Seismes, the annual gathering of Fabra i Coats residents

The sixth edition of the festival will offer thirty artistic actions and will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the creation factory.

Fabra i Coats: Creation Factory brings together creators from different artistic disciplines: dance, theatre, film, music, performance... This amalgam is brought together and becomes more evident once a year, at the Seismes festival. It is open to the public and this year, in its sixth edition, will be held on Saturday, November 26 from 5.30 pm to 10.30 pm. It is called "De Sol a Sol" (“From Sun to Sun”), in reference to the work in the old spinning mill, where they worked making the most of the sunlight that came in through the windows, and it will be possible to follow more than 30 artistic actions. Some of the fifty participants will be Explica Dansa, Íria Llena, Luis Tabuenca, Biel Llinàs, Blood Quartet, Joana Dark, Sincro, Eva Parey, Stand Up Dance and La Esclusa.

The meeting will also serve to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Creation Factory. The artist who designed the poster for the inaugural festival ten years ago, Chuso Ordi, has been responsible for creating the image of Seismes 2022, a design that connects with that of a decade ago: "On that occasion the light came out of the factory and now the light enters through one of the windows," the author said. To create the poster, Ordi made the drawing and the letters with a stencil on a plate using the coining technique. He then placed the resulting plate against the light, to let in natural sunlight and obtain the effect of the sunbeam peeking through the arches of the window. For the promotional video, he had to use torches to achieve the final result.

The artistic actions of the sixth edition of Seismes, as Fabra i Coats explains, will be a tribute to the Sant Andreu neighbourhood and to all the people who have passed through the factory, as well as a welcome to those who will come to continue the chain of transmission of knowledge, human relations and ties with the territory.
