Grec Festival hosts My Father is an Ogre

La Baldufa will perform at the Grec Festival with its latest creation, My Father is an Ogre. Performances will take place on 14th and 15th July, at 6pm, at Sala Pina Bausch in Mercat de les Flors. The show is a coproduction of Grec Festival and Théâtre de l’Archipel in Perpignan.

Directed by Jokin Oregi once again, My Father is an Ogre talks about the wickedness of the good and the virtue of the villains, as well as punishment, guilt, solidarity and justice. It’s a journey to the country of Ogres, a song of hope and a story of redemption.

We take the opportunity that we have in Barcelona, within the framework of such a prestigious festival as Grec!

Creative residence in Olot

From 11 to 22 June, the rehearsal room of the Teatre Principal d’Olot will be hosting the future show of La Baldufa. Two weeks of creation, ideas, dreams, testing, changes and excitement. Two very profitable weeks of seclusion in a land of volcanoes, which will serve to flesh out the skeleton of the show that, under the direction of Martí Torras, will premiere in Lleida in January 2019. Our heartfelt thanks to the Teatre!

Finally, Pinocchio in Lleida!

On November 30th, our latest production was released in Salt, within the framework of the Temporada Alta Festival. After the flood of emotions and comments we received either from programmers or other companies as well as from the audience, we felt delighted and at a time for reflection. We wanted this newcomer to grow and mature, so, without a second thought, we got down to make it. Since then, we have been working on the show with a clear goal, let it obtain our signature.

We had not even finished with the joys of November yet, when, after having been performing The Imaginary Book since 2006, we started performing The Happy Prince at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, where we have been from December 11th 2014 to January 11th 2015. The rush of emotions has been permanent and it has kept us enthusiastic and almost overwhelmed. It has been a wonderful experience, a real treat! We can only be grateful for the response we have received and we hope this is an ‘à bientôt’.

Finally! Our next major event is here!
This weekend, on Friday at 20h30, Saturday at 18h and Sunday at 12h, we are to fill the Teatre de l’Escorxador in Lleida with our adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s story, Pinocchio. We have loved the chance we have been given by Margarida Troguet, the theatre’s director, to play at home and share this latest project with you, which we hope will go a long way. We count on you, on your warmth and on your comments.

We are expecting an intense, long weekend that will arrive with plenty of new emotions and reflections, for sure. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we will do! See you at the Theatre!

Temporada Alta to welcome the premiere of Pinocchio

La Baldufa is to release our latest production Pinocchio, based on the original story of Carlo Collodi, within the framework of the Temporada Alta festival, at Teatre de Salt, on November 30th 2014, at 12h.

Through this show, directed by Jokin Oregui, screenwriter and director of the company Marie de Jongh, and accompanied by the music of Óscar Roig, we will explain the story of a mischievous puppet-child. Pinocchio, who is free and has no prejudices, will immerse himself in diverse adventures, which will let us reflect on aspects such as the worthiness of education or values as responsibility and sincerity.
A show practically with no dialogue, which is played, evolves and grows out of several artistic and technical resources, where paper and wood are the base of versatile and organic scenery.
The actors of Pinocchio, Carles Pijuan, Emiliano Pardo and Enric Blasi, who together with Miki Arbizu, lightning designer and technician in scene, will interact during the whole show.

La Baldufa wanted to show our gratitude to Temporada Alta festival for having trusted our work and we do encourage you all to accompany us in such a special day!

Thanks for making the Festival Esbaiola’t 2014 possible!

7th edition is finished and we are satisfied. A year marked by an important change in the format of the festival, from the wrist-belt to the tickets, nonetheless, fortunately, the audience has accepted it willingly by enjoying the great performances, with a weather that has finally respected the festival.
What we want is a quality festival, where the audience enjoys the shows comfortably and avoiding crowds. Maintaining this idea of constant improvement, we have made and will make the changes we feel that are necessary to keep growing positively.

This edition 2014 has been a success. 23 out of 30 shows have been sold out, reaching an 84% average of the venues’ capacity. This has made us thought of increasing the number of performances next year, having more alternatives and letting all the people have a place.

We didn’t want to miss the chance to be thankful to those who have helped us to make this Esbaiola’t possible: to the fourteen companies, which have given us the best of their talent; to the Ajuntament d’Esterri, for putting things easy and rely us; to all the traders, hoteliers, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs who have participated as financial sponsors; to l’Escola Llar, for making us feel as at home; to the Ecomuseu, who are always there for all that is required; to Kina Creu, Estarna, Petacanyes and Bastoners, thank you for being so funny! And finally, and most importantly, we are thankful to the audience for their support and involvement.

Thank you for trusting us and, especially, for coming to the Valls d’Àneu to ‘Esbaiolar-vos’!

Pinocchio, the new production in progress

Pinocchio, a mischievous, disobedient puppet, is the story selected by La Baldufa as its new production opening at the very end of 2014.

Aspects such as the worthiness of education, the father-son relationship, the path of initiation, children’s naivety, or values like generosity, responsibility or forgiveness are some of the reasons why this well-known work in the world of theatre and cinema has been chosen.

At the present moment, the company is working on the dramaturgy of the show via rehearsal and research with different materials. A constant process of creation is helping the show come together slowly but surely.
There are two different premises behind this creation – little dialogue and the simplicity and versatility of the materials. Therefore, the scenery will mean going back to basics, to that of a show using things made by hand out of organic materials which will keep evolving and growing out of the shadows, projections and inventiveness.

The company is now searching for co-producers and collaborators to accompany us on our process of creation and during the show.

We will keep you updated about the different paths we take, as well as the possible dates of the pre-opening and opening events.
