IllArt exhibition

Nature and the environment have probably always been the main subject of art in the Balearic Islands. As we all know, these two sources have led to a broad range of outcomes over the years,but above all, they are often associated with a certain type of landscape painting that fits into an established and rather outdated pictorial tradition. Now, with IslandArt, the Institut Ramon Llull introduces the work of five artists who sum up the last few decades of creative endeavours in the Balearic Islands—even though Erwin Bechtold, Naco Fabre, Robert Ferrer i Martorell, Pep Llambias and Guillem Nadal truly stand for themselves above all.

"Forests" BIT Calixto Bieito

Forests is a new Shakespearean odyssey imagined by Catalan director Calixto Bieito, one of Europe's most prominent theatre directors, whose passionate and radical interpretations of classics have stimulated controversy and earned him critical acclaim. Composed from original verse from Shakespeare's woodland and heath scenes, the play takes audiences from As You Like It's forest of Arden through the moving trees of Macbeth's Birnam Wood, ending in the bare wilderness of King Lear's cliffs of Dover: a vivid theatrical journey from the calmness of paradise to the uncertainties of purgatory and finally into the flames of hell.
