The Last One” - “Directed by Gema Galiana, THE LAST ONE is an intense and very physical exploration into the struggles between building up and the tearing down of society. It is a physical tour-de-force for the three actors, they are exciting to watch.

The last Kauaʻi ʻōʻō was a male, and its song was recorded for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Bioacoustics Research Program. The male was recorded singing a mating call, to a female that would never come. It died in 1987.

“Today’s electrifying performance by Gema Galiana and two other actors will surely remain etched in the memory of spectators for long for the manner it showcased the unique universal and timeless potential of the human body as a powerful tool of expression so as to stir emotions and responses in an audience.”

This is physical theater. The choreography and staging, though sometimes brutal and violent, is beautiful due to its authenticity and realism. None of the actors hold back. They are fearless.
