La mort i la primavera

  • Mercè Rodoreda
  • Adaptation and direction Joan Ollé
  • Sala Petita
  • al

A strange ritual ensures the stability of a village where sexual desires are systematically repressed with all kinds of torture. Every year, the life of a young person is sacrificed there, thrown into the river to check the state of an underground tunnel that runs below. In the violent rigour of this cast-iron order, it seems that any dissidence can cause a cataclysm of unpredictable consequences.

A masterpiece of Catalan fiction, this novel published posthumously is considered the great literary testament of Mercè Rodoreda. A text of great poetic richness and at the same time with a surprisingly sharp perspective on the ancestral violence that underpins contemporary disquiet.

Show included in the season tickets.
