Antic Teatre has, for the past 12 years, run a community arts project with local residents aged 65+ aimed at making them active participants in the cultural and artistic life of the city. This year, we introduce the Adolescènics 12@17 laboratory, a new line of community action, this time involving young people and conceived in collaboration with Dansalut and Fundación Albert. This move underscores Antic Teatre’s endeavours in guaranteeing cultural democracy and increasing the understanding, enjoyment and practice of contemporary performance arts in our immediate surroundings. We also kick off a networking collaboration with Mercat de les Flors, joining up with the young people from the Moving project directed by Maria Ferré in the Poble Sec neighbourhood.
