GALATEA

de Josep M. de Sagarra

Sala Petita

May 13th–23rd

Josep M. de Sagarra’s most personal play, together with Ocells i llops and La fortuna de Sílvia

On the premiere of Galatea in December 1948 at the Teatre Victòria, Josep M. de Sagarra recalled that the unusual cold of that winter – and the lack of heating in the theatre – meant that the audience saw the play shivering in their coats. It was not well received by most critics, and Sagarra complained that he had been insulted as if he were an arsonist or a corruptor of minors. Nevertheless, the playwright never stopped defending his play: “With La fortuna de Sílvia, with Ocells i llops and especially with Galatea I believed, and I believe sincerely, that I was trying to make a theatre more in keeping with my conscience and with the spiritual climate of our time.”

The playwright Lluïsa Cunillé conjures with the phantoms of El Paral·lel in a great symphony of Barcelona’s nocturnal bohemia

A few months before the Second Republic is proclaimed, Barcelona mourns its most beloved and acclaimed artist: Palmira Picard, "L’Emperadriu del Paral·lel". While Barcelona’s great avenue of leisure is in mourning, the effervescence of the night has summoned all kinds of stage artisans, libertarian thinkers, bohemian writers and other heterodox agitators to La Tranquil·litat bar, who will get drunk to the health and memory of the great woman.

MARE DE SUCRE

de Clàudia Cedó

Sala Tallers

May 13th–30th

The story of a young woman with an intellectual disability who wants to be a mother and has to confront her community’s lack of understanding  

Cloe is 27, has an intellectual disability and has harboured a deep seated desire since a young age. The lack of understanding from her family, the institution where she lives and her community will lead her to an unprecedented fight for her rights, an awkward rebellion against her unfair situation in which she has lost control of her own body. Cloe will confront the law of men to realise her personal and natural yearning: to get pregnant and have a child. But the journey will make her doubt herself. Would she be a good mother? What is the ability that makes us good parents? Does everyone with children have it? Are all disabled people incapable of coping with maternity?

In such a diverse world perhaps those neighbours that we consider strangers are far more similar to us than we thought, no matter what they are like and where they come from

Full House is a piece of physical theatre without words, featuring live music, that through a contemporary fable explores coexistence, approached from the diversity of cultures and the need to share. Four different animals who are neighbours that had not realised the needs and similarities of those living next door.

L’HURACÀ

de Carme Montoriol

Sala Petita

June 10th–13th

An acute insight into maternity by one of the great female voices of Catalan drama

The playwright and translator Carme Montoriol, with her short yet very subtle dramatic work, deserves a privileged place among the great modern classics of Catalan drama. In L’huracà, released in 1935, she portrays with enormous psychological subtlety the distressing conflict of a woman tragically absorbed by the possessive relationship that her son is obsessively demanding.

BILLY’S VIOLENCE

Needcompany

Sala Gran

July 8th–11th

For Billy’s Violence, Victor Lauwers researched the ten tragedies of Shakespeare and rewrote them into violently loving, intimate dialogues in which the woman is the central focus, stripped of any historical reference or anecdotal content.
 
Shakespeare is the most read and performed writer the world has ever known. And yet many of the bard’s plays are virtually unperformable due to their violence, gruesomeness, racism and misogyny. What does violence in art mean in today’s world? Why do we enjoy watching it so much? Is violence viewed differently today than it was in the 16th-17th century?

MALDITAS PLUMAS

Sala Petita

July 21st & 22nd

Malditas plumas explores the different episodes in the life of a character, performed by Sol Picó, on a journey that shifts between tenderness and decline. In this story, the audience learns about this vedette of El Paral·lel and shares her memories and experiences... But what if she never was a performer and this is only her dreams, her lifelong hopes, her unfulfilled desires? Perhaps all is merely delirium, which, although transporting us to a very specific place and time, also connects us with the most human and, therefore, universal of feelings: fear of death, of decline, of loss... of ceasing to be.

Inspired by the genre of the Spanish revue and its picaresque style, this show plays with transformation, audience interaction and the blurring between fiction and reality, always with the irony and sense of humour that characterise the language of Sol Picó.
