( Quim Bigas, FANCLUB )

WOWOWOW is a dynamic piece exploring collective trends and social roles from a personal and historic point of view. A new collaboration between the dance collective Fanclub (Denmark/Sweden/Norway) and the choreographer Quim Bigas (Spain).

When the Fanclub collective and Quim first met a couple of years ago, they quickly found themselves drawn into an artistic conversation around their shared fascination with and experience of “collective work”. They discovered that they share a committment to immersing themselves in both physical study and theoretical exploration of this concept. The combination of Fanclub, a collective, and Quim, an individual, invites mutual exploration of the many different ways of looking at collectivity. Both Fanclub and Quim are intrigued by the idea of reaching the limits of their own entities so as to work from a new platform where the five members take part as performers, makers of ideas, researchers, editors, curators and stage activists.

Baró d'Evel
( Baró d'Evel, Camille Decourtye, Blaï Mateu Trias )

Piece for two humans, a crow, four mikes and two colours.

LÀ as a question mark over the present.
LÀ as now, as a test.
LÀ as a note.
LÀ as a fall.
LÀ as a plot.
LÀ as a prologue to The Cliff.
LÀ as a plain, a dead point, a suspense.
LÀ as a moment of naked brutality.
LÀ as a continuation of what went before.
LÀ as a beginning of what is to come.

Creating LÀ means giving time and space to the duo Camille Decourtye and Blaï Mateu Trias to carry on:
- exploring the limitless world of the voice, portés and desequilibrium.
- deepening their investigation into matter, light and rhythm.
- playing with the juxtaposition of the improbable, the abstract, the absurd and the instinctive.

( Xavier Bobés, Salvador Sunyer )

Creation, script-writing and manipulation-choreography residency for the short film Restos de Cosas.

The art of manipulating objects is still unfamiliar to the general public. The universe surrounding the poetry of the object, its theatricality, its historic and sociological evocation, has mainly been explored in the visual and performance arts. The great communicator of the infinite possibilities of representation based on the poetry of objects in film has been animation, where one exceptional figure has brought about a worldwide paradigm shift in the way it is regarded: Jan Svankmajer. Paradoxically, this animation of the object is always bound up in its potential for transformation through the creation of a fantasy universe. The use of artistic devices defines and to some extent limits the metaphorical expressivity of the object.

Baró d'Evel
( Baró d'Evel, Camille Decourtye, Blaï Mateu Trias )

Piece for eight humans, a horse, birds, mikes and two colours.
The Cliff is a village above the ground.

In group work, our idea is that the question is not so much “what” as “how”. The quest of a team trying to develop its ability to adapt and transform itself, without seeking any similarity among its members, is a constant challenge.

Trying to push the limits of each artist, to strip each of them bare, demands working with trust so as to be able to take real risks.
We construct little ceremonies so as to be together, dance, hold each other and lead each other towards a shared rhythm.

Do you remember the smell of your grandparents’ kitchen?

Extraños mares arden/Strange Seas on Fire is a piece of documentary theatre exploring the development of capitalism in the early decades of the 20th Century and the close relationship between the histories of the finance, mining, arms and contemporary art industries.

The piece can be shown in two formats: the Italian style Stage Version, which was first performed in October 2016, and the Meal Version. Both are designed to develop the same story from two very different angles.

In the Meal Version, the documentary story unfolds while public and performers share a simple, delicious, traditional meal; we see food as a powerful tool to trigger memory and set the imagination to work. A table, a tablecloth and memories.

Teatro Bastardo (Bastard Theater)

L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà)
From 04/09/2017 to 08/09/2017
( )

In this workshop, David Climent and Pablo Molinero,, will look at the way they understand theatre as a creative act and at the performer as creator. The aim is to share their working method so as to approach creation in a non-frontal way, that is to say, not just from the idea, allowing each individual to develop this method within his or her own poetic vision.
In order to do this they will work on two fronts. On the one hand, they will develop and fine-tune the tools of the actor-creator through training: voice, body, hearing and spatial composition. On the other, they will look at creative work by making physical and textual material, working with guidelines on sound and space, with objects and on how to handle all these layers simultaneously to go beyond our own creativity.
