De Grec a Grec

Artists and creators from different disciplines and with connections to some of the city’s creation factories are coming into contact with Barcelona’s cultural museums and institutions and interacting with their facilities and collections in a series of theatre, dance, circus and music productions.

Frederic Marès Museum (pl. Sant Iu, 5)
Tour, by Carla Fareny

Based on the collections at the Museu Frederic Marès, this is a search for a dialogue between the declinations of various collector’s items and the declinations of the turner (kiln finished jar-wet clay jar-dry clay jar), along with the possible declinations of the suspended body of trapeze artist Carla Farreny.
A proposal from La Central del Circ.

Hard persistence, by Helena Vinent

When a person starts using a prosthesis ceases to identify him or herself as a biological organism, becoming something that, for many, is trapped in science fiction: a cyber-organism or cyborg. “Hard persistence” is an autobiographical essay-fiction based on the author's relationship with hearing aids, music and sound from her perspective as a deaf person.

Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món (pg. Santa Madrona, 16)
Ciudades imposibles, by Aristeo Mora

Now, the Museu de la Ciutat Impossible's collections are turned into an interactive digital live art piece directed by stage director Aristeo Mora. Developed by the Compañía Opcional and Globus Vermell.

October 15 at 6:45 p.m.
Montjuïc Castle (ctra. De Montjuïc, 66)
Stone and Silk, by Paloma Muñoz

Bodies like scratches, like echoes bouncing against the stone. Bodies that disturb the air, that transmute into buzz. "Stone and Silk" is about space, its materiality, its smell, its sound, its memory. A celebration of the present, of the living.
Direction and choreography: Paloma Muñoz | Performers: Tanit Cobas, Jacob Gomez, Rober Gomez, Lara Misó | Sound space: Guillem Llotje | Production: Rita Stivala | Photography: Magui Pichinini
A proposal from Graner, creation centre.

Oct. 16 and 17 at 8.45 p.m.
El Born CCM (pl. Comercial, 12)
Un altre dia diví, by Ferran Utzet

In our overstimulated world, an isolated look or a movement can be a subversion. A story is constructed about what a body means today, about its desire to be, to communicate and what the gaze of others, face-to-face or virtualized, provokes him.
To enjoy the show you must bring a battery-powered smartphone and headphones.
Performers: Natalia Carminati, Lucía Lerendegui, Llapispanc | Direction: Ferran Utzet | Curator: Enric Puig Punyet | Technical coordination: Paula Miranda
A proposal from La Escocesa.

MUHBA Casa de l'Aigua (c. Torrent de la Perera, s/n)
Cantar l'aigua, by Marc Vives and Laia Estruch

A journey that investigates the spatial experimentation of the sound takes us from the outside of the Casa de l'Aigua to the underground cavities of this pumping station to the chlorination tanks that used to be in charge for sending water to the city. This performance mixes various musical traditions that are linked to the ways the water flows to the sea.
