To travel at light speed and to stop sharply. To be as William A. Fuqua (from Corpus Christi, Texas), Guiness record of stillness in five occasions. To be as fast as Superman, to invert the Earth rotation, to stop time to save Lois and to have another bath in a Toi. To start from the end, to come back to the beginning or stay suspended, timeless. To lose time as philosophy of life. Like stones.


Como piedras is a reflection around the passing of time and memory that mixes reality with fiction and plays with real time, the time of the memory and that of the show.


Three actors share a particular photo album where the spectator can see him or herself represented. In order to do so they use videos, the dramatization of their own past, the incursion of “real” people within the scene –the actors´ own parents-, with the objective of building a character from their own selves and their relationship with time.
