Teatre Lliure de Montjuïc Barcelona
Cooperatively founded in 1976 by a collective of artists promoted by Fabià Puigserver, Barcelona's Teatre Lliure is one of the most important theater creation and exhibition centers in Catalonia. It has two venues: one in Montjuïc, with a large room (Sala Fabià Puigserver) and a small format (Espai Lliure), and the other in Gràcia, with a medium format room. The versatility of the rooms is characteristic of the Teatre Lliure; the spectator will find a different configuration of the stalls each time, making going to Lluire a totally unique experience each time.
These spaces present shows based on texts and proposals from various disciplines and stage languages, concentrating their activity in four large areas: creation, culture, education and social action. The public is a fundamental piece that in each performance shares individual and collective feelings, making the theater experience a cultural pleasure.
The current artistic program is organized around four axes: scene, culture, education and the digital world. In this sense, the Espai Lliure has been used to house the Educational Program and the theater residency programme.
Fabià Puigserver room
Inaugurated in November 2001, the Fabià Puigserver Hall is equipped with the latest stage technology that updates the spirit of the Gràcia hall: total versatility in the arrangement of the stage space and in its relationship with the spectator.
The Espai Lliure is a room with a Greek cross floor plan, with four retractable stands that make different stage and audience arrangements possible. Designed for small-format productions and rehearsals, the Espai Lliure makes intimate contact between the viewer and the show possible.
