The Performance

 In Once Five Years Pass Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca brings together elements of realism and farce, romantism and cynicism, poetry and prose. The characters experience love and rejection, joy and fear, life and death. In a dreamlike, surreal atmosphere the author speaks of a symptom of our time, the maņana disease, the act of delaying full engagement with life and viewing tomorrow (maņana) as the time when real life will begin. Through the use of songs, dances, puppetry and acrobatics, The WInter Project reveals the greatest danger of the maņana disease: that along with postponing suffering and hardships we may also choose to delay our meeting with life's greatest possibilities of joy and fulfillment.
