Margarida Xirgu Square is closed to traffic and cannot be parked on it.
The El Arabesco collective proposes a tour for only 6 spectators through the underground vaults of the Teatre Lliure Montjuïc. The audience will closely flow the thread of long story.
We get the sense that the theatre’s audience is not very fond of this show; there are too many historical references and sometimes it feels like a high school class.
Ironically, history fans aren’t very interested in a play that is not very academic and not only omits important names and dates but is also told with objects, a bit of theatre.
And as if that weren’t enough, the play lasts two hours, and even though it’s funny at first, you’ll see how at the end it will be all uphill.
What defines us? That is the question that is the focus of the 2022 edition of Katharsis, always associated with the origins of this special programme, in which we constantly ask ourselves what theatre is. Asking it ourselves means asking ourselves what we are as human beings and citizens. The boundaries that surround us create forms that define us politically, humanly, socially, culturally or artistically, even though we do not like some definitions, and we look for ways to change them from the fringes. This Katharsis features artists who use history, collective memory and even appearance to cross lines that make us rethink where we come from and where we are going.
