cellar & secrets BEYOND REASON, choreography by Jordi Cortés with the DIN A 13 tanzcompany under the direction of Gerda König. 2020 marks the 45th anniversary of the end of the Francoist dictatorship in Spain and the 75th anniversary of the end of the National Socialist dictatorship in Germany. In cooperation with her Spanish colleague Jordi Cortés Molina and video artist Jürgen Salzmann, choreographer Gerda König refers to the traumas of their two nations, which, in a very concrete sense, arose in camps and prisons strictly hidden away, the “cellars of society”.

After more than twenty years of history, the Barcelona public theatre of the Mercat de les Flors has entered a new period that will lead to it becoming the Consorci Mercat de les Flors/ Dance House, in a project jointly integrated to equal parts by Barcelona City Council and the Government of Catalonia with the collaboration of the Ministry of Culture. The goal of the project is to make the Mercat a reference point for all those artistic disciplines related to movement, principally dance but also visual and gestural theatre, circus, and so on. **The current director is Àngels Margarit.** **Photo © Pau Fabregat**
