This project developed by Mercat de les Flors between 2018 and 2023 places the artist at the heart of the project, a positioning that is essential for improving the quality of the creations and enabling artists’ professional growth.

CÈL·LULA_PRO aims to facilitate and produce medium to large-scale creations, addressing the challenge faced by small, private production works in supporting pieces of this scale.

CÈL·LULA_PRO provides increased resources and improved working conditions for productive and creative processes.

It invites choreographers to develop a project, with Mercat de les Flors taking charge of the production and offering support to the artists throughout the creative process.

The CÈL·LULA project, which has run over the last few seasons, has generated large formats and provided local talent with opportunities for growth.

CÈL·LULA productions have taken various forms, such as own productions, international and national co-productions, depending on the needs of the artists and creations and the partnerships that have arisen.


In Supermedium, the dancers are the medium through which dances from different times and spaces are channelled, thus becoming a conduit that connects past, present and future time. Through actions of invocation, possession and exorcism of movements, the performance becomes a speculative fiction about the corporeal knowledges and histories that pass through us and are transmitted to other bodies.

In this new work for CÈL·LULA 4, Núria Guiu is accompanied by the Norwegian choreographer Ingri FiksdalSupermedium is a large-format version inspired by Medium, a solo piece created by the two choreographers in 2022 and which opened the 2023-24 season. In the history of dance up to the present day, there have been different approaches to the incarnation of that which is virtual or invisible. Witches and mediums have always been women associated with the fringes of society and with superpowers.

The piece explores the metaphor of the ghost, stage creation and presentation as a ritual, and the body as a channel and archive that invokes other bodies. Supermedium is also a metaphor for today’s “Super Ballerina”, a person who lives on the threshold of what is a precarious job and a valued, remunerated job with the rights of any other worker. In this creation, nine female dancers will channel movements and dances that invoke a singularity crossed by a common past and present. An exorcism that burns, expels and invites to rebirth the dance, the ballerina and the live arts of the future.

GN | MC. GUY NADER | MARIA CAMPOS offered two open rehearsals (October 2020 and May 2021) as part of Mercat de les Flors’ regular programming for the 2020-2021 season, which enabled them to complete the process of creating their new piece and have initial contact with the public. Made of Space is a co-production of Mercat de les Flors and the Grec Festival, which premièred on 1 July 2021, as part of the Grec Festival in Barcelona. Based in Barcelona and with international experience, the company explores movement and the visual and sonic landscape and addresses the dimension of time and space. Its new creation was presented at Mercat de les Flors on the 16th and 17th and from the 22nd to the 24th October 2021.

This new piece is the final part of a trilogy by GN|MC, that began with the quintet Time Takes The Time Time Takes (2015) and continued with the septet Set Of Sets (2018), pieces that explored the concept of time and infinity. Now, the company, formed by Guy Nader and Maria Campos, continues to address concepts of physics and brings to the stage a piece based on this fascination for the communicative capacity, inherent in movement, in its relationship with the notion of spacetime as a source of inspiration.

Pere Faura used the LABS to kick-start his most recent creation: Rèquiem Nocturn. The project revolves around the figure of choreographer and film director Bob Fosse, both on a physical and conceptual level, exploring his legacy in its artistic, professional, and personal dimensions.

Fosse’s physical and poetic universe is explored as a starting point and inspiration to create new performance material in which his influence resonates, but at the same time is transcended. The show does not aim to be a mere activation of Fosse’s legacy or an academic exercise in presenting his choreographic archive. The objective is to re-visit and re-interpret his choreographic work, especially the dances created specifically for the camera. Meanwhile, it also takes inspiration from other textual or visual materials in his films, which reflect on the idea of life and death.

The piece takes the form of a Requiem, with music, dance and words, composed of original and personal performance material created together with the dancers, based on the Fosse universe and their own personal contributions.

The creation of the show begins with a simple exercise of imagination in the form of a question: “What would Bob Fosse’s work be like if he lived today?” The show, therefore, develops a personal and updated vision of Fosse’s universe, through a dramaturgical structure that functions as a set of mirrors between some of his most iconic choreographies and their possible reflection in today’s society.

Flamingos is Albert Quesada‘s latest immersion into the world of flamenco, following his last piece, OneTwoThreeOneTwo (2015), a duet in which he explores this art from an intimate and moving perspective. Within the framework of CÈL·LULA_PRO he offers a larger-scale work with 8 dancers, in which the choreographer is able once again to submerge himself in the complexity of flamenco, its music and dance, fascinated as he is by its magnetism and structural purity. The choreographer aims to discover the driving force behind flamenco and transfer it to other bodies and other music in order to generate new meanings. All in all, kindling the little spark that each of us nurtures within, until it finally becomes a great fire.

Flamingos aims to explore the transmission of flamenco and go beyond the stereotypes that identify it, through the perspective of contemporary dancers and choreographers, free from prejudices. It is the result of placing Carmen Amaya in the middle of a scene by John Waters. Flamenco’s impulse to share the depths of the human soul is mixed with pop imagery, costumes and music.
