A concert show for 25 spectators, Corpus is an encounter between a sculptural piece, an object manipulator and a musician. Corpus is also a journey between a man and his shape, an impossible dialogue unravelling the hours of a lifetime, retracing paths, becoming smaller only to disappear again. With the desire that silence and stillness reveal its eloquence.

Passionate about the poetics of objects, Xavier Bobés has been researching all kinds of everyday objects for over twenty years. In 2015 he created a show for five spectators called Cosas que se olvidan fácilmente (Things that are easily forgotten), which was performed at Mercat de les Flors in 2016. The cellist Frances Bartlett has worked with composers, and dance and theatre companies. Founder of the Follia Project group, she is currently part of the following projects: BZM Barcelona, Bachcelona Festival, Bachcelona Consort and Vespres d’Anardí. She has played with the Liceu Academy Orchestra, the Liceu Chamber Orchestra, the London Studio Orchestra, and BIB (Banda d’Improvisadors de Barcelona), amongst others. The sculptor Gerard Mas has exhibited at numerous international fairs and exhibitions.
