The company los 2play was created in 2006. Leticia García, Julián González, Óscar Santamaría and Cristina Solé decided in mid 2005 to share ideas for their first show “come back”. Directed by Leandre Ribera, “come back” would grow to be a show with all the necessary ingredients to be on tour for 6 years. The simplicity of its format, that fact that no words are used, the simple set up of its scenography, the high technical level of both acrobatics and comedy and, more than anything, the trust between its characters both off and on stage, is what has made “come back” such a highly successful show.
“Come back” has been performed at a multitude of festivals around the world, primarily street theatre festivals. It has toured many festivals, the most significant festivals in Europe.
