''Always with an eye on the laughs, the quartet wickedly pushes serious questions of identity and happiness within today's shifting social landscapes.''
- Nick Awde, The Stage
So you think you're a unique individual. But are you ever truly free from the tyranny of the crowd?
ATRESBANDES takes us on a wild ride in All In, blending striking visuals, physical theatre and absurdist text, to present this darkly playful exploration of the human condition.
Through vignettes set in disparate worlds—incorporating dictatorships, nightclubs, national anthems, education and self-help manuals—All In offers different incarnations of how we encounter seemingly harmless systems of social control. Everyday situations take unexpected turns into the absurd and poignant, linked by the common thread of an outsider who is subjected to pressures to conform, but seeks nonetheless to assert his or her independence and freedom.
ATRESBANDES is a young theatre company from Barcelona, which has rapidly established its reputation as creators of sharp, perceptive contemporary theatre influenced by an enormous variety of disciplines such as visual arts and philosophy.

They have won numerous awards including First Prize and Audience Prize at BE Festival 2012 for Solfatara, and Best Direction at Skena Up 2014 in Kosovo for Locus Amoenus.
The company was formed by Mònica Almirall Batet, Miquel Segovia Garrell and Albert Pérez Hidalgo in 2008 with the aim to question everything around them, following their belief that doubt and uncertainty are as important as mutual understanding.
