The Noves Escenes cycle is back to promote the work of young creators who are widening the limits of drama and videoart
The world of scenic arts goes beyond the theatre, dance and simple corporal expression; it is a changing reality that year after year offers new ideas and new ways of doing things on stage. If you’re not a part of that world it may seem that everything is happening really fast and that you can’t get a grasp on those new developments, hence the importance of showcases such as the Noves Escenes cycle at La Pedrera, which offers a way of getting in touch with the new languages merging in the field. This new edition is beginning now, in May, and features four performances each Wednesday, showcasing new ways of doing scenic art.
The first performance, on 10 May, is the premiere of “Landscape. El idiota y lo sublime”, a work that lies midway between theatre, photography and video in which Barcelona artist Ernesto Collado speaks to us about his efforts to become landscape. In a mixture of images, words and movements he creates a space in real time. The other productions are a little more conventional, though daring by the standards of current theatrical practice. “Granotes” by Oriol Morales, which can be seen on 17 May, is a journey through poetry and mime, while “Hasta agotar existencias” by Verónica Navas Ramírez (24 May) aims to renew the sources of the monologue. The last piece, “Fang” by Quim Girón (31 May) is based on the body and mud.
