Catalan focus at Freedom Festival, Hull, United Kingdom

Coinciding with the celebration of the cultural capital city of Hull in the United Kingdom, Freedom Festival presents a special edition of performing arts and street music, which will take place between the 1st and 3rd of September

'The trip', by Tombs Creatius

To celebrate this diversity, four Catalan companies will be performing at the ninth edition of the British Festival: the dance company Los Moñekos  will present Amortal Combat,  a dance-theatre, music, humour street show dealing with duels, duos, love and hatred in 25 minutes.

Lali Ayguadé & Julian Sicard will present De Camino A Otro (A Way To The Other) , a beautiful dance duet from these two powerhouse Catalan artists.

Tombs Creatius present The Trip. This crazy catalan sideshow invites the lonely (and brave) spectator to make a surreal trip, a once in a lifetime experience.

And La Dinamo, the Catalonia’s funkiest band on bikes, will perform  Music on Cycles
With the support of Institut Ramon Llull.

Freedom Festival is the lasting legacy of the Wilberforce 2007 campaign, which celebrated the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade, led by Hull-born MP William Wilberforce in 1807. 200 years after the Slave Trade Act was passed, Hull was at the centre of global celebrations to remember the life and work of our city’s most famous son.

Numerous events and activities were held in Hull and around the world in 2007, highlighting issues of slavery and emancipation that are still hugely relevant today. Afterwards, it was agreed that a one-off anniversary event wasn’t enough; that Wilberforce’s legacy needed to be celebrated in Hull every year. Freedom Festival was born in 2008, and has been the flagship event in Hull’s growing cultural landscape ever since, attracting more people each year.
For them, it is crucial that ‘Freedom’ is more than just a name, and that the festival always represents and explores concepts of freedom through our programme.

To celebrate the Freedom Festival diversity, four Catalan companies will be performing at the ninth edition of the British Festival : Los Moñekos, Laly Aiguadé & Julian Sicard, Tombs Creatius and La Dinamo
