About

A director and playwright, he also works in graphic design and the audiovisual field. He has degrees in Directing and Dramaturgy (Institut del Teatre, Barcelona) and in Audiovisual Communication (Pompeu Fabra University), and has also studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires. Co-founder of the Ignífuga (Fireproof) theatre company, he has been its director for five years. As artistic director and playwright for the company, he has created six shows that have been performed in Spain and Europe. His works have received production support from FiraTàrrega on two occasions and have formed part of the Grec Festival in Barcelona and the Temporada Alta in Girona. He was invited to create a show especially for the international Imaginarius festival (Portugal). In 2016, his mise-en-scène project Utopia received the Adrià Gual Award from the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona. In 2019, he participated as co-creator of the Catalonia pavilion at the Prague Scenography Quadrennial, receiving the award for best exhibition. His latest show to premier is The National Body (Festival Grec - Sala Hiroshima) and Dormitory Town (Teatre Lliure, Premis Barcelona 2020 grant).
His academic formation (relating to the audiovisual world) and his professional experience (as a designer) are evident in his productions, which have a markedly visual character. His works always demonstrate a clear desire for political reflection pertaining to a specific topic, which is revisited from different points of view. Generally his works take their inspiration from classic texts of universal literature. Very often they incorporate the use of cameras and stage projections. Lately, his artistic interest has focused on the relationship between the representation of the real and the fictional construction of the story. His productions never shun direct dialogue with the viewer and always seek to generate a sense of ephemeral community between the artists and the public. He often collaborates with other companies and artistic collectives (Atresbandes, Hotel Col·lectiu Escènic - Lisi Estaras, Carla Rovira, Albert Quesada, Roberto Romei, Herman@s Picohueso…).
