Barcelona Cultura


The Grec has in this edition worked together with the city’s factories of creativity along three different lines: organizing creativity workshops addressed chiefly to theatre professionals; collaborating in communal projects and, finally, working with artists who were doing a residence in some of these venues for their creations in the Grec. The result is part of this year’s festival programme.
What’s more, some of the companies billed at the 2017 Barcelona Grec Festival that have done residences at the city’s factories of creativity bring their stay in these places to a close by offering a preview of their show.
If you want more information about how, when and where these performances are being offered, stay in touch via the festival’s social networks, which will give you regular updates about these free activities. There will also be chats with the artists, chaired by the experts of

Creativity workshop with Nuria Legarda
The artist, choreographer, performer and pedagogue Nuria Legarda is organizing a creativity workshop in which she questions the perpetual nature of the discourse to do with the construction of identity, in relation to the mechanisms of power. Based on texts by Shakespeare, as an aesthetic and ideological pillar in the perennial nature of the hegemonic discourse, she visits femininity and masculinity in relation to power, ambition … A capitalist system that has condemned the feminine archetype to fall continuously: immortal icon: the death of Ophelia.

Burn: Installation by United Cowboys, with master classes and performances
An interdisciplinary Dutch company that combines art, dance, music and performance in its creations is offering a research project for musicians, dancers and actors during the Grec. During the day they will be given master classes and in the evening there will be performances open to the public.
It is an idea by Maarten van der Put and Pauline Roelants, the leaders of the company, who take as their point of departure their production Burn, in which the audience is invited to observe, from all angles and for as long as they like, the movements of a series of actors and performers that develop to the sound of loud penetrating music as if they were in a club or a rave, creating poetic images of great vitality. The audience can walk around the performers, enter, leave and re-enter the venue whenever they wish.
Concept: Maarten van der Put, Pauline Roelants.
Creation and performance: Evelyne Rossie, Marti Guëll Vallbona, Florencia Martina, Hanne Schilemans, Sarah Bostoen, Anni Kaila, Jef Stevens, Wilhem Blomberg, Johan Reijnders and those attending the master classes
From July 19 to 20

From 8 pm to 10.30 pm

Free admission, limited places. No booking required.


Extended Performance
In recent years, the circus has evolved and has become more aware of its strengths. The contemporary world has burst in on its path towards a new revolution. What we see now is not so much an occupation or a repetition of what already existed, but it stands up for itself and becomes art.
Extended Performance is a doorway open to new pieces that with rigour and craziness change above all the very founding principles of circus itself. EP is the acronym for Extended Player, coming from music: a record halfway between a single and a long player, lasting 20 minutes. At La Central del Circ, in our work for the development of the circus artist, we have named these sessions Extended Performance.
14 and 15 July, at 8 p.m.
Ticket price: 8 € (general admission), 6 € (Reduction: Members of the Association of Circus Professionals of Catalonia)
