AT THE INS MARIA ESPINALT

The Teatre Lliure passes the baton in the Creadors en RESiDÈNCiA [Creators in RESIDENCE] programme in the 20/21 season to the artist Marc Villanueva Mir, who is undertaking his project with the students at the Maria Espinalt Secondary Institute in Barcelona.

Marc Villanueva Mir began the process with an interest in how adolescents had experienced lockdown, and how they continued to relate to the disciplinary and authoritarian issues involved in the pandemic. Since this initial impetus, the project has been transformed into an exploration of the concept of work: what does work mean? Why do we work? What is the difference between working and not working? What activities would we like to earn a salary for? They are immersing themselves in the world of video games to answer these questions. This is a universe with very close links to adolescence (perhaps more than ever, at a time of pandemics and social distancing), which is full of rings, routines, customisable avatars and virtual coins. It is also an economic sector that has seen its profits soar during the pandemic, and which is aimed primarily at an ideal audience of boys and girls aged between 8 and 15 years old. Together, they attempt to understand video games as a foreshadowing and model of the labour market.

Creadors En RESiDÈNCiA [Creators in RESIDENCE] is a programme by the Barcelona Institute of Culture (ICUB) and the Barcelona Education Consortium (CEB), with the involvement of the Teatre Lliure, which aims to encourage contemporary artistic creation in secondary schools by placing the students in direct and continuous contact with an artist.

MARC VILLANUEVA MIR
He graduated in Stage Management and Playwriting from the Barcelona Theatre Institute and in Literary Studies from the University of Barcelona. He has a master's degree in Applied Theatre Studies from the Institut für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft in Giessen, Germany.
His artistic projects critically interrogate political problems using contemporary languages, and focus above all on the ethical dimensions and dilemmas of representation, the performativity of discourse, and the interrelationships between knowledge and power.
