The new Experiències Casa Navàs Festival bets on the artistic talent of the territory

  • Experiències Casa Navàs has programmed magic, music, dance, theater, and a multidisciplinary performance for June 7th.


The Casa Navàs in Reus launches the Experiències Casa Navàs Festival, a new way to get to know the interior of the modernist building and spaces that are not usually shown to the public, and, at the same time, to discover four artistic pieces created by professionals from different disciplines from the territory. So, while the public visits Casa Navàs, in different rooms they will meet artists such as magician Jordi Caps, musician Silvio Álvarez and dancer Ovidi Álvarez, actresses Marina Buisan and Nataniel Sánchez, musician Toni Just,  actress and dancer Aïda Pitarch, and plastic artist Guillem Duran. The first edition of the festival will take place on Friday, June 7, and four shows will be offered between 19:30 and 21:00.

Since its opening in 2018, Casa Navàs has always gone hand in hand with its closest cultural network and has opened its doors to all sorts of initiatives. So far, it has programmed theatrical actions, concerts of various genres, dance, book presentations, lecture series, photographic visits, and tastings… and has collaborated with other events such as the Accents Festival by hosting some of its performances. Now, Casa Navàs goes a step further and creates its festival intending to project the talent of artists from Reus and its surroundings.

Thanks to Festival Experiències Casa Navàs, the audience will visit the interior of the house, through an unprecedented tour that will show spaces that are not usually shown, for example, the basement of the building or the bomb room on the second floor.  Throughout the tour, the visitor will find four 20-minute scenic pills created by professionals of the territory, which will include music and dance, magic, theater, and a performance that will combine a dramatized reading with music and plastic arts.   


Discover Casa Navàs through different performing arts.


Festival Experiències Casa Navàs has programmed four shows of different disciplines so that the public can enjoy first-hand artistic experiences quite varied among them and get to know the house in a more enriching way, in this case from the performing arts. The new festival is born under the precept that art creates art.  So much so that of the four shows programmed, two new creations have been inspired by the house itself, one of which has been produced by Casa Navàs.

One of these shows, “Consemblant”, has been created expressly by the young artists Silvio and Ovidi Álvarez from the inspiration that the space where it will be shown, the store of Casa Navàs, has generated. Once again, they have joined forces to create a show that combines contemporary dance with music, and that deals with the symbiosis with technology.

On the other hand, Casa Navàs has decided to produce the performance “Reus en guerra” based on texts selected by the journalist David Fernàndez from the book “Viure sota les bombes. Els bombardeigs a Reus 1937-1939” by Ezequiel Gort and Salvador Palomar, and the conference “La Guerra Civil en la memòria personal” by Ezequiel Gort. This performance mixes the live music of the guitarist Toni Just, the painting of the plastic artist Guillem Duran, and the reading of texts played by actress Aïda Pitarch. The show will be performed in the basement of the house, a space that connects with the air raid shelter in the Plaza del Mercadal. 

Another of the planned productions will be performed by Jordi Caps, one of the most renowned magicians and mentalists in Catalonia, who in 2022 was proclaimed the first and only magician to win the television program Got Talent.  With “A propíssim” (“Very close”), Caps has prepared a show that will include card magic, mentalism, and, for the occasion, also modernist touches.

Finally, the company Les Candidates will present the micro-theater play “Interrail”, performed by the actresses Marina Buisan and Nataniel Sánchez.  “Interrail” is a short play, a realistic, agile comedy with a tragic and sincere undertone, which aims to give voice to everyday situations in which women can see themselves reflected and where men can reflect on their gender privileges.

Tickets for the Festival Experiències Casa Navàs cost 23€ and will allow you to tour the interior of the Casa Navàs accompanied by a guide, and enjoy the different shows scheduled during the two hours that the show lasts. The members of the Club Casa Navàs will have a preference to book their tickets, they can do it from today until May 13 by sending an email to [email protected].
