"Winner of himself, the greatest expiration to desire can be"
The Quijote

On the occasion of the 400th death anniversary of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes was commissioned by the International Cervantino Festival to create the show "Quixote, winner of himself".
Through a playful montage, full of humor and lucidity, Don Quixote uses the evocative power of the book as a means of transport, which, opened at random, leads the audience to fascinating episodes of the imaginary of the masterpiece of the Spanish language. The famous gentleman, an unparalleled example of humanity to go beyond himself, inspires the audience with courage to achieve their noblest desires.

"If you do not try, how are you going to achieve it?"
Carlos Fuentes (in relation to Quijote)


Don Quixote de la Mancha has remained alive since it was conceived by Cervantes until our days. It asks if it has a life of its own or is an invention of its author. In the company of a young spectator, the ingenious knight-errant will be involved in a maelstrom of Cervantes and contemporary stories in which he will go after his greatest enemy, the sorcerer Festón, who has now become the Giant of Apathy that crushes the yearnings of the public.
Through the theater of objects and a virtuous acting performance. Quijote, winner of himself presents a bold, funny and moving adventure, in which the spectators become an essential part of the staging that will lead them to rediscover the joy of reading, to find new meanings about failure and recover the yearnings for the common good.

Thanks to the interdisciplinary conformation of the members, Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes has produced films, television programs, books, radio series and recordings.

Theater of Certain Inhabitants works with simple principles, which produce extensive consequences. Each assembly is addressed with specific risks and questions. We consider change as the primary tool for the development of the artistic spirit. This research is focused on each assembly to avoid repeating previous models and findings to the maximum. At the same time, he cultivates the polish, through long gestation processes, nourished by accumulated experience in management, production, creative team and interpreters. We dedicate ourselves to the fact that the scenic work falls absolutely on a multidisciplinary artist, actor-musician-dancer, in the use of his faculties to his full capacity.
