19/04 adapted subtitles and audio description

Iván Morales has adapted the fast-paced novel that earned Nadal Award Francisco Casavella fame: it is an onstage festival with live music about Barcelona in the last 30 years of the twentieth century, as a way to better understand the world of today.

Fernando Atienza, from his thirteen years stealing cars in the shantytowns of Montjuïc, to his thirty-somethings dealing in the alleys adjacent to the Plaza Real, passing through his first youth as a boy for all ambitious financiers of the upper zone, he travels from the Francoism afternoons to the Transition and the '92 Olympic dream. But there will be no day that has left more trace in his biography than "the day of the Watusi": August 15, 1971, the day he saw a body, and even two, for the first time. That foundational moment that, from then on, will accompany you every second of the rest of your life.

The company presented a prequel to the show at the 2023 Grec Festival, Los juegos feroces, on 14 and 15 July. And on 15 October 2023,in commemoration of the author's anniversary, a second proposal was presented at the Castell de Montjuïc.
