The resident company this season, Íntims Produccions, is proposing a physical and visual version of the famous story by Nikolai V. Gogol for puppet theatre. A wordless story.

It becomes difficult to live here, in the city of Akaki, without a good anorak in winter. Akaki has one... well, he had one that was very nice. A first-class anorak, wich now is used, old. Akaki needs a new one, but he doesn’t know if he can afford it. It’s a lot of money, a new anorak, and he has a lot of things to pay... although he's working! He dedicates himself body and soul to work, he does everything he can, he tries not to give problems but, still, he does not reach. Despite his hard work, he doesn’t get money enough! And that’s how Akaki’s journey to get money begins. Money that, in turn, he will spend to buy an anorak that allows him to spend the winter peacefully.

Matthieu Siefridt of the French company Blick Theatre mentors the residence of Íntims Produccions. This support is part of the international mentoring program of the Institut Ramon Llull.

The Carlota Soldevila grants are possible thanks to the partnership with the Fundació Banc Sabadell.
