An acid portrait of Catalan bourgeoisie

Cadaqués, Sitges and Caldetes. Several holidaymakers are enjoying their time in similar situations but in very different historical periods: in July 1968, on 17 July 1936 and on 30 July 1909. Through this journey over time, the show becomes a mirror of the immobility and impenetrability of the Catalan bourgeoisie.


When in an interview on television Montserrat Roig asked Maria Aurèlia Capmany about the portrayal of the Catalan bourgeoisie in her work, she answered:
The Catalan bourgeoisie is very easy to fictionalise, but it does not resemble the English. Because it is unstable, insecure, very changing […], it is short, it ends, destroys itself, it is dying and restless and this, of course, turns it into an enormously attractive collective character.
We take "Vent de Garbí i una mica de por" text as a starting point to continue observing the patterns of bourgeois behaviour, the eternal immobilism of the wealthy classes and to explore the feeling of being outcasts that Capmany raises. We feel class consciousness deep inside, but why is it so hard to talk about it?
