Written by
JAIME SALOM
one of the most important contemporary playwrights of Spain.

CASI UNA DIOSA/ ALMOST A GODDESS
is a dreamy trip through the artist’s
most important themes and images
emerging from his unique pictorial language:
TIME [soft clocks],
MONEY [“Avida Dollars”],
LOVE [“Un Chien Andalou”]
and SEX [conflict between hard and soft]
frame the surrealistic world of DALI and GALA
set on a peculiar stage melted by
the BLUE of the Mediterranean Sea and sky,
and the GOLD of sun and sand.


For both DALI and GALA:
TIME is MONEY,
but SEX is not necessarily LOVE.


The play focuses on the very creative
[and productive] paranoiac relationship
between the painter and his muse,
their turbulent love-hate marital relationship,
and their complex friendship and/or sexual encounters
with the French poet PAUL ELUARD,
the Spanish filmmaker LUIS BUÑUEL,
and the Broadway star of “JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR”.
