Festival Sâlmon 2021
The ninth edition is starting a new shared curatorship cycle that will extend for two years.
The intensive version of this festival takes place from 17 to 21 February, with the event reaching its ninth edition this year and revolving around live arts. Sâlmon 2021 is launching a new shared-dialogue model, organised jointly with the Antic Teatre, La Caldera, El Graner and La Poderosa and featuring the artists Sofia Asencio, Bea Fernàndez, Ariadna Rodríguez and Iñaki Álvarez as the festival curators, and Dianelis Diéguez as the artistic and organisational coordinator. In addition, this year's edition continues with several initiatives throughout the year, culminating in the 2022 edition.
The festival officially opens on 17 February, with Pantalla pròdiga, an artistic offering created over the last fifteen days in an experimentation laboratory based around television formats at the Fabra i Coats - Art Factory with Carolina Campos, Félix Pérez-Hita, Marc Vives and Raúl Alaejos.
This year’s edition takes television language as a medium for researching and hybridising formats and disciplines, always in relation to live arts. That is why the Sâlmon 2021 will be held over three days in a purpose-built television studio and performance setting in the Sala MAC at the Mercat de les Flors. It will lead to a particular television programme, with creators such as Ingrid Guardiola, Orquesta (Anto Rodríguez and Òscar Bueno), Marc O’Callaghan, Isabel Do Diego, Olga Mesa and Nazario Díaz all dropping by.
Besides the studio, the Sala PB at the Mercat de les Flors will be rounding off every day with a stage work, with the Fabra i Coats - Art Factory offering the official opening and Graner the closing event for the festival. Besides on-site activities, which will have reduced audience capacities this year, part of the programme will be broadcast live or shown later on Betevé, the festival’s official media channel.
