Catalan/Balearic Companies at Spraoi 2019

Performing.  Waterford,  04/08/2019

Catalan companies Joan Català and Always Drinking Marching Band, as well as Balearic company La Mecànica & Los Rabinovich, will be performing at Spraoi 2019: International Street Arts Festival.

One of the most important street arts festivals in Ireland, Spraoi 2019: International Street Arts Festival, will host two Catalan artists and one Balearic artist in its next edition, which will be held in the city of Waterford (Ireland) between the 2nd to the 4th of August.

Spraoi is one of the most prestigious street arts festivals in Ireland. Attracting around 100,000 visitors every year, the event offers a wide selection of interdisciplinary street arts aimed at adults and children alike.

Following a collaboration with the Institut Ramon Llull in 2018, 2019 will see Joan Català, Always Drinking Marching Band and La Mecànica & Los Rabinovich who will be performing throughout the festival.

Always Drinking Marching Band is a Catalan street arts company with a long trajectory that combines music and gags in shows that have toured around Europe.

La Mecànica/Los Rabinovich is a Balearic ensemble presenting their show Jêtlåk, which introduces the arrival of the Rabinovich brothers and their suitcase full of surprises.

Joan Català will bring his show Pelat, a proposal that blurs the distinctions between theatrical genres, audiences and the performance itself in a show based on artisanal techniques and personal memories.

Do not miss the chance to check the full programme of the festival, including their parade and their music activities, on their website.

These activities have been organised with the support of the Institut Ramon Llull.
