The Passion of Ulldecona
A show of the life and work of Jesus full of theatrical dynamism, where the sequencing of the scenes will make the viewer immersed in a story full of tenderness, despair, emotion, tension, joy..., that will not leave anyone indifferent.
500 years of history
In 2012, a unique document 1512 was discovered in the Chapter and Diocesan archives of Tortosa, certifying that more than 500 years ago, in Ulldecona, religious representations were already being made.
In the Parish Archives of Ulldecona, within the "Book of Resolutions of the Clergy of Ulldecona (1558-1840)", a "Descent" was found in manuscript that was studied by Jaume Romeu Figueras in 1962 and duly treated in his work "The texts on the Descent of the Cross in Catalonia ". The document in question is a text of 248 verses that was part of a set of acts or pictures about the passion of Christ.
Recently, representations of this fragment of the manuscript have been made, in ancient Catalan, and it is known as the "Descent of the Cross" act .
More than 60 years of representations
The current Pasión de Ulldecona was created in 1955 by Josep M. Rafí Poblet. After interpreting several rewritten texts, in 1964 the Spanish version of Josep M. Junyent Quintana was released. In 1993 this text was alternately combined with a new text in Catalan by Jaume Vidal i Alcover, and since 2014 the Catalan-language version of the playwright Ignacio Rueda Fábregas was released, after making a redaction of the most current evangelical text from the original work of Junyent Quintana.
