¨El saludo¨ -Requena, Spain 2018.
This wall is located next to the main Theater of Requena.
We could understand that what used to be a street is now a stage. The man on the street is an actor who seems to settle for mediocre roles. We are not authentics, we can presume to live a state similar to freedom, since being nothing it allow us to become anything. Be taken into account but keep hiding our true face. It is always a game, a game of and between appearances.
The study of roles has a long history in Western thought. One of the oldest Western ideas about human society is to conceive society itself as a theater.
This image represents the greeting that an actor makes at the end of a play. Every day that takes place on the street gives rise to a new play in which each and every one of us turn out to be a protagonist.
