Ciutat dormitori is a site-specific performance that explores the local cemetery to help us gain a better understanding of the idiosyncrasies of the city and the nature of its inhabitants. The voices of a choir will join us on this guided tour. Cemetery workers will tell us their story and enlighten us about the site. Ciutat dormitori invites participants to take a critical and collective walk, and to reflect on the urban and social dynamics at play in a place like this, on the public policies surrounding death and its management, and on the relationship between work and the demise of the universe.


Contenidos Superfluos is a performing arts creation platform set up in Barcelona in 2019. Led by the director and playwright Pau Masaló, the platform emerged from the desire to launch creative projects that relate customary representation processes and codes of contemporary theatre with the presence and experience of people not necessarily linked to this artistic discipline. Contenidos Superfluos has premiered a theatre show (The National Body) and a street show (Ciutat dormitori). The latter piece was awarded the 24th Performing Arts Critics’ Award for Best Street Arts Show and the El Temps de les Arts Performing Arts Award.
