The Audiovisual Documentation Collection reviews the trajectory of artists,
who explain their works in the MACBA Collection.

Premiered at the Sigma Festival in Bordeaux in November 1966, this unusual and transgressive piece is halfway between theatre and musical concert. Conceived by the composer Josep Maria Mestres Quadreny and the poet Joan Brossa, the Suite bufa (1966) was written for Carlos Santos (piano), singer Anna Ricci and ballerina Terri Mestres. Its authors liked to define it as a ‘musical action’. Since then the Suite Bufa has been performed on various occasions, most notably at La Ricarda in 1966, a version by the Ensemble MW2 in Krakow in 1973, the performance by Mireia Chalamanch and Albert Mestres (Sata-Suite Bufa-Na) in 2002, or more recently by Victor Àlvaro in 2005.
