The first part of the Understory project, by the set designer Xesca Salvà and the playwright Marc Villanueva, is now open to audiences. The project's starting point is the life of bacteria and fungi, and it is divided into two sections which can be seen on consecutive days: Intercanvi de cromos [Trading cards] and Paramecis i meteorits [Paramecia and meteorites].

The first three days are based around an album of trading cards that the artists have designed with Carme Gomila and Odile Carabantes, which the members of the audience will be able to try to complete with all the collections that are a part of it. At the same time as the trading card album, they will exchange various texts and materials which they have been working on with the audience. The cards will be every day presented by different bodies and voices: this is a way of opening up and becoming immersed in a creative process that focuses on the invisible world of fungi through the lenses of science fiction. The trading cards will be available free of charge, and the album will be on sale at cost price. The concept of the album continues in Paramecis i meteorits [Paramecia and meteorites].

Understory is a synonym for undergrowth.
