City, Conflict and Emancipation

Cities are spaces of a multiplicity of lives, stories, and worlds. The writers Marta Sanz and Cristina Morales have described in their works this structural violence incarnated by cities and have pondered the possibilities of emancipation beyond the limits imposed by the norm. The writer and activist Brigitte Vasallo, who has also reflected on these questions, moderates the discussion. The session concludes with the staging of the monologue Parlen d’una revolució (They Talk about a Revolution), an original piece by the dramaturg Denise Duncan about the experience of being a black woman in Catalonia, which is performed by the singer and actor Yolanda Sey.
