Marçalianes. “I take the road that has led me to you”

Celebration of the creative legacy of Maria-Mercè Marçal

Scene + Debate

Free with pre-booking

A group of creators speak about the ties that bind their work to that of poet Maria-Mercè Marçal, and admit they are Marçalianes. We’re celebrating the legacy of Maria-Mercè online by sharing these artistic voices and inviting everyone to share verses and references to the poet. And you, are you Marçalianes, too?

What reading of Maria-Mercè Marçal's verses do current creators make? How valid is the author in contemporary poetry, but also in the work of musicians, thinkers, photographers and performers?

Marçal continues to be a reference not only as a poet and writer, but also as a woman involved in feminism and freedoms. This is the starting point of a project that, through twelve voices, discovers how this reference is nuanced and updated, adopting as its motto the verse "I take the path that has led me to you."

Joana Gomila, Martí Sales, Íngrid Guardiola, Lucía Herrero, Míriam Cano, Guillem Gavaldà, Marina Herlop, Lucía Piedra, Laia Estruch, Berta García-Lacht, Aina Torres and Nico Roig star in a dozen videos in which they make explicit, and celebrate, the shortcut that takes them to the poet, and they recognize themselves as "marçalians".

Now that we can meet again to meet, throughout the day of November 26, we celebrate the legacy of Maria Mercè Marçal by sharing videos, verses by the author and with a poetry reading in the hall of the CCCB in which Aina Torres, Guillem Gavaldà will participate , Ingrid Guardiola, Raquel Santanera, Maria Sevilla, Blanca Llum Vidal, Maria Isern, Anna Pantinat, Bartomeu Crespí, Maria Callís Cabrera, Laia López Manrique and Mireia Calafell, and some surprises.

If you are also "marçalian", you can share your voice on the networks with the hashtag #marçalianes.

Guillem Gavaldà


From "I love you when I know you naked as a razor" to the poem "Pol·linari", by Guillem Gavaldà: a dialogue where the language, inevitably, is cut off and pollinated.

Berta García-Lacht


Four years ago, Berta García-Lacht took a camera to portray the diversity of breasts that today make up her Proyecto Tetas (Boobs Project): feminist photography that clearly dialogues with Marçal's work.
