MARIA LA CULPA

Our company was born in Barcelona in 2012 with the desire to bet on a different creation, critical and audacious. Our theatrical line wishes to question stereotyped models in gender relations. We believe that the theater is an excellent platform to expose and critically portray patriarchy and relations of domination. We are in a continuous search to develop our own language and a unique aesthetic. We decided from the beginning to take inspiration from the telenovelas of the 80’s. In this proposal we created two shows: “Boca de Perlas” and “Santa Culpa” with which we have been on billboard in the city of Barcelona and participated in several Festivales such as Fitaelx international, Fitag, Estrena-t, among others.

In 2016 we decided to bet on a visual and symbolic theater:

“Princesses”

  • The avant premiere was on April 7, 2017 in the framework of the cycle “ESTRENATE”, organized by CICUS, the University of Sevilla.
  • The official premiere was on December 1, 2017 in the framework of “Cotxeres a Escena”, organized by the City Council of Barcelona.
