Sis hectàrees d’oliveres [Six hectares of olive trees]

Aina Tur

Heartbreak Hotel   02/07 - 28/07

The show that won the 2023 edition of the Quim Masó award turns a personal phobia into a universal conflict. So, what are you afraid of?

Júlia has just arrived at the house Pau owns in the middle of six hectares of olive trees. She has bought petrol. She wants fire. She needs fire. She needs to burn it all. That morning she said: no more fear, ever. Fear of nobody. Nobody’s fear. Only fire. And ashes. Today. 

You may recall the name of Aina Tur, a Menorcan playwright and director who brought Una galaxia de luciérnagas, a text based on a traumatic experience she had on a trip to Latin America, to the Grec in 2020 and 2021. This time, the author also started with her own experience, an outsized phobia that she overcame some years ago, which she uses as a catalyst for this story in which two people re-encounter each other. And even though they have gone through very different life experiences, they both have to confront themselves and their fears.  What conflicts and violence will be unleashed when they have to look their own fears in the eye? How will petrol and fire help Júlia to overcome her phobia? Anna Alarcón, the actress who played the leading role in Una galaxia de luciérnagas, is back to perform in this show, with Nao Albet as her fellow cast member.

As the winner of the Quim Masó award for theatre production in Catalan, the show has received funding for production and is premièring at the Grec 2024 Festival de Barcelona while also being part of the Temporada Alta festival, which is also a co-producer.
