“Everything looks small from here!” utters one of the characters. We are on the terrace of a forty-nine-storey skyscraper where the employees and managers of a large financial company with a zero-tolerance for smoking sneak out to have a quick cigarette.

They get to the terrace by lift or the safer option of the backstairs to avoid getting caught. They meet out there furtively and successively in twos, threes or fours: the administrative head and the computer programmer, the blonde, brunette, redhead and brown-haired secretaries, the executive director and the courier. By chance, affinities or necessity, the groups mingle and dialogues take form, alternating light-hearted comments, intimate confessions and existential babbling, all in the tone of those great comedies in which the characters are on the verge of the nervous breakdown... The stifling heat –there’s been a drought for the last two years– and the helicopters criss-crossing the sky add an apocalyptic dimension to the burlesque ambiance of this post-modern tableau.
After staging Nikolai Gogol, Marcel Aymé and Federico García Lorca with the Troupe, Lilo Baur has chosen a contemporary Spanish author, Sergi Belbel, drawn to the quality of his dialogues, which offer incredible scope for the actors. At the top of this tower, a symbol of the exercise of power, a fantasy of falling, the terrace is a zone of defensive retreat within the realm of restriction, one she imagines as “a space to think and a small island of emotions”.
