La Baldufa, PREMIO NACIONAL 2020

The company LA BALDUFA

We understand theater as a commitment to society, and therefore, we create shows that can challenge the public in one way or another. We believe that theater, like culture, must serve to make us more empathetic, critical, and humane people. When creating, we mix this social commitment with our own visual world: "the Baldufa aesthetic", which we put at the service of the dramaturgy.

Clown and gestural theater are the styles in which we feel most comfortable, but we also like to make artistic crossbreeding and mix different disciplines. Our creative process is long and global. We cook the shows over a slow fire, and in the production process, we try to do residencies and stays in theaters to immerse ourselves fully in the creation and generate links with the territory that welcomes us. All this, always surrounded by a first-class team, both managerial and artistic, which makes us grow day by day as a company.

Undoubtedly, we are militants of theater for all audiences, and we firmly believe in the value of children in society. It is during childhood that the artistic and cultural concept of people is formed, and that is why the creation aimed at children and families must be of quality, rigorous and contemporary, at the same level as that aimed at adults. For this reason, and because we also think it is important to defend cultural rights, we are members of the associations CIATRE, TTP and ASSITEJ.

In 2020 we have the immense honor of receiving the Premio Nacional de Artes Escénicas para la Infancia y la Juventud 2020, granted by the Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte del Gobierno de España. It is a prize for the company's trajectory,
which highlights: 'the audience conception of being capable, critical and reflective regardless of their age' and the ability to create universes 'of a great richness in visual poetry'.

During these years we have been able to perform in many national stages and festivals, such as the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, La Fira del Teatre al Carrer de Tàrrega, the Festival Grec de Barcelona or la Fira de Titelles de Lleida, as well as in many European and international festivals. We have also performed several international creative residencies and we have been present in most of the Catalan and Spanish theatrical circuits and networks.

Since July 2008, we have been organizing the Esbaiola't Festival in Les Valls d'Àneu, a performing arts festival for all audiences in the Catalan Pyrenees. The aim of the festival is to offer quality culture for children and families in general. For this reason, we seek that the shows shown have a high artistic quality and are not very common products in the circuits and programs of the regions of the High Pyrenees.

As a result of the social concern that drives us, for years we have been carrying out small social and cultural actions in our neighborhood, in the city of Lleida, an area with a high rate of migrants, poverty and social exclusion. Since 2022 we have also been holding the Enre9 Festival, with the aim of empower and energize the area and its inhabitants.

The Companyia de Comediants La Baldufa was created in Lleida, in 1996. The creative members of La Baldufa are Carles Pijuan, Enric Blasi and Emiliano Pardo. For over 25 years we have been committed to creating high quality artistic, multidisciplinary performing arts shows, aimed at all audiences, but mainly at family audiences, and with an important social background.

AWARDS
