COMMUNIO is the result of an investigation into the social commitment, past and present, of Christianity. Raul Prat and Sara Toledo present a performance piece that invites a 21st century audience to attend the celebration of mass.
Sharing an interest in rites, congregations and contention, the collective bring us their first work, which aims to place the spectator in a position of uncomfortable reflection.
This is achieved by six images shown consecutively and continuously, guided by the performers who recreate a group of choirboys. Combining dance, spoken word and installation, different scenes are created on stage that playfully question the concept of communion.
Raul Prat (Huesca, 2001) and Sara Toledo (Madrid, 2001) met in September 2019. They both completed a degree in Audiovisual Communications at Madrid’s Complutense University.
Raul was working on personal projects relating to photography while Sara combined her work as an actress with her own audiovisual creation projects.
Nonetheless, a common language and shared artistic goals made them keen to work together, using performance arts as the medium through which to develop their aims.
Sixth 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.
