Graphic image of the Tangent Festival

15 summer nights in the Eixample filled with art, experiences and sensations

Dance, theatre, music, documentary circus and experimentation have their place in the 6th Tangent Festival.

The six civic and cultural centres of Barcelona's Eixample district are organising Tangent, a festival that will launch its 6th edition on 29 June and is an innovative proposal based on different arts. At Tangent, there is room for everything: theatre, documentary circus, experimentation, dance, live music, etc. There will be activities over 15 nights, all of them on weekdays, and on 22 JulyMambo Project with Iaia, a multidisciplinary show where the audience enters the dining room of grandma's house to recreate and relive her memories, will bring the show to a close on 22 July. There will be two performances at the Urgell Civic Centre, at 10 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.

The contemporary dance proposal Rojos, by the company Miquel Barcelona, will open the event, also at the Urgell Civic Centre. The piece is the result of the intersection between the search for witnesses of the Spanish post-war period and the legacy of the dissident movement of the time: artists, creative women and people of different sexual orientations who had to live clandestinely and in silence. Empezará a las 21 h. The Tangent will host theatre shows such as Pruna, by the NINS Collective, and Nit de Reis, by Pàrquing Shakespeare; dance by the Màmbola Collective, the Isabel Vinardell Company and the BOOL Company; and music by Anna AndreuThe Black Barbies and Alba Morena. Other proposals include a "Sound itinerary in the chalet" with Burruezo & Nur Camerata Virginia JoëlleBasarab Orchestra and Sealskin Música, the acrobatics of Circ Pistolet, or a street show with Eléctrico 28.
