Winning project of one of the Teatre Lliure Extraordinary Grants to the creation Carlota Soldevila and one of the Ciutat de Barcelona 2020 Scholarships
The director and playwright Pau Masaló directs the Lliure's contribution to Viu Montjuïc! El parc de la cultura [Long live Montjuïc! The park of culture], which we organise with the other cultural institutions on the mountain. A walk through the cemetery will show us the social and urban dynamics that are reflected in it, and lead us to consider how we process death from a social and political point of view, and to understand our relationship with work and rest.
Crítica Award 2021 to the Street Arts show.
Foucault said that "cemeteries then came to constitute, no longer the sacred and immortal heart of the city, but the other city." The cemetery is one of the most important symbolic places in any settlement. It is a "text" where it is possible to discern the community's social contradictions, urban dynamics, and the value given to life. In short, the cemetery is a concise and silent version of the city itself, and of its history and character. The etymological origin of the word comes from the Latin coemeterium, which literally means bedroom or resting place. Ciutat dormitori [Dormitory town] is conceived in terms of a travelling recitative, a kind of musical road movie, a critical and collective walk aimed at gaining a better understanding of the city's idiosyncrasy and the character of its inhabitants. This guided tour provides unexpected encounters with workers who tell their own stories and broaden our perspective of a location like this one.
