Ni una más
Ni una más is a monologue about violence against women which, for once, tackles the theme not from the victim’s point of view, but from the perspective of someone close to the victim. Cesca, a physiotherapist in a women’s shelter, is devastated by the killing of her friend and former patient Luisa, beaten to death by her ex-partner. Cesca asks herself if, by killing him, she might find again a meaning in her life. Framed by a prologue of voices collected on the street and an epilogue giving a new meaning to statistics, Ni una más skillfully uses the visual universe to stage a story that, like an ancient tragedy, transposes the singular experience into the realm of the universal, and, as such, haunts the spectator well beyond the theatre.
