Theatre Company trajectory
Zenica is the first work of the company SidesOut, which was founded in 2012.
In its incessant search of the aspects that are left out, in June 2016 the company has released in Madrid and in Malaga this theatre project whose essence it`s independence, from the origin until its representation that took place in a hairdresser of the Madrid neighborhood of Lavapiés (L`Átelier de Lavapiés), in a creative roof-space of Malaga (La Azotea de Mármoles) and in a second hand clothing store (Flamingos Vintage Kilo Málaga) propitiating the dissemination of culture in the true nerve centers of the cities: the neighborhoods.
The hallmark of this company is the search for ideas and projects that escape from generalities specifying them also in an alternative way. At the time of its production we resort to the closest talent and the most independent. That is why the result became a work full of personality, feeling and truth. Zenica has been selected by the Maf – Málaga de Festival for its programming of 2017 where it has been represented in La Cochera Cabaret theatre inside of the activities programmed by the Festival anteroom Malaga Festival of Spanish Cinema.
Currently, the company finds working on his second project: “The vacuum also takes its place”.
