Digital activities of the Teatre Lliure
The Teatre Lliure in Barcelona (www.teatrelliure.com) will offer exclusively digital programming during the months of May and June due to the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The programming will begin with the Dramatized Readings project, based on the reading that different playwrights will do in radio or audiovisual format of two newly created shows: ‘El gegant del Pi’, by Pau Vinyals, and ‘Els segon principi’, by Mercè Sarrias and Miguel Casamayor.
The Lliure’s proposal also features a digital show accessible 24 hours a day, ‘Màkina SHK’ a chatbot – a computer program for conversation – created from Shakespeare phrases with which users can have a virtual conversation in English. The theatre will also present the audiovisual adaptations for children of four theatrical classics: ‘La casa de Bernarda Alba’, by Federico García Lorca; ‘Terra baixa’, by Àngel Guimerà; ‘Antigone’, by Sophocles, and ‘King Lear’, by Shakespeare.
In addition, the Teatre Lliure joins the initiative ‘Stories of a Europe in crisis and reflection’, created during the confinement by the European network of myths21 public theatres, which is coordinated by the Dramaten in Stockholm and consists of the creation of monologues from Interviews with people who work for the maintenance of essential services, such as health, cleaning or transport personnel. During May and June, the School of Thought also returns, the cycle of conversations about theatre and thought with guests from the culture sector and promoted by the philosopher Marina Garcés and the writer Albert Lladó, who is now adapting to the digital format.
