PLAÇA CATALUNYA: A MAGICAL CITY
From 20 to 31 December, the heart of the city is transformed into an oasis of light and creativity: a forest, giant rabbits, Christmas carols, stories, sports and games.
A magical city where you will find free activities for all ages and where you will be able to enjoy the festivities without promoting their more consumeristic aspects.
Around sixty entities and projects linked to responsible consumption and the social and solidarity economy present their services and products and a wide range of activities.
Shhh. . . At dusk the magic arrives at Plaça Catalunya. It’s time for the forest and its creatures. Hold your ear and you’ll be able to hear them. It darkens and a sound show created from music, voice and sound effects will evoke life in the forest.
Enter the square and listen to streams and waterfalls, the wind, the rain, the trees that shake branches and leaves, the singing of birds, the howling of animals . . . An entire soundscape that invites you to walk and pay attention, to contemplate the spectacle of light and color of the water sources. The magic of Christmas in all its fullness ( Shhh. . . ) The forest breathes, it’s alive. We have to take care of the forest and the forest will take care of us.
Els Nadalòvitx, a quartet of very international musicians, offers us small Christmas concerts and invites us to participate. Els Nadalòvitx son políglotas (Poliqué?), that is, they know how to speak in many different languages, and that is why they interpret Christmas carols from all over the world in the original language. We will learn to sing and count in different languages, so that we can wish Merry Christmas to all our friends wherever they come from, whether from Australia, Romania or Peru. This will happen in the middle of the square, on top of the largest rabbit in the whole family, which is also a stage.
Come and discover many more activities!
