WHEN THE WALLS TALK. A show by Núria Vila and Laura Clos “Closca”
Laura Clos “Closca” and Núria Vila are two young performing arts professionals trained at the Institut del Teatre (Barcelona). Closca is a scenographer and lighting designer and Núria is a scenographer and architect. Their professional practice has established them as performers with an active voice committed to their social environment.
Together they have created a show that takes as a visual and dramaturgic starting point graffiti understood as traces of different kinds of social concerns. In their areas of activity they first carry out fieldwork exploring the city and photographing it, and based on this material they present When the Walls Talk.
Their project is closely linked to the approaches of the curators and artistic objectives of the PQ19_Catalonia, although their participation in PQ Studio is their own initiative. The artistic direction of the PQ19 has selected their show for the Quadrennial and we want to give them a voice and mark their participation in the event.
