The theatre company is doing the world premiere of 'Urban Nature', a piece focused on life in big cities.
On 2 July, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) premieres the work Urban Nature, a performative installation by the Rimini Protokoll theatre company. The play is a walk-through film that immerses the audience on a journey through the real stories of seven characters with intertwined yet contrasting lives. Among the characters, we find a professor of economic and environmental history, a homeless girl, and a girl from Barcelona’s Raval district. The Rimini Protokoll company is known for pushing the boundaries of theatre, and, in Urban Nature, the audience becomes part of the cast. Using audiovisual narratives, they transform the scenery into a movie set that invites you to take on the role of the characters and immerse yourself in their shoes.
In this artistic piece, Rimini Protokoll puts the spotlight on life in cities. Urban Nature wants to remind us that, although life in big cities may seem lonely, and even more so after the pandemic, our actions and decisions affect the public sphere and those around us. The installation also aims to reopen the debate on issues such as the management of natural resources, the right to decent housing, or inequalities between neighbourhoods.
Enjoy this experience from Mondays to Sundays until 19 September. Tickets are 7 euros, and each session runs for 75 minutes. Remember to arrive early as you won’t be allowed in once the session has started. Find more information and purchase tickets here.
