The playwright Lluïsa Cunillé conjures with the phantoms of El Paral·lel in a great symphony of Barcelona’s nocturnal bohemia

A few months before the Second Republic is proclaimed, Barcelona mourns its most beloved and acclaimed artist: Palmira Picard, "L’Emperadriu del Paral·lel". While Barcelona’s great avenue of leisure is in mourning, the effervescence of the night has summoned all kinds of stage artisans, libertarian thinkers, bohemian writers and other heterodox agitators to La Tranquil·litat bar, who will get drunk to the health and memory of the great woman.

Like a vibrant scenic symphony, and to the rhythm of cuplés, political proclamations and coarse witticisms, Lluïsa Cunillé's L’Emperadriu del Paral·lel conjures up the bustle of 1920s Paral·lel and the frenzy of the early 1930s, which would soon be condemned to swallow down so much bitterness in a single gulp.
