Buy tickets


Recommended age: from 8 years old

In small houses, boys and girls will discover different life stories through play and objects. This work tackles many current issues, such as the lack of housing security, grandmothers living alone or extraordinary incidents in haunted houses, through four experiences.

As a complementary activity to this piece, there will be an installation in the foyer with which we will be able to build, discuss and inhabit the city and our own homes.

Xesca Salvà has been working as a set designer, designing spaces, characters and light designs since 2010 for theatre, dance and circus projects with companies such as Leandre, La Ruta 40, Lali Ayguadé and Manu Rodríguez and on various productions. She also creates her own set pieces such as Cases (2017, TNT Festival; 2019, Festival Grec) or Understory, a project about life in the margins co-produced by the TNT Festival and Schaubude in Berlin. She has been an artist in-residence at the Festival IF Barcelona (2016-17), and Schaubude in Berlin.
