“The balance cannot be more positive, the result is so joyful and attractive. Eva and María, on stage have a freshness and a vitality that is contagious, opening the audiences mind to curiosity and desire leading them to the true source in life”. Luis Muñoz Díez – Tarántula, Revista Cultural”.
Premiered at PKMÑ and performed at The Imparables Festival 2016 in Nave 73, Madrid (Spain).
We wanted to talk about love as it has so much relevance at our age, and also to talk about darkness which is so remote. We wanted to talk about exhaustion which is so present in everyday life, but also to talk about the other person, because we were creating a piece with them. We wanted to talk about fear, the futile attempt, the search for identity and my mum’s lentil soup. Most of all, we wanted to talk about the experience of not winning a karaoke kit to sing Mari Trini’s hits. We wanted to talk about to talk about all this, finding each other in the darkness, while looking for THE LIGHTS.

Originally founded in 2015 in Madrid (Spain), Yellow Collective is an experimental live-arts and theatre-dance company which create unique and intimate pieces that challenge and provoke today’s audience’s beliefs and values. The aim is to strip away superficial theatricalities to emphasise the relationship between the performer and the audience members. Having an active collaboration with the community as the central axis of their work in latest years.
The company was created thanks to the support of PKMÑ, which provided a work space for us to develop an explorative investigation which became a multidisciplinary 60-minute piece. This piece, THE LIGHTS, was premiered at the same venue in January 2016. After a successful first run, the production was selected to be part of “Imparables” (experimental theatre festival for new artists in Spain).Afterwards, the company moved to London to develop P.A.T.S. in collaboration with Swedish director Johan Bark, which was premiered in London at The Lighthouse Sharing on 2017. Later on, the show toured around Europe at festivals such as Dreams Before Dawn in Paris, Teatro do Festa in Lisbon, Camden Fringe in London and Birmingham Fest in Birmingham. In 2018, Eva moved to Belgium and developed ‘We do not know how to dance’ with the support of Het Entrepot and KASK, in collaboration with Les Ballets C de la B and Danspunt. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DANCE premiered in May 2018 at Het Entrepot in Brugge (BE), as part of the Double Bill Night. It was also programmed to be performed later on, the same month at Eskimofabrik in Ghent (BE). The Portuguese’s version was premiered at Setubal’s International Theater Festival, in Portugal the same year.
The company is currently in Spain developing their new piece.
