La Fura dels Baus is a Spanish theatre company founded in 1979 in Barcelona; it is known for its street theatre, the use of unusual venues, and its blurring of the boundaries between the audience and the actors. The company’s performances have always been based on the use of technical means, but they have become increasingly impressive and spectacular over the years. Since the early 1990s, they have diversified their creative endeavours, expanding into the fields of digital and street theatre, staging contemporary theatre works and operas, and producing major corporate events. At this year’s festival, they will present To Be or Not to Be, a combination of interactive theatre and audiovisual content that explores the feelings of fear and discomfort experienced by people today. The set design is digital and the audience is in the thick of the action, surrounded by actors who interact with them. In this way members of the audience become the protagonists in the experience, creating a surreal effect together with the actors. With its immersive, physical, real and virtual theatre, La Fura offers an experience that will show you how to overcome fear and not die trying.
The performance will be in Catalan, Slovene and English.
