They will première two pieces by consolidated artists and two by emerging talents.
Once again this year, Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera is showing its support for contemporary performing arts with a programme of innovative, ground-breaking shows in a series called ‘Noves Escenes’. All of the pieces combine movement, music, spoken word, video and objects, touching on universal themes from a specific perspective. Two of the productions have been created by consolidated artists with a long, prolific history, commissioned by the foundation directly, and will be seen for the first time ever. Firstly, Societat Doctor Alonso has created Andrei Rublev, una paniconografia, a piece in which sound space plays a key role, exploring the layers of sound, adding music and audio from the films of Tarkovsky and their surroundings. It will première on 2 May. The other event is the première of El Bosque (Parte II), a video piece by Pablo Gisbert and Juan Navarro that incorporates live music by AMSIA, on 16 May.
Plus, the programme also includes two more pieces, by emerging talents. Firstly, on 9 May we will get the chance to see Versiones parciales y erróneas de mi vida y mi gloria, by Glòria Ribera, which looks into the use of milk as a sedative for the masses and their emotions, through cuplé, tango, fandanguillo, foxtrot and pasodoble. Finally, on 23 May, we will be able to see Ojalá el verano, by Gaia Bautista, a highly introspective piece about a 30-year-old woman who is reflecting on the life changes around her. All of the shows start at 8 pm at La Pedrera.
Each show costs €8. You can get your tickets on the Casa Milà website.
