Barcelona Districte Cultural

150 activities in the 5th edition of the Barcelona Cultural District

The action kicks off on 1 February and includes performances, drama, dance, music, circus, talks, workshops and encounters.

A quality programme, aimed at audiences of different ages and interests makes up the basis of Barcelona Cultural District, a circuit of cultural activities that extends to the 10 districts of the city and which is celebrating its 5th edition this year. Over the course of three months, from the beginning of February to the end of April, spectators will be able to choose between 150 activities, all with free admission, in 21 different venues spread around the city.

With so much on offer, it’s difficult to choose just a few to recommend and we strongly advise you to check out the full programme. Among the nine theatrical productions included are a number of hits from Barcelona’s commercial theatres, such as A.K.A. (Also Known As), starring Albert Salazar, written by Daniel J. Meyer and directed by Montse Rodríguez, Be God Is by the Espai Dual company, led by Oriol Pla, a monologue by Mont Plans titled Sembla que rigui, and Los bancos regalan sandwicheras y chorizos by the intriguingly named José y sus hermanas. On the musical front, there will be performances by Ferran Palau and Mazoni, as well as an inclusive proposal by Big Band Basket Beat Barcelona. In this edition, music documentary screenings play a special role, thanks to a collaboration with the In-Edit Festival that will bring the public closer to artists such as Peret, M.I.A. and Pentina't, Lula! Dance is also present in Barcelona Cultural District, with proposals such as Likes by Núria Guiu and Almazuela by the Compañía Roberto G. Alonso. The world of the circus will be represented by Mumusic Circus, Circ Pistolet and Compayia La Tal.

The Petit Cineclub cycle is aimed at children, while the community creation project ART and PART will focus their activities in the Poble-sec, Gòtic and Besòs neighbourhoods. Other activities, such as workshops, encounters and talks aim to make artists more accessible to the city’s residents.
