Culture comes to the rooftops

Xarim Aresté, Daniel Anglès, Pau de Nut and Clara Peya are among the participants in this cycle, which is organised by the Coincidències cultural association.

2017 sees another edition of Terrats en Cultura, a cycle promoted by Coincidències, which will once again bring theatrical, music, dance and poetry performances to the rooftop terraces of different buildings in Barcelona. This year’s edition features a total of eleven performances, which will take place in different neighbourhoods in the city from May to October. The cycle opened on 12 and 13 of May with a mixture of theatre and music titled There was a fiesta! (at Carnegie Hall) and the next date on the agenda is on 26 May with musician Xarim Aresté. On 2 June a rooftop terrace in the La Pau neighbourhood will host a flamenco-dance performance titled Bailar en hombre, with direction and choreography by Fernando López.

Actor and singer Daniel Anglès, accompanied by guitarist Marc Sambola, will be offering two perfroamnces, on 16 and 18 June, while 1 and 2 July will see performances of a play with the summery title of Estiu by Helena Tornero. A couple of weeks later, it will be time for Pau de Nut, who will be offering a multidisciplinary performance with large doses of humour. Quim Bigas has prepared a special work titled La llista, which he claims is a "a contextual, scenic work based on a list of small and large things". It’s scheduled to debut on 28 July on a rooftop terrace in the Poble-sec neighbourhood.

On 16 and 17 September, Oriol Genís and Marc Rosich will be appearing in Sant Gervasi with their theatre-cabaret show ¿Qué fue de Andrés Villarrosa?. On the same night as the large scale fireworks display to celebrate the Mercè Festival, Catalan band The Crab Apples will be playing a gig on a rooftop terrace that will be ideal for viewing the fireworks at the same time as their music. Pianist and composer Clara Peya, on 7 October, and a performances of stories accompanied by wine tasting on 21 October, will bring the events scheduled for Terrats en Cultura 2017 to an end.
