LAS KELLYS // Tonina Matamalas and Carme Gomila

Project Description

Las Kellys, a play on las que limpian, “the ones who clean”, is the name chosen by a group of hotel chambermaids in Spain who organized to fight for their rights. Over the fifteen minutes they have to clean a room, the same time that the short lasts, they discuss the manifold forms of invisible work largely performed by women, migrants, and the precarious.
Through a poetic approach, the audience learns more about them, their dreams and fears, and how the motto of “the personal is political” applies to their lives.
