Història d’un senglar

by Gabriel Calderón

At 6 p.m.

Sala de dalt
Free entry

Four plays that we could have seen at different theatres in Barcelona if the Festival GREC could have been held as was planned. We will be able to become acquainted with them as if it were the first day of rehearsals, with the actors sitting around the table and with the corresponding explanations from the artistic teams involved.


An actor faces the challenge of playing Richard III, the ruthless monarch in the tragedy by William Shakespeare. This is the opportunity he has been waiting for all his life, but he considers that the rest of the cast are not up to it and he doesn’t like anything that the director proposes to him. During the construction of the character, the actor’s ego grows in importance and his affinities with the English monarch blossom. The two of them are ambitious, intelligent, and willing to use all the weapons at their disposal to get rid of their enemies. As their life stories become intertwined, the relationship between actor, character, and spectator becomes increasingly fragile.

This activity will be streamed on Youtube
