Travelling with Carles Fages de Climent
11/03/2018 - blog

The more I deepen in the work of the poet Carles Fages de Climent, the more synchronicities I discover. Lately he made me travel to the forest of my infancy through one of his poems: you can read a little article I wrote about it here (in Catalan). Next Wednesday I propose you a new trip: a storytelling session inspired and accompanied by the poems and landscapes of Carles Fages de Climent. And the Latvian kokle also will join the party, so there will be stories, music, poems… and a mystery to be solved. Wednesday 14th March from 20 to 21h Ballad of the enchanted ...

The Never Ending Tree
02/03/2018 - blog

Some years ago, in a trip to Latvia, a woman told me that when she had visited our land, she was surprised that many people did not know the name of the trees. When she asked: «Which tree is this?», they simply answered: «I don’t know, it’s a tree». In Latvian culture, deeply rooted in nature and seasonal cycles (the first time I travelled there, just after getting off the plane they offered me birch water, to prepare the body for spring arrival), this fact was fairly surprising. The truth is that I had never seen it from this light. I have always ...

Bimbirimboies come in a noisy cellophane bag, like candies. But they are not candies. And they have different colours, but I bet you they have no colouring, no preservatives, no sugar, are gluten-free and lactose-free. No additives as well. You can add them later, if you want. They will come to the neighbourhood of Vilapicina very soon, so be attentive to the cry of «bimbirimboies!» bimbirimboies! – folktales with kamishibai storytelling session in Catalan (Alt Empordà) from 4 years Thursday 8th March at 18h Vilapicina – La Torre Llobeta Library Pl.

Next week I will tell stories with a kamishibai, this new wooden companion that comes along with me from time to time to tell together. And maybe this time we won’t go to Japan, but we may travel to China, or even to a Caribbean island, with our imagination.
