Anna Alcubierre / Paco Azorín / / Sílvia Delagneau / Max Glaenzel / Eugenio Szwarcer

We could say that Anna Alcubierre, Paco Azorín,, Sílvia Delagneau, Max Glaenzel and Eugenio Szwarcer form part of a generation. They trained mainly at the Institut del Teatre and almost all of them started work in the late 1990s in a context where cultural policies and economic investment were very different from today.

We think that what defines this generation is not a specific identity as a group but the heterogeneity of how they understand and approach scenic design. From the lighting work of to Szwarcer’s use of video and documentary languages, from the close link between Azorín’s stage direction and scenography to Glaenzel firmly assuming the role of scenographer, or Delagneau’s character design to the bridge between Alcubierre’s stage and exhibition spaces, they have all given a wide and personal meaning to the old, beautiful and controversial word “scenography”.

In a country as small as ours this plurality means richness and possibilities. But alongside the economic, political and social transformations we are experiencing, it places us in an uncertain and changing setting full of questions about the future.

Our desire has been to avoid a retrospective show where they are a theme to be exhibited. The idea of sharing a play, a reflection on recent cases of social conflict using their tools and artistic languages has been a valuable material for the creators. The stand we present has been built around their contributions.

Salamanca, 1981.

I graduated in Scenography from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona. I trained as a scenographer at the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and have done several photography and dressmaking courses at Felicidad Duce, the Fashion School of LCI Barcelona.

I am currently working as a scenographer, costume designer and creator in disciplines such as theatre and the visual and audiovisual arts.

In 2014 I received the Adrià Gual Prize of the Institut del Teatre, which allowed me to present my show Només ens vol protegir del cel at the Festival Grec 2015.

In the last two years I have participated as scenographer and costume designer in 12 productions in theatres and festivals such as Göteborgs Operans Danskompani (Sweden), The Royal Danish Theatre and Ballet (Denmark), Tanz Luzerner Theater (Switzerland), Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, Teatre Lliure, Festival Grec, Teatros del Canal and Festival Temporada Alta.

As a costume designer I would highlight my work as costume designer for the choreographer Marcos Morau (La Veronal) in Rothko Chapel (Göteborgs Operans Danskompani, 2017), Pasionaria (Teatros del Canal and Festival Grec, 2018), Carmen (The Royal Danish Theatre and Ballet, 2018), and Orfeo ed Euridice (Tanz Luzerner Theater, 2019). Some of my other work are as scenographer and costume designer for the Fundación Señor Serrano (2018, Kingdom, Festival Grec), Oriol Pla (Travy, 2018, Teatre Lliure, Barcelona), Alex Rigola (Ivànov, 2017, Teatre Lliure, Barcelona), and Albert Arribas (Actes obscens en espai públic, 2017, Teatre Nacional de Catalunya).

I am the founder of the company Indi Gest. Although in 2015 I stopped being a member, I continue participating as part of the creative team for productions by Jordi Oriol (L’Empestat) and Alícia Gorina (Watching Peeping Tom) which whom I also regularly work outside the company, such as in Blasted (Temporada Alta 2017 and TNC, 2018), and Déu és Bellesa (2017, Teatre Maldà).

Drinking from the sources of American rationalist architecture, Camarón de la Isla, the Lumière brothers, Bruce Nauman, Alvar Aalto or Jean Prouvé, new technologies, Olafur Eliasson, the Berlin scene, Caravaggio, The Young Ones, the Velvet Underground, rumba and punk, Leonardo da Vinci or shanty building in general (among many others) places us in context. Performance, time codes, installation, scenic artifacts, new and old lighting systems, spatial dramaturgy, lack or excess of narrative, the law of gravity, mechanisms of perception, rotaflex and linguistics are some of our tools of creation. Trained in visual arts, theater and architecture, our work is characterized by the permanent search in the fields of light, space, and the objects that occupy it through the transgressive attitude that involves placing oneself within the limits of paratheatricality. We have worked, among others, with General Elèctrica, Frederic Amat, Societat Doctor Alonso, Àlex Rigola, Marcel·lí Antúnez, Constanza Brnčić, Augustí Fernandez, Albert Pla, Standstill, La Fura dels Baus, Agrupación Señor Serrano, Mal Pelo, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Los Corderos, Cabo San Roque, Sol Picó, Maria Arnal and Marcel Bagès, Rosalía…



She studied design at EINA, graduated in Scenography from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, did a postgraduate course in Art Direction at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, an interuniversity master’s degree in Cultural Management at the UOC and is currently preparing her PhD at the Universitat de Girona. She is a member of the research teaching staff at EINA, University School of Design attached to the UAB, where she teaches classes on the bachelor’s degree in Design and the master’s degree in Research in Art and Design.

She has 20 years of experience in museographic and scenographic spaces. She currently directs the studio Espai e, where they work in the field of design, scenography and architecture. They develop spatial projects based on narrative and, therefore, consider themselves as interpreters of contents. They work with cultural institutions, enjoy teamwork and consider sustainability and technology in their projects.

She defines scenography as a multidisciplinary language that can act in different and unlimited settings.

Some of her projects, whether museographic, scenographic or investigative, have been recognised with national and international awards.
