A play by Llàtzer Garcia in dialogue with the youths of one of the Girona neighbourhoods most affected by inequality

The name of the neighbourhood of Font de la Pólvora comes from the fact of being at the foot of an old powder magazine and because the water of the spring has always had a slightly spicy taste. It is located past the cemetery up on the hill. This neighbourhood never appears on any postcard of Girona, only on the news, from time to time.

In the 1970s, an isolated housing estate was built to accommodate many of the most disadvantaged migrants. It soon had to bear the stigma of crime and drug trafficking. With the economic crisis everything got worse, and the neighbourhood has become more distanced from the city.

What future (or present) awaits the youths of Font de la Pólvora?
