Més Petit de Tots children's festival prepares for fun in 11 Catalan cities
Annual performing arts event will offer 122 shows for the under-fives around the country from November 10 to 25
Small children in Catalonia have a real treat coming up, with the 14th edition of El Més Petit de Tots festival, which this month offers 122 different shows for kids under five.
Running from November 10 to 25, the children's festival will take place in 11 venues around Catalonia, and features a broad range of performing artists from both home and abroad.
Among the foreign acts are the likes of the Belgian productions 'Cache Cache' by Théâtre de la Guimbarde, and 'Niet drummen!' by Theater De Spiegel, with the Norwegian musical 'Lulla', and 'The Garden of spirited minds' from Finland, aimed at disabled children.
The festival program also includes homegrown productions, such as 'Hits' by Pistatxo Produccions, or 'Jungle', an exciting journey from the Companyia Big Bouncers, which is a coproduction between the festival and Barcelona's Mercat de les Flors theater.
A combination of artistic disciplines
Once again El Més Petit de Tots festival has booked fun and highly original acts that can be hard to find elsewhere. What's more, the shows in the program tend to combine different artistic disciplines, such as music, dance, theatre, circus and audiovisuals.
"We are proud that an idea born in Sabadell has been exported to 11 Catalan cities, among them Barcelona," said the festival's director, Eulàlia Ribera.
Forum for theater professionals
In fact, Sabadell, 20 km outside of Barcelona, will again host the festival's professional forum, from November 16 to 18. Under the title Crossing Borders, the event will bring together some 60 domestic and foreign professionals from the performing arts sector to debate children's theater and share their experiences.
Other highlights of the festival include 'Tre ben' by the Danish Aaben Dans company, the performance 'Wax' by France's TJP Centre Dramatique National d'Alsace, as well as the local productions 'Loo' by Ponten Pie and the interactive show 'Little night'.
