The Pillowman

Jocular Theatre and the North American Institute present a viciously funny psychological thriller. Set in an unnamed totalitarian state, 'The Pillowman' tells the story of Katurian, a writer who is being questioned by the police on account of a series of murders that bear some disturbing similarities to his fictional tales.

Cesc Gelabert: Tríptic

Three-part dance programme created by dancer and choreographer Cesc Gelabert. 'Suite Santos' is a collection of four works by Gelabert featuring music from Carles Santos, revisited and rethought for the occasion. 'Domènech' brings together 12 video shorts that Gelabert produced and performed in mid-2013, in reaction to the closure of the studio on C/ Domènech where his company had rehearsed and been housed for 27 years. The third part sees Gelabert pay tribute to Vicente Escudero, a unique character, multifacted and forward-thinking, who transformed flamenco thanks to his individual performance methods.
