Festival Escena Poblenou 2021
By Charlotte Stace
The Escena Poblenou Contemporary Creation Festival is a multidisciplinary contemporary performing arts festival that will run from Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th October. It promotes, makes visible and supports artistic and theatrical creations that contemplate new languages, dramaturgies, and forms of relationship with the spectator.
It also highlights the ability of the performing arts to act as a tool for the empowerment of citizens in the construction of our society.Created in 2001 by a private initiative of the dream of two artists living in Barcelona, Ada Vilaró and Sergi Estebanell, it offers a platform to support the exhibition of different contemporary stage projects and enhance the artistic fabric linked to the Poblenou neighbourhood.
This year’s Escena Festival will include performances from Vermouth on Venus, It’s a Real Co-Incidence, Paper Theatre, Reverb, Gradient and Accommodation Congress. If you’re interested in watching these performances, tickets are available online.
