I am part of the Advisory Board of this event organized by Focus in October 2022 in Barcelona. A space of, by and for theater spectators from all over the world where experiences are shared.
It summons the spectators to resume their leading role, to recover the collective energy that occurs when they connect with the performance on stage. In this first edition, it wants to promote, improve, develop, encourage and bring change and innovation to the performing arts sector based on the role played by spectators, focusing on 3 priority lines of work: Diversity, participation and transversality.
The development of a participatory dance line and dance accompaniment is incorporated into the festival program.
In a first edition it begins with three municipalities: Sant Cugat, Badalona and L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, adding Santa Coloma, Granollers, Sabadell and Terrassa in a second edition.
We have the complicity of Jose Manuel Álvarez, Guillem Vidal and Pol Jímenez.
I have accompanied the participatory and community artistic programming of the Barcelona Grec Festival, being close to the teams, artists and the participants who trust in the proposals.
During 2021 we were able to see Nadia Beugré’s “Legacy” hand in hand with some thirty women from the city in a proposal conveyed through the words: “struggle”, “woman” and “freedom”. And proposal “Dale Recuerdos” by french director Didier Ruiz performed by African men and women over 70 years of age residing in the city of Barcelona.
