Objects & Desires is a narrative inquiry into the objects and people that cross the border between Morocco and Europe, and into the desires they harbour. In keeping with the poetic methodology of the adventurers of old, the Catalan-German artist Christina Schultz will present the results of her research and of her residency at Le 18.
NOTES ON A NOVEL (THAT I AM NOT GOING TO WRITE) OR THE SWIMMING POOL, OR THE HAIR, THE HERB AND THE BREAD, OR THE TOMATO PLANT is Irene Solà's project for Barcelona Producció for digital environments.
NOTES ON A NOVEL is a project about seeds that never grow, or about planting an apple tree but growing a tomato plant. It is the preparation for a novel that no one any longer intends to write. It is a novel that was never written and everything it could have been. It is a project about writing in the digital era, as the notes for this novel are going to be written online in a public folder on Google Drive. It is a meta-novel made up of all the plots, snippets and fragments, dialogues, notes and ides, and discarded material that were never braided. And it is also a swimming pool full of thoughts, books, articles, conversations, questions, discoveries, investigations, anecdotes and stories.

Lúa Coderch works with stories as if they were objects, investigating the practices of storytelling, which have been the privileged way of transmitting vital stories since the dawn of time. Stories and verbal images that are offered to those who listen and which produce moments of ghostly visuality. Some are their own, others have been received as a gift, now interpreted by a different memory and a different voice.
With A return trip Lúa Coderch invites us to make a brief trip together in a golondrina, the old recreational boats of the port. A while in the sun, if it shines, accompanied by a few stories and some silences. The route intertwines with the voice while we keep our eyes on the landscape or focus on something, some scene. It is a lost period of time, since we left the dock until we return, with the excuse of seeing the city from a distance, from another perspective, as if we were leaving, except that our trip, just like the migratory birds, is one way and return.

Since 2015, Aimar Pérez Galí has been investigating the impact of the AIDS epidemic in the context of Spanish and Latin American dance and relating it to the parallel expansion of contact improvisation, a dance practice in which the movements are improvised from the physical contact between two or more bodies. AIDS and contact bring down the immunological barrier fell and invite us to live with the unknown.
The Touching Community is an intimate and affective work which engages with the particular and local but at the same time gives visibility to an era and a community; a work on touch and contact as a tool for survival and on the transmission routes in the movement of memory. In appropriating this improvised heritage Aimar makes us think about the past from the physical and emotional present, lived and shared, of the body and of the voice.
