Catalan avant-garde on stage
26 November - 4 December 2016
The PLAY-K(ei) Who are we? season closes 2016 with the now customary European appointment, dedicated this year to CATALONIA. A rich and lively cultural panorama, a multiform theatrical scene, with peaks of excellence in very different disciplines, from contemporary circus to urban performance.
An autonomous region with a strong identity, Catalonia is today both an example of the protection of identities and a mirror of the many trends towards independence in Europe. It is therefore a region that represents a stimulus for investigation, leading to the identification of leading groups on the performance scene and a reflection on the political and cultural developments of an increasingly complex and fragile Europe.
Can the protection of identities be a guarantee of artistic freedom? Can the aspiration for local economic and political independence exist within a Europeanist vision?
ZONA K chooses some of the most representative and innovative artists, whose work is able to speak about contemporary reality and the contemporary world.
At the same time, in a parallelism between the actuality of the present and the avant-garde of the past, it investigates the Spanish Civil War on its 80th anniversary, through the eyes of artists who recounted their present.
