Roda Fetillera is just another way of saying “meeting of the witches coven.” Secret meetings with the objective of celebrating a ritual, gathered to share the clandestine freedom. Our aim is to maintain this collective spirit, this spirit of freedom and creation. And this is why we want to turn culture, and particularly the theatre, into a place where all the arts meet and interact. With this meeting the audience must become active participants, who get involved in the play. And with this, the play becomes a tool to develop new reflections, actions and creations. That means, to take art beyond the exhibition rooms and turn it into a engine of social change! We will do all this, recovering our roots, the magic of our ancestors’ rituals, and the rituals of those witches who once blazed a pathway.
Cristina Canudas, Maria Capell and Sílvia Pérez are three young artists who are willing to use their energy and imagination to create reflection and communication spaces through arts.
"In theatre I have found my own way of communicating, expressing, shouting… Maybe someone else will find it in politics, sports, education; but I chose this branch of art in which imagination and experience are necessary to create a collective schizophrenia which certainly changes us, provokes us and doesn’t leave us indifferent."
Cristina Canudas (see CV)
"I love words because they are singular, because of their shape and their essence, because they tell us things about the culture in which they are used. In contrast, I love gestures, smiles or tears, because they are universal and visceral and they are an instinctive way of expression and communication. And for me all this is a tool for social and personal transformation. Here anything is possible."
Maria Capell (see CV)
"The constant movement in a neutral body with a free mind, willing to show out loud and shout what makes it alive. This is what I love from dancing, to be able to say without words, knowing that I can express myself with a movement and you can understand me."
