Poetry and music

Valère Novarina is the creator invited to Barribrossa 2010 – a theologian of words who invites us to perceive the materiality of words and sheds light on the connecting links between verb, visual poetry and music. In this context, the MACBA hosts a series of three dramatised lectures of the work of three Catalan poets who, like Valère Novarina, explore voice and language, as well as a performance of Éloge du Réel by Christian Paccoud, with texts and songs by Novarina.

An initiative of the Espai Escènic Joan Brossa, with collaboration from the MACBA
