The Grec network

The Grec network

The Grec, a festival dedicated to weaving a network to support local creation, partners with the Sala Beckett, the Palau de la Música, the Liceu, a festival dedicated to Bach and many other agents in Barcelona’s cultural life.

The fact is, we’re surrounded by talent. All we have to do is supply the means for them to express themselves and for everyone to enjoy them. And this is done by venues in the city like the Sala Beckett, which has a resident artist every year (this year it’s Daniela Feixas) who shows their work as part of the festival programme. This year, too, the Palau de la Música has a guest composer, Ola Gjeilo, who will work with this Barcelona institution this year. Would you like to meet him? Come to the Grec, where he is featuring in a choir concert and an improv show. The Gran Teatre del Liceu and the city schools have worked together on a series of micro-operas (ÒH!PERA) that you can see in different spaces within this grand theatre on the Rambla, which connect emerging playwrights and scriptwriters, composers and future technicians from the Catalan stage. Partnerships with the Escenes series at L’Auditori and with music groups in the city like El Dorado, which organises the Festival Desvarío. Flamenc a Nou Barris and joint activities with festivals in the city and beyond, like Bachcelona and FiraTàrrega (stop by Plaça de Margarida Xirgu to see the shows by Ferran Orobitg, Sergi Estebanell and La Corcoles), are just a few signs of the Grec’s aim to network with other institutions and festivals to spotlight local creation.

Another example is the free concert featuring Momi Maiga being held at the TNC in conjunction with the Fira Mediterrània of Manresa. Further afield, this year the festival is networking with the Teatro Central of Seville on the show The Second Woman, featuring María Hervás, and is partnering with the Festival d’Avignon in other projects, among many other partnerships to co-produce shows.
