These workshops, most of them free, are open to everyone or sometimes dedicated to specific segments of population like unemployed, women in situations of conflict, elderly, dancers, etc...They pursue the double objective of becoming a way of expression for the participants and in the other hand to give visibility to certain situations manifested in our community. We believe deeply in the healing and expressive capacity of art, and we want to work directly with people.



In the current issue we continue laying emphasis on community workshops; we propose five workshops very different in themes and purposes, from an artistic experimentation workshop with elderly people to an audiovisual research workshop and a workshop for women with experience in conflict.

DANCING FAMILIES WORKSHOP (concept and direction: Juan Eduardo López)

Dancing Families is a project that looks for strengthening the bonds between the different members of a family through art. It also promotes social cohesion while sharing an artistic experience and a collective creation. As the philosopher  Vladimir Jankélevitch said, one can live without art, without playing, without love… but surely not so well.  

A workshop for families with children from 4 to 12 years old. The duration is 1h45min/2h with a 15 minute break.

From the start of the project in 2003 in Barcelona, it has had the participation of renowned national and international artists and professionals such as Sol Picó, Mariona Sagarra, Àngels Margarit, Rootlessroot Company (Greece), Compagnie 7273 (Switzerland), Damián Muñoz, Andrés Corchero, Mal Pelo, Marcel.lí Antúnez, Albert Vidal, Joan Baixas...Between others.

The program for 2012 is as follows: 

July 1st: Centre Cívic de la Barceloneta. Christian Atanasiu (Theatre, pantomime and masks)

July 7th: Fundació Joan Miró. Juan Eduardo López. (Creative games)

July 8th: MNAC. Juan Eduardo López. (Creative games)

July 12th and 13th: Deltebre. Juan Eduardo López. (Creative games)

July 14th: Sabadell. Juan Eduardo López. (Creative games)

July 15th: Centre Cívic de la Barceloneta. Sachiko Fullita. (Dance and theatre)




Come to experience new ways which link and strengthen creativity and collective participation!

The workshop costs 8€ each family/session*

*Unfortunately this year we haven't been granted the same amount of resources we did the last few years. This is the reason why we've had to ask for the contribution of the families in order to cover the minimum expenses. This is also the reason of the director delivering several of the workshops this year.
