Organized by: Konvent de Cal Rosal and Antic teatre




Fifth edition of KONVENT A L’ANTIC: the once-yearly chance to see, in Barcelona, work by artists living at Konvent de Cal Rosal, a former, late 19th century convent that has become a multidisciplinary and self-managed arts centre.

Just like Antic Teatre itself, Konvent is a cultural disrupter: a space for art, but at the same time a way of creating and understanding culture within a geographical context. Both spaces are dedicated to the constant tracking and observation of the arts scene, as well as fostering and promoting new work.  The Antic Teatre/Konvent combo has been the instigator of many well-travelled shows such as Rebota rebota y en tu cara explota, by Agnés Mateus and Quim Tarrida, winner of the Crítica Noves Tendències 2017, FAD Sebastià Gasch Aplaudiment 2018, and Butaca 2018 Noves Aportacions Escèniques awards.

This 5th edition will showcase projects selected from among this year’s residencies that prioritise working method over end results, and openly reveal the creation processes that have gone into the devising of each particular piece of work.

Inmunda (circus / Work in progress)

The intimacy of thought in front of the bathroom mirror.
The diversity that exists between what we expose of ourselves and the place where we allow to see, feel and hear ourselves.
A machine for heating depilatory wax, a swivel chair; a person waiting for herself. The rite of appearance.
The pleasure in doing it, the annoyance of repeating it, the decadence which we hide from.

Vida, muerte y resurrección (New drama / premiere)

In the sequence of the measures approved by the Generalitat de Catalunya derived from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, Antic Teatre – Espai de Creació postpone Vida, muerte y resurrección.
Vida, muerte y resurrección (Life, death and resurrection) aims to reposition Britney Spears, indisputable icon of pop culture, as a representative of general contemporary culture that can inspire thoughts about the ways we behave, relate to each other, and co-exist. It’s also motivated by the desire to construct something personal, something that by referencing my own life can be recognised and resound with/in others.
