FESTIVALS COPRODUCED BY ANTIC TEATRE
– Festival INFLUX
The INFLUX Festival, organised by Habitual Video Team, is dedicated to audiovisual performance arts. INFLUX backs creators who use video and digital media as the basic tools for artistic expression in their performance pieces. It includes work from visual artists, musicians, poets, dancers, performers and performance creators who transcend barriers and work in the in-between spaces, such as Jakob Draminsky Højmark, Miriam Reyes, Marcel·lí Antúnez, Miquel Jordà, Khea Ziater and Bradien + Eduard Escoffet. INFLUX aims to become an established platform providing visibility for local creators from Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia, while at the same time being open to artists from other places, and helping to provide a multifaceted vision of the diversity that exists in contemporary creation. http://www.influxfestival.org/
– Experimental Room Festival – 4th edition
This festival is for the presentation of small or medium sized performance pieces that are based on autobiographical material, intimate concerns or personal experiences and which show a clear interest in experimentation and research in time, space and with the audience. The works on show, by national and international artists, will be formatted for small audience groups (Human Specific), for unconventional spaces (Site Specific) and for long-lasting performances (Time Specific). Experimental Room Festival is an official member of “In Touch Human Specific Performing Art”. http://www.experimentalroomfestival.com/
– Enmedio Festival (Political action and art)
Enmedio are a group of professionals in the field of graphics (designers, photographers, film makers, artists) who, dissatisfied by the lack of connections between art and political action, have decided to abandon their usual work environments and place themselves en medio (in the middle); nowhere in particular and everywhere at once. From here they explore the transforming potential of images and narratives by means of spectacular interventions, using everything they have at their disposal: photography, media, design, theatre… in this way they interfere with the dominant discourse and interrupt the official world view. http://www.enmedio.info/
– Stop Motion Barcelona, the first short film festival in Spain dedicated to stop motion animation.
This festival, organised in collaboratión with the Barcelona Animation Academy, emerged from the desire to bring to the attention of new generations and the general public this classic animation technique, increasingly in vogue these days thanks to studios such as LAIKA or Aardman.
1. Children’s show and workshop: children will have the opportunity of viewing a selection of children’s stop-motion short films from different periods and countries, and then take part in a workshop.
2. Short film festival: there will be an approximately two-hour screening of selected short films from around the world, as this is an international festival. The screening will be followed by an awards ceremony, with prizes awarded by a jury and by the audience. http://www.laacademiadeanimacion.com
FESTIVALS IN WHICH ANTIC TEATRE TAKES PART:
– Festival SÂLMON< (Organized by: Antic Teatre, La Caldera, El Graner, La Poderosa)
A new river for Sâlmon. Originally, performing arts festivals took place in spring, when the paths were reopened and the seas could be navigated again. With the body at the center, words, dance and music mattered as much as everything that revolved around it. The normal pace of life was suspended and the exceptional nature of the encounters was celebrated beyond the work in the fields and streets until it reached the theater where the city was invited to get into play. In the background, the landscape of a fertile ground irrigated by rivers represented a new opportunity or possible fest. https://www.festivalsalmon.com/en/
– Festival GREC (Organised by: Ajuntament de Barcelona)
For the past five years Antic Teatre has been part of the GREC Festival’s official programme, with events and performances scheduled over the month of July. Last year’s “L’Antic al GREC” was a resounding success, and we hope this will be repeated in 2017. The programming for 2017 will be finalised over the next few months. http://lameva.barcelona.cat/grec/
– INSITU – ARTS OF MOVEMENT EXHIBITION
IN SITU is an annual showcase that aims to provide visibilty, recognition and context to independent creation within Catalan movement-based arts. The showcase provides an opportunity for independent artists and artistic collectives to open up their work to new exhibition experiences and extend access to a wider, more diverse audience. IN SITU will have artists producing SITE SPECIFIC VERSIONS of their work, adapting it to the Arts Santa Mònica venue and creating a walk-through performance experience in the building. http://mostrainsitu.com/
– MAKING HISTORY (IES) CYCLE
Biannual cycle curated by La Poderosa with collaboration from Mercat de les Flors, Blue Project, Antic Teatre and Sala Hiroshima.
Hacer Historia(s) is a contemporary dance cycle that looks backwards with the desire to construct history from a personal gaze: BODY, MEMORY, FILE AND TRANSMISSION.
Since 2000, there is a tendency in contemporary performance arts to retrieve works from the recent past. Hacer Historia(s) looks at some of these approaches, replacing works from different periods with contemporary pieces that stand out from the usual repertory and that, far from fixating nostalgically on the past, are looking to give the selected accounts a shake up and reflect on their relation to the present. https://www.anticteatre.com/making-history-ies-vol-ii-cycle/
– Escena Poble Nou
The Poblenou Escena Festival for Contemporary Creation brings together today’s multidisciplinary creators and performers in a festival that has close links with the area and the current social environment. It aims to empower, promote awareness of and support shows that experiment with new performance languages, new forms of drama and new ways of interacting with audiences. Committed to culture and society, it generates a dialogue between sector professionals, audiences, the neighbourhood and the city, while keeping its sights on the international sphere.
Currently under the artistic direction of Ada Vilaró i Casals working with a great team of professionals, the festival has been running uninterruptedly for 16 years, making it a reference point for the sector and recipient of two prestigious awards.
