The cycle consists of a series of performances and activities that tackle the phenomenon of immigration
Migratory fluxes in the Mediterranean are major factor for an understanding of the historical and social development of contemporary civilizations. Now the new Sala Beckett in Poblenou has created a cycle aimed at approaching this phenomenon from different perspectives. Mar de miralls is a cycle that will run from December 2016 to March 2017 that features performances in multiple formats and a series of workshops, exhibitions and other activities that aim to reflect a complex, multifaceted reality.
Odysseus is set to open the cycle, which will run from 23 December 2016 to 8 January 2017. Directed by Quimet Pla, an author on a winning streak following the success of Ragazzo, this staging is an unconventional adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey, an iconic text in Mediterranean literature. Combining multiple disciplines, this version is based on a collaboration by 30 creators, including actors, dancers, singers, musicians and photographers.
The cycle also features works like De carenes al cel by Judith Pujol and Albert Boronat of Companyia Obskené (from 18 January), El rey del Gurugú by Ferran Joanmiquel (from 20 January), Nador, based on the book by Laila Karrouch (premiere on 27 January) and Sous la plage by Marc Villanueva and Gerard Valverde (from 3 February). The cycle also features the photographic exhibition El fang d'Europa, a talk titled Experiències des del terreny de la crisi de refugiats (19 January), the round-table discussion Cultures híbrides i literatura de frontera (25 January) and the workshop Entre vivència i memòria (26 January).
