Throughout the day on the 14th of February the market will host dance, music, theatre, poetry and puppet activities as well as painting exhibitions and workshops, all featuring people with disabilities
On the 14th of February, throughout the entire day, the Mercat de les Flors and the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona will host the first edition of L’Art Impossible, an inclusive, multi-disciplinary arts festival featuring people with disabilities. The majority of the activities will take place inside the Mercat de les Flors, while the remainder will happen outside, in the Plaça Margarida Xirgu.
The programme includes dance, music, theatre, poetry, puppets, a painting exhibition and numerous workshops, all of which will be introduced by different presenters, many of whom are well known, such as Antoni Bassas and two members of the band Las Migas, and other less well-known but fundamental within the ambit of the associative movement of people with disabilities, such as the reporters from the inclusive, online television station TEBVist.
On the music front, visitors will be able to enjoy a concert by the jazz trio comprising Ignasi Terraza, Nono Fernández and Xavi Hinojosa, or a percussion jam organised by Santi Carcasona. Highlights in the field of performing arts include an integrated dance production by Jordi Cortés entitled Col·lectiu Liant la Troca Los Nadie, a play entitled Ella by the Brots-Pallapupas Company about a young disabled girl who wants to develop her acting skills, or the poetry of Santiago Estrada. Among other activities there will also be an exhibition of paintings organised by the platform Artistas Diversos.
L’Art Impossible has been organised by the aforementioned association, Artistas Diversos, in conjunction with Jordi Estrada and with the financial and technical support of the Municipal Institute for Disabled People (IMD). Other collaborators include the Barcelona City Council’s Time and Quality of Life Programme, who will offer activities from their Temps per Tu (Time for You) programme, the Institut del Teatre and the Mercat de les Flors, who have provided spaces as well as technical and material resources, the Jiwar Creation and Society residence for artists, and the entities ONCE, Tres Turons and Sils, all of whom have selfishly provided facilities for people with visual and/or auditory impairments.
