The twelfth edition of Barcelona Districte Cultural will offer 230 shows on 34 stages.
The twelfth edition of Barcelona Districte Cultural (BDC), an initiative that was born in the spring of 2017 to strengthen local culture and make it easier for everyone to enjoy it through civic centres, cultural facilities and auditoriums of educational centres, is here.
This autumn, Barcelona Districte Cultural will offer 230 performing arts, music and audiovisual shows in 34 venues around the city. A committee, made up of specialists in different artistic fields and the heads of the centres, evaluates and selects the productions according to artistic and technical criteria of quality and accessibility. For this reason, some performances will have Braille guides, subtitles, sign language interpretation, magnetic loops, audio descriptions, typhlological models or tactile tours 30 minutes before the start of the event.
The programme combines established and emerging productions and shows. Highlights include films (such as the musical documentaries in collaboration with the In-Edit Festival), circus (such as POI, by Companyia D’es Tro; Els viatges de Bowa, by La Gata Japonesa; or Sin Ojana, by Chicharrón Circo Flamenco), dance (such as Rojos, Roges i Violetes, by Miquel Barcelona; Black, by Oulouy; or Lo Faunal, by Pol Jiménez), music (with Alba Morena, Paula Grande and Anna Ferrer, Las Opinólogas, Electric Gozarela or The Salsa Punk Orchestra) and theatre (such as Ana y Serafín: inquilinos de la perifèria, by La Nave Va Teatre and Factoría Los Sánchez; NUA, Radiografia d’un trastorn, by Ann Perelló; Conservando memoria, by El Patio Teatro; Lázaro, by the LEAMŎK platform; and The Frame, by Eléctrico 28).
Barcelona Districte Cultural is also committed to the youngest audiences with a family offer that includes puppets (such as Hamelí, by the companyia Xip Xap), dance and visual theatre (such as KLÉ, by Addaura), musical shows (such as Muuuun, by La Curiosa, or A cau d’orella, by Tal Com Sona), the Petit Cineclub sessions (with playful and educational presentations by Billy and Milly Oncle) or the show Prometeu (a groundbreaking proposal by the Agrupación Señor Serrano aimed exclusively at audiences between the ages of 6 and 11, with no adults in the auditorium, which reinterprets this Greek myth).
