And now what, with all this uncertainty? Well, today we’ve presented the 29th Temporada Alta Festival, which will be held from 7th October to 8th December. Preparing this year’s event has been difficult and we don’t know how it will unfold yet, but we wanted to maintain a schedule based on the usual axes, with a total of 69 on-site shows and 137 performances, including 10 international proposals, 20 festival productions and co-productions and 52 Catalan creations, with a total of 21 premières.
Here are some keys to this year’s schedule:
—We’ll open the festival on 7th October with Bouvetøya, a show directed by Julio Manrique.
—We’ll maintain our commitment to national productions, with directors and playwrights such as Julio Manrique, Àlex Rigola, Lluïsa Cunillé, Lurdes Barba, Joan Arqué, David Selvas, Jordi Prat i Coll and Llàtzer Garcia, as well as companies such as José y Sus Hermanas, Mos Maiorum, Les Impuxibles and CaboSanRoque.
—Despite the current circumstances, we’re presenting an international programme with names such as Jan Lauwers and Viviane De Muynck, Guy Cassiers, Romeo Castellucci and Pippo Delbono.
—The week devoted to contemporary creation will take place from 19th to 22nd November and will support creators with an international reach, such as La Veronal, El Conde de Torrefiel, Mal Pelo, Lali Ayguadé, Xavi Bobés and Israel Galván, among many others.
—We’ve got news for you: we’re launching our remote schedule. In late September we’ll announce the new formats and all the shows that will form part of them at a special press conference.
—Temporada Alta guarantees social distancing at its venues, in accordance with the COVID-19 regulations, and will refund the amounts of the tickets if any performances are cancelled.
