Gran reserva

Rhum & Cia

Teatre Borràs 07/07 - 01/08

Since Rhum & Cia first appeared at the Grec in 2014, over 50,000 people have seen their three shows. And they have all been happily intoxicated by the company’s roguish and hilarious sense of humour. Now it’s the turn of the 2020 crop.

Where’s the secret? Maybe in the mix of local varieties, perhaps in the velvety texture of the great classics or in the bouquet given off by their humour... Whatever it is, the products of this wine cellar have addicted the public from Barcelona and beyond who passed through the Grec festival (and later the city’s theatres) in 2014, for the première of Rhum; in 2016, to see Rhümia and 2018, to serve themselves a last drop of circus with Rhumans. A changing team of sommeliers sporting a red nose and equipped with large doses of absurd humour and magic, but tenderness and emotion too, are tasked with serving the tables. These clowns keep on filling our glasses to overflowing with their vintage humour but this time they have also picked out some of the best moments from the previous shows to stage them again at a frenetic pace. The result is a Gran reserva that promises to awaken our love for the insane and the absurd, while putting our more rational and boring side to sleep. Deserving recipients of all kinds of awards, Rhum & Cia’s previous vintages have even earned a City of Barcelona Circus Award (Rhumans, 2018). So, what can we expect from a distilled version of the best essences achieved so far? Gran reserva promises to be a spectacular end to an experience that grew out of the determination of Rhum & Cia’s members to pay tribute to Joan Montanyès “Monti”, one of the great clowns and actors of our time.
