponet. An adaptation whose biggest challenge was bringing to life original sketches, transforming them into emotional scenes able to captivate the audiences from the stage.
Giving soul to the characters, involving the audience in the plot from the very beginning without neglecting the intimacy and inviting audiences to become part of this touching journey through an endless series of feelings, succeeds in making Amores Minúsculos a highly emotional play.
After all, that’s all that matters: feeling moved by the brilliant combination of two artistic pieces of work; the comic and the theatre experience with every kind of emotion thrown in… just like life and love itself.
Although he defines himself as an illustrator and profesional time-waster, he is one of the most budding talents of his generation after ten years working as an author and illustrator in the marketing and publishing sectors. Casas has contributed to campaigns for Reebok, ING and Vodafone and his works are published on the pages of El País, TENMAG and other international media outlets such as HelloMrMAg.
Apart from Amores Minúsculos, Casas has published several comics and books such as Te lo doy no, en todo caso te lo cambio (Ponent) and No Sin Mi Barba (Lunwerg).
Nowadays, he continues to create his special universe based on the famous illustrations published on his social networks. He is currently working on his upcoming book, which we hope to fall in love with again.
“I’m not a good match but I’m going to love you madly”
“Well, I believe in ´the one´ but it is not meant for everyone”
“Love is finding someone who puts up with your eccentricities… and vice versa”
“I believe in Prince Charming… but I’m not gonna kiss frogs until he shows up!”
“Endless love doesn’t exist so live your life to the fullest”
“I´ve got everything in boxes. My heart has moved out”
