Mercat de les Flors - Sala MACThursday 18 from 15 p.m. to 20 p.m.Access to the TV Set: 15 p.m. and 17.30 p.m.Ticket 12€

The MAC stage at Mercat de les Flors becomes a "plató" and performing stage for artists and audiences to build together an artistic apparatus as they produce a peculiar television show. An experimental space, a research on the television language in relation to performing arts, a long family gathering or wild long take on the hybridization of formats and disciplines in and out of sight.

Ingrid Guardiola

Cultural activity is the tip of an iceberg, the visible part of an incalculable accumulation of opinions and comments multiplied by the social media. Sudden outbursts and fleeting info stimuli that do not always help us grasp the essence of the matter. With the social media the petty critics have proliferated, but so have the know-alls who turn the algorithmic recommendations of some content platforms into their discursive resource. Is it possible to discuss the programming without reproducing these models? Using critical analysis, as if it were a question of the fragments of a discourse, both loving and surgical in its precision? Here, it is a matter of submitting the programming of the day to the scrutiny of Ingrid Guardiola who, as she says herself, does what she can, neither more nor less.

SOROLLAR

Orquesta(Anto Rodríguez and Óscar Bueno)
The noise of the programme, live sound performances with different guest musicians.

Orquesta present their songs in a concert scattered among the programme contents. They seek the intersection between presences, absences and distances, electronics, traditional songs, dance, Spanish pop music from the 70s, the melody of the alarm clock, applause, footsteps and a lullaby.

SOAP OPERA(CHAP. 1)

Guillem Mont de Palol,Márcia Lança and Daniel Pizamiglio

A three-episode television series, created in the absolute present during three consecutive days for the Sâlmon21 TV Set. The participating artists will write, direct and perform from the starting point to the final product, without any prior agreement or script. The space will be transformed into a photographic film where all the gestures and actions of the three performers will be recorded and edited in the retina of the television viewers.

VISIONS

Alex Reynolds“Esta puerta, esta ventana”
Projection of videos that meander between disciplines.

”Esta puerta, esta ventana” is shot in the same space at different times and the only way in which Alma Söderberg and Nilo Gallego come together is through the sound, transforming the place where we see them into a physical echo of the only space that unites them: the virtual space of a film. Where does the individual self end and the collective self begin? How can we live together at our own pace? How do we address, affect and manipulate each other?

VERSIONS

Aitana Cordero Vico and Jaume Ferrete Vázquez"susurra con tipo flojita muy flojo"
Performative presentations specially adapted for the TV Set.

Aitana Cordero and Jaume Ferrete continue their conversation following their meeting in the framework of the Cruzados programme at La Poderosa."Intense, generous, playful and committed practice ... that opens up a world, displays care, makes explicit confidence and whispers the distance of the intimacy of an agreed time of ten intense days ... something unrepeatable, fragile in its essence and powerful in its power". (Bea Fernández)

ÉTAT SECOND

Symphony of The Seasand DD Dorvillier
The state of altered consciousness in which some authors enter when writing stories, a combination of abstraction and concentration, is called “état second”.

DD Dorvillier and Symphony of The Seas meet in État Second, an unstable, shifting place that defers any promise of location, to talk about “permanent dance”. An idea for a conversation that is based on what goes unsaid, an abstract movement that moves something more than words. We will reflect on the great themes of Dance as a performative act and hopefully we will succeed in leaving the light behind to enter into the darkness.

ÉTAT SECOND

Symphony of The Seasand DD Dorvillier
The state of altered consciousness in which some authors enter when writing stories, a combination of abstraction and concentration, is called “état second”.

DD Dorvillier i Symphony of The Seas es troben a “État Second”, un lloc inestable, bellugadís i que ajorna qualsevol promesa d'ubicació, per parlar de "Danza Permanente." Una idea conversa que es fonamenta en el que no es diu, un moviment abstracte que mou alguna cosa més que les paraules. Pensarem en els grans temes de la Dansa com a acte performatiu i amb sort, aconseguirem deixar enrere la llum per anar cap a la foscor.

VERSIONS

DD Dorvillier and Zeena Parkins“Danza Permanente”
Performative presentations specially adapted for the TV Set.

Danza Permanente is a note-by-note transposition in movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 Op. 132 in A minor. Almost in silence, the dancers act both as instruments and as performers and use the formal and sensitive functions of the score to provoke, through dance, that state of thought and feeling that seems so exclusive to music.

TEATRON

Rubén Ramos Nogueira
Reflections and critical approaches to the phenomena of the performing arts.

Are you sick to death of looking through the listings and finding mostly musicals, stand-up comedians, versions of Shakespeare in leather jackets, contemporary dance from the time of the Barcelona Olympics, and zombie culture in general?

TIME OF GOING TO BED

Roger Pelàez

The time of going to bed is the time when we discard everything we are meant to be, everything that is random, false and parasitic in ourselves, and we are left alone with our own insignificance. The time when we are most fragile. “I will come with my cries, my stutter, my monotonous syllables ... You will be ill in a new hospital, you will lie dying on a stone bed and you will be victims. I will be the worm and you will be the wood.”

JUST DESIRE de Søren Evinson

“I reflect on the idealization of contemporary culture through the contortions of body, voice and word, blurring the moral and formal boundaries between the theatrical and the performance. My work is collaborative and multidisciplinary, distorting reality to formalize new fantasies about what is spectacular.”

Just Desire is a blend of continuous, bright and soft, delirious fantasies. It is like the finish on the most exciting consumer products of our time. Like a high-end smartphone, a luxury perfume or a Tesla Roadster, we are offered the performance as the object of our desire.
