The table, like the table we are sharing, as a place where an entire series of policies and ways of interacting unfold.
How do tables help us?

What are the imperatives we assume based on this object?
Who are we when we’re at a table?
What and whom are we with?
What affordances do they allow us?
How can we move at tables?
How many tables are we familiar with?
What tables do we need?
What materials are they made of?

Quim Bigas was born in Malgrat de Mar and now lives between Barcelona and Copenhagen. He is an artist who works in the fields of choreography, dramaturgy and news procedures. He focuses on projects that seek to deploy a sense of place through the device of dance and choreography. The artistic work he has done in recent years, either as research or with formats more designed as a product, uses different elements or constitutions of the event to contribute and conceive encounters. Since 2018, he has been an associate professor of chorography at Den Danske Scenekunstskolen in Copenhagen. Between 2018 and 2021, he has been part of the EU Dancing Museums project in conjunction with the Miró Foundation (Barcelona) and Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona). Between 2018 and 2020 he was part of the EU project More Than This in conjunction with University Carlos III (Madrid) and Mateo Feijóo-Naves Matadero (Madrid). In 2019, he premiered DV (Desplaçament Variable) at Mercat de les Flors, in addition to participating in a series of performative lectures around archives in DV (Desplega Visions). He also continues to tour with his previous works Molar, Appraisers and La Llista.

We consolidate the experience of a more democratic dialogue with the third programme of La Taula [The Long Table]. This time round, we offer you seven events with a line-up featuring conversation with the hosts Denise Duncan, Quim Bigas, Isabel Sucunza and Oriol Puig Taulé. The latter three artists will be responsible for two sessions each, but will be covering different topics in each one. In this original project by the Split Britches company, anyone can talk about what they want, starting from an initial topic while always following the etiquette of listening to each other.
