UAB Barcelona Summer School students visit Canet de Mar Festival with Comediants
On 30 June, students of the course in Urban Performing Arts, included in the UAB Barcelona Summer School and offered by the Comediants theatre company, participated in the Canet de Mar Festival's "Magical Night" and discovered the creation process of a typical Mediterranean festival.
The Urban Performing Arts course is part of this year's UAB Barcelona Summer School, and is being offered by Jaume Bernadet Munné and Rita Kuan (Jin Hua), members of the Comediants theatre company. This three week course covers different aspects of artistic creation and street art. It is essentially a practical course aimed at international university students and offered 100% in English.
The course also offers a focus on research, in which students travel to and study local traditional festivals held around Catalonia. This past week, students visited the XII Nit Màgica of Canet de Mar's Sant Pere i Sant Pau Festival. Students participated in traditional festival events such as the Pujada del Bestiari, Il·luminació de la Riera and the Baixada del Bestiari de Foc accompanied by the Comediants theatre company and festival organisers.
Complementary to the academic programme, the Canet de Mar Town Council offered the international group a private tour to the Castle of Saint Florentina of medieval, modernist and neo-Gothic elements; one of the scenarios of last season's Game of Thrones series. They also had a chance to visit the Casa Museu and Atelier of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the most important architects of Catalan Modernism.
Registration is now open for the second summer school period.
You can still sign up for the second period of the UAB Barcelona Summer School, which takes place from 16 July to 3 August.
