From 19th to 24th January, FiraTàrrega will be presenting four theatrical proposals at the Chilean festival Santiago OFF. The Institut Ramon Llull has participated in the collaboration agreement that also includes the Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals (ICEC), from the Catalan Department of Culture.
FiraTàrrega will be offering a view of street art outside the continent of America and will give a glimpse of the current state of street arts with four proposals of its own: urGENTestimar by Ada Vilaró, Náufragos by La Industrial Teatrera, Harinera (te ganarás el pan con el sudor de tu frente) by the group Harinera and Pelat by Joan Català. These four pieces have been part of FiraTàrrega’s Creativity Support Programme.
Pelat by Joan Català was the first solo show by this multidisciplinary artist with an extensive international curriculum, trained in the plastic arts, theatre, circus and dance. This proposal came from the observation of artisans at work and from introspection in the artist’s geographical and family roots, to experiment with space and movement and to create a dialogue between nature and the individual, seeking the involvement of the audience. It is a work created for the public space, where four strangers join the performer to work with the same objective, in a ritual based on the ephemeral – a reflection on our phenomenal and disturbing passage through life.
Náufragos by La Industrial Teatrera is a street clown show based on the shipwrecks of everyday life, great and small. It is an encounter with the audience to share a slice of life, sow a seed wherever they pass and take others home with them that will gradually transform their lives. It is a tribute without words to all the travellers who have at some time felt shipwrecked, to be able to laugh at everything: fragility, everyday shipwrecks, ourselves. The piece was programmed at the 2016 edition.
Harinera (te ganarás el pan con el sudor de tu frente) reflects on collective and individual responsibility in changing situations. The work is set in an empty urban space, a metaphor for the lucrative property market that conditions the future of the territory and its inhabitants. Through stage devices and with the aid of digital and analogue technologies, it establishes a dialogue with the citizens / spectators who are allowed to decide which direction the denouement of the show should take.
urGENTestimar by Ada Vilaró is an adaptation of the project for communal participation originally conceived as the inaugural action of FiraTàrrega 2017. With the aim of breaking down borders, the artist Ada Vilaró proposes a production that involves people, associations and spectators in an investigation of love, coexistence, respect and acceptance of the other. It is an activity of activities, a shared experience composed of different rituals: observing, eating, sleeping, walking, running … In urGENTestimar the citizens are invited to halt their everyday activity and to put into practice different moments of communion to allow them to make contact with one another. A process of shared transformation of people, space and time in which the Escena Poblenou Festival of Contemporary Creation also took part.
The Fair has signed an agreement with the Chilean festival with the aim of acting as a platform for exporting Catalan creativity
