Welcome to the sixth annual Dansa Metropolitana, a festival with a proven model for bringing together municipalities in the Barcelona metropolitan area to take part in a joint cultural project that is all about dance. The programme covers a wide variety of areas, as with any big festival, but there are common, shared themes.

For a start, this year’s festival has a special connection with architecture, a project developed under the title ofLiminar, which allows you to see dance while visiting emblematic buildings.

In architecture and dance, lines are of great importance; lines for blueprinting buildings or lines for working one’s body and space. This year you can also enjoy a programme of first-rate ballets, seeing dance using neo-classical technique, starting with the festival video, which this year includes the participation of IT Dansa, on its 25th anniversary.

We also want you to take a close look at Focus America Llatina, an exceptional opportunity to discover committed, theatrical dance brimming with strong emotions and stories to tell, coming mostly from Chile and Argentina.

The programme is completed with a wide range of movement languages, in shows that are now created closer to home, including a lot of artists of different generations who work in Barcelona, as well as a generous programme of free activities and cinema.

The wide-ranging programme allows you to choose a dance that will surprise you, look for safe bets, discover new talents or enjoy the festival outdoors.
