La Seca is a historical building located in Carrer dels Flassaders in the Born neighbourhood, a stone’s throw away from the Picasso Museum and Santa Maria del Mar. From the 16th to the 19th centuries it houses the royal mint of the Crown of Aragon in Barcelona. Some years ago, the city council acquired the site and, in 2009, put it up for public auction to find the best way to exploit it as a public space for culture. The team behind Brossa Espai Escènic won the concession and have been operating there since September 2011. The venue has two halls for staging works, an exhibition space, a bar and a rehearsal room. La Seca, which is part of the Fàbriques de Creació network, a programme by the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona designed to promote cultural creation and production, is now set to host the screening of a work about a seriously perturbed aspiring filmmaker who is obsessed by the idea of capturing feelings of terror with his camera. According to Martin Scorsese, veient aquesta pel·lícula “ho pots descobrir tot sobre les persones que fan cine”.
It’s a work that aims to be a quest for honesty about the artistic vision and a confession about the involvement of creators in their creations and the obscuring of the line that divides reality from fiction, life from art and truth from drama. Where does one begin and the other end in this work? Is what we are seeing real or is it a work of drama? You’ll find the answers in Watching Peeping Tom / Alícia Gorina, at Sala Joan Brossa until the 27th of March.
