Commissioned by Omnium Cultural, Barcelona Provincial Council and the City of Manresa, all these names worked together in developing the awards ceremony night in Santa Lucia, the most important literary evening in Catalunya, this year held in the magnificent hall of the Teatre Kursaal in Manresa.
We wanted to dedicate the night to Surrealism – a genre that has contributed to the internationalisation of Catalan arts and which some of us have made our own on multiple occasions. Based on several classical poets and writers in our literature, Pere Faura, Insectotròpics and Tito Carlos offered a series of tributes to the surrealists which were combined with the awards and speeches of the winners and dignitaries.
All together it was a dynamic dance choreography, food for the imagination, stunning imagery under a mobile structure created for the occasion by Jordi Queralt. The result was an enormous explosion of energy and creativity.
