Rally BCN – Sitges 2019 BARCELONA

February 25, 2019

The Barcelona-Sitges International Vintage Car Rally has already completed the main details of its 61st edition, which will take place from March 16th to 18th, 2019.

rallyOn the occasion of the celebration of 100 years of Citroën has been chosen a Type A, first car manufactured by the signature of the two chevrons, as inspiration for the design of the official poster of the test. A perfectly restored unit of this model can be seen in the car exhibition of C.C. L’illa Diagonal (from February 25th to March 16th) and will be responsible for opening the Rally this year.

On Saturday 16, the technical verifications will take place, prior to the Rally the following day. The participants will be concentrated in the Plaza de Sant Jaume in Barcelona on Sunday, March 17 in the morning and will leave in the direction of Sitges at 10:30am.

The first edition of the Rally was held on February 8, 1959, with a score of vintage cars that left from the Plaza Sant Jaume surrounded by a large crowd of visitors.

The caravan already took, at that time, the only road that linked Barcelona with Sitges, the well-known ‘Carretera de las Costas’ of Garraf. From the beginning, the organization made it a condition that the participants were dressed according to the time of manufacture of their vehicle. The reason for this condition is that the Rally was part of the Sitges Winter Festival; Carnival was also held at that time favored that this premise was accepted with enthusiasm.

In the beginning, the Rally was proposed as a regular sporting event, in which the vehicles had to maintain the same speed of descent of the Coasts as of ascent. This “sportsmanship” was regulated under the regulations of the FIA.

When arriving at Sitges, the caravan of cars paraded by the walk of the promenade until arriving at the “Fragata” where, in the same way as it is done at present, they were received by the authorities and later they parked so that the pubic one could admire them. The good general reception encouraged the organizers to repeat the event in the following years, during which they finished giving shape to the Rally as we know it today.

UNBOUNDED DANCE

February 5, 2019

We live in such a strange age, caught up in accelerated times and a multiplied space that no longer seems human, saturated with images, events, and data: our hyperactive senses cannot cope with so much information. Dance must prevail; we need the body, a human here and now, natural high technology to cope with a reality that threatens to overwhelm us.

This year the dance presents unbounded, going beyond bodies, formats, disciplines, spaces, times, audiences and ideas. And in this breaking of boundaries and breaking of new ground, in this overflow, it blurs its limits by creating and making visible unexpected territories, undisciplined voices, surprising dialogues and indeterminate frameworks that are not easily catalogued, showing the infinite possibilities that creation has of capturing and transforming reality, inventing futures, sensing paths, projecting desires.

In February there are several options of the shows to see:

  • February 21 to 24th Batsheva Dance Company, Sala Mac, 8pm

In Venezuela Naharin and the dancers explore dialogue as well as conflict between movement and the content it represents. Many questions and a few answers arise about the choices the choreographer has. Naharin attempts to include the audience in this freedom of choice along with its endless scope of possibilities, while making a critical comment about all of us. “Venezuela, with its wonderful dancers, is a fascinating and multifaceted piece that contains a surprise that remains with the viewer long after leaving the theater“. (Yael Efrati, Timeout, May 2017)

  • February 16 and 17th, Christian Rizzo / Ici –Cnn Montpellier, Sala Mac, 6pm

rizzoThis tale captures the evolution of three creatures, and sees dance and objects converse with light and sound while a dreamy space unfolds where each of the three protagonists invites the other two into their own particular world. After working with various choreographers, Christian Rizzo founded his company L’association fragile in 1996; to date he’s created over 30 pieces with it. In 2015, he was named director of the Centre Chorégraphique National Montpellier.

  • February 23 and 24th GN / MC / Guy Nader / Maria Campos, Sala PB, 23rd 6pm, 24th

tarannaTarannà is a solo work around the concept of “transformation” through the object, space and body. The yellowish jute fabric resembles silk cocoon which holds one of the most dramatic moments of metamorphosis. The transformation is seen as a drastic but subtle process, leading from one state into another and it is throughout this process of reorganization and deformation that culminates in the formation of the imago. It’s a game and a series of images where you are invited to follow the thread of magic and let go your imagination.
