Xirgu en Família [Xirgu with the Family]

Plaça de Margarida Xirgu   05/07 - 20/07

A sound installation where poetry takes centre stage, a technical and spiritual journey, a game to find out what stories have to tell us... You can experience it all in these activities for children at the festival’s main square.

Plaça de Margarida Xirgu on Montjuïc, the heart of the Grec Festival, is the setting of dance and movement performances, but it is traditionally also a meeting point for the littlest spectators, future Grec audiences who this year will find free activities that serve as a gateway into the magical world of the live arts.

Versos que anidan [Nesting poems] 
Baychimo Teatro 
5, 6, 12 and 13 July
6.30 pm

Where can a poem live if not on a page of paper? Well, maybe in a tree or in any old corner, because the poems in this show have escaped from their books and taken on a life, and sound, of their own. Everyone recites their poems from the playhouse-nest prepared for them. That’s the activity Baychimo Teatro is offering.

Accions Humanes No Identificades [Unidentified Human Actions]
Hermanas Picohueso
5, 6, 12 and 13 July
6.30 pm

Are you already familiar with the Hermanas Picohueso? This company from Catalonia and the Balearic Islands casts a critical eye on the new (neoliberal) forms of spirituality and suggest an exercise in intergenerational meditation, a techno-spiritual journey that will guide children and adults towards technological detoxification and deprogramming. A thought-provoking participatory experience.

Jocs de fades [Fairy Games]
Tombs creatius
19 and 20 July
6.30 pm

Stories are told through words, poems, illustrations, films, cartoons, in the theatre, on television... But what if we play them? By playing, we cross through a doorway to enter familiar stories, become the protagonists, relive them and also, if we want, reconstruct them. Fantasy, surprise and emotions await us. Want to play stories?
