This section features the festival's shows that have been produced in collaboration with the Barcelona Grec Festival.
The Barcelona Grec Festival is a big showcase for the performing arts that operates with a dual purpose: to show audiences in the Catalan capital some of the greatest international shows playing right now and to highlight and promote, as far as possible, local talent from Barcelona and Catalonia.
It is with this twofold goal that the Grec involves itself in big show productions, often in collaboration with other European festivals. The Grec is thereby strengthening its role as a promoter of the performing arts on the international circuit and ensuring that some of the newest creators' big productions are performed in the city.
The Barcelona Grec Festival produces or co-produces live arts shows created by and starring local talent from Barcelona and Catalonia, taking on the role of promoter of emerging talent in theatre, circus arts, music or dance, as well as supporting more established artists and, in short, becoming a great showcase for local talent. To give you an idea of the importance of co-productions in the Grec programme, between thirty and forty percent of all the shows and productions playing at this edition are co-productions.
