ortzi da zerua

A radio drama with a single character, not written in terms of by whom, but rather to whom, that is to say, to Inés. Meanwhile –as it were, apparently– Santa Teresa had a donkey.

The text was written between 2017 and 2019, and is divided into six chapters. Although it was written entirely in the Basque language, some fragments were summarised and translated into Spanish when the audio work was completed. The last of these contains the lyrics of a song in English, written by Cass Fox. For the audio work, the song Casta Diva by María Callas was used, as well as El Orfeón Donostiarra's performance of Santa Águeda.

An extract of the novella has been set to music by Polentzi García.

The characters are voiced by: Oier Iruretagoiena, Polentzi García, Leo Burge, Mar Torre, Myriam Petralanda, and Joel Englund.
