We, at Espronceda, are very happy to invite to you to discover the new Theatre project: “Sessiò de Nuit:Poemes Escènics” under the direction of the Catalan poet Albert Mestres, the performers Ferran Echegaray and Eva Ortega and escenography by José Menchero with the participation of the Italian artist Savina Tarsitano.
Sessió de Nit. Poemes Escènics is a cultural project that wants to reinforce the concept of Scenic Poetry in the city of Barcelona. We’ve carried out investigations to stage a total of seven scenic poems in the Espronceda Center for Art and Culture exhibition hall. These scenic poems of diverse authors have in common the fact of being short and of being thought outside the logic of the conventional theatrical language. On the contrary, they are thought with the logic of poetry, translated in a genuine way on stage. Sessió de Nit is designed so that, once each of the scenic poems has been completed, the audience will go out to the lobby – where there is an exhibition of photographs and paintings by the artist Savina Tarsitano specific to this project – and then return to see the next scenic poem.
