More than a workshop, Migrar is a journey that Kamchàtka offers all those who wish to discover the city which they have arrived in, or which they have never left, with a new viewpoint, free of prejudice, with a child’s curiosity, dealing with the theme of immigration. It is a collective experience where theatre is conceived as a social ritual meant for discovering and reinventing oneself, of re-encountering ones own story, similar to the dynamics in our ever-changing society.
Migrar offers an opportunity of working with a collective, sharing living experiences and feeling as an immigrant through games. During several days company members and participants will immerse themselves into exploring reality around them with all its complexity, cruelty and beauty through theatrical techniques, games and well-known codes.
Migrar starts as an individual experience that turns out into a collective one.
Prior knowledge of street theatre is not required; instead, keenness for wanting to interact with a group and for letting yourself be carried away towards new ways of communication is sufficient.
Kamchàtka is an artist collective of diverse nationalities and disciplines who’s members first met in Barcelona in 2006. Driven by the same interests and concerns and under the artistic direction of Adrian Schvarzstein, they started training intensely in group improvisation on the streets of Barcelona and researched the subject of immigration. Barcelona… an ideal city for confronting a society laden with contradictions and immersed in profound problems of integration.
Since 2007, they have created their own poetic language around a trilogy on human migration - Kamchàtka (2007), Habitaculum (2010) and Fugit (2014) and have been performing in more than 30 different countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Their latest creation Alter (2021) is a site specific performance which is intimately linked to the landscape and to interaction with the audience.
In 2023 and 2024 Kamchàtka is working on two special site specific projects which take place in the South of France.
The company also offers the Migrar workshop, a unique human experience around the Kamchàtka performance, for the inhabitants of your city, as well as an indoor production with a Symphony Orchestra of your choice - Music for wild beasts - an approach to classical music for all audiences.
