Is being a spectator a way of life?
Do spectacles have the spectators they deserve?
Do spectators have the spectacles they deserve?
Types of spectators: the spectator who coughs, the spectator who sleeps, the spectator who unwraps a piece of candy.
Can one live off of being a spectator?
The spectator and expectations: are they a good pair?
Why do the spectators at the Liceu whistle while those at the Teatre Lliure censor themselves?
Do we applaud beyond our possibilities?

Oriol Puig Taulé has a degree in Art History and a Master in Theatre Studies. He has worked in several areas of stage creation in Sabadell, Barcelona and Berlin, and has been writing about theatre in various media for more than years (Assaig de Teatre, Entreacte, (Pausa.), Serra d'Or, Barcelona Metròpolis). He is the head of the performing arts section in Núvol, el digital de cultura, where he is a critic and theatrical chronicler.

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.
