Stage Laboratory

Mos Maiorum + Joan Garriga



In this second session of the Laboratori escènic cycle, theatre group Mos Maiorum presents Solar, an immersive ritual-performance about the landscape, with the collaboration of musician and songwriter Joan Garriga.

We know that human presence in the world as part of the landscape is definitive in a way it has never been before. Yet despite this, the so-called energy transition is being implemented according to the same economic models that have led us to ecological disaster. This is the context in which documentary theatre company Mos Maiorum and musician Joan Garriga reflect on the landscape, that mirror of social conflicts.

Solar is an immersive ritual-performance about the business of installing photovoltaic panels in crop fields in depressed rural areas. A liturgical act with two conflicting worlds: wheat and laser, voice and mirror, memory and cables. Photovoltaic power stations of enormous magnitudes cement fields. Cabled black mirrors replace ears of wheat. What will the workers in the field sing when the field is a power plant? Do mechanical snails dream of electric storms?

After the performance, there’ll be a talk with the company in the foyer of the Teatre CCCB, while we enjoy a beer.

This session is part of the project S+T+ARTS "Repairing the Present", wich aims to foster imaginative thinking by creating spaces of dialogue between Science, Technology, and the Arts.
