Theater Great Hall
El tocadiscos de Joan Fuster Pau Alabajos / Barnasants
El tocadiscos de Joan Fuster (Joan Fuster’s record player), produced and released in Barnasants 2022, signifies a theatrical show filled up with live music. Built upon a selection of ‘fusterian’ texts which reflect on the ‘Nova Cançó’ (New Song) cultural movement, this work sets a jigsaw puzzle of thoughts, aphorisms, and dissertations that characterizes this fictitious interview. This dramatized conversation is starred by the essayist from Sueca and the young journalist interviewing him; they discuss the role that the ‘Setze Jutges’ played in the fight against Francoism, the importance of the ‘Nova Cançó’ during the democratic transition, and other social, political, and cultural concerns affecting our recent history.
The songs by Raimon, Lluís Llach, Maria del Mar Bonet, Ovidi Montllor or Al Tall which are mentioned throughout the interview form the soundtrack of this show. The songwriter Pau Alabajos interprets live some of the most symbolic hymns from the sixties and seventies, doing homage to Joan Fuster in the centenary of his birth.
