The square is set to become the epicenter of the Grec festival with many free of charge performances.
Plaça Margarida Xirgu on Montjuïc is set to become the epicenter of activities related to the Grec Festival, Barcelona’s premier summer festival. While the action lasts, there will be almost daily performances scheduled there in the fields of music, drama, circus arts and dance. Many of these performances have a connection with Asian culture and have been set up in collaboration with Casa Asia. Examples include, on 9 July, Barcelona Coral Asia, a group with more than 60 singers from 23 different countries. Another, on 10 July, is a dance exhibition by K-pop, J-pop and C-pop, who are very popular among Asian youth. On 12 July we can see contemporary dance with Shreyashee Nag and company, while Chinese short films from the Lychee Film Festival will be screened on 22 and 23 July. The action at the square will come to an end with the Guzheng Zifan Artistic Group Orchestra, who will be taking us on a trip to Imperial China with their music on 26 July and a group of Korean performers called CCOT on 27 and 28 July.
Apart from these Asian-linked performances, local artists like Esther Condal (16/07) and the Irishman Matthew McDaid (17/07) will also be performing there. In addition, there will be a wide selection of food trucks serving dishes during the shows.
All activities are free of charge. Additional information is available at the following link.
