In 1976, a theatre built on Mount Montjuïc half a century earlier for the 1929 International Exposition was turned into the venue for a festival that has since become a symbol of Barcelona's cultural life and a key event on the European festival calendar. Since then, there have been nearly forty summers of theatre, dance, circus and music.
Grec Festivcal presents BIDE, choreographers, dancers and performers find a place in which to forge connections within a horizontal arts creation structure. Fifty professionals from different disciplines in the world of movement took part in the fifth BIDE meeting in Barcelona. Based on this experience, five dancers were selected to work together for seven days at La Caldera. At the Grec, they will showcase the results of a work-in-progress residency, enabling spectators themselves to intervene in the creative process.
