The key strategic marketplaces Fira Tarrega, Mostra Igualada, and Trapezi, together with Fira Mediterrania and Sismograf festival will take part in the online version of the International Performing Arts meeting CINARS.

Theatre Company Projecte Ingenu will present its new creation in the Work in progress Pitching session.

From May 25th to the 28th, CINARS will become again one of the most important centers in the world for the Performing Arts community. Measures to fight Covid-19 have transform the event into online gatherings, instead of the celebration that used to take place in Montreal, Quebec, every two years.

CINARS online platform will host the full program of activities, as it did last November 2020, offering to all delegates the chance to participate in round-tables, pitching sessions, online showcases and networking events with international attending professionals. The aim is to encourage collaborations, promote conversations and foster opportunities to share creations ready to tour.

As in previous editions, Catalan Arts, the international brand of the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies (ICEC) will attend the event. On this occasion, with a virtual booth gathering the strategic Catalan marketplaces: FiraTarrega (Street Arts and unconventional spaces), Mostra Igualada (Performing Arts for children’s and youth), Trapezi (Circus), and Fira Mediterrania de Manresa (Traditional and popular culture), as well as Sismograf festival (Dance).

Company Projecte Ingenu has been selected to present, next May 25th in the frame of Pitch Sessions : Working Progress, its new work The day the last panda died, a multidisciplinary show that talks about transhumanism, genetic design, bioethics, AI, etc, in a dystopian world where panda bears are about to extinct.

Also from May 26th to the 28th, a curated selection of international projects will be pitched, in the fields of Dance, Digital Arts, Theatre, Circus and Music (with special focus on Classical music and Francophone artists).

CINARS online platform will have virtual booths, offering the possibility to host meetings thanks to an algorithm that would look for common interests amongst participants, as well as an speed-networking system to promote exchange and connections between professionals.

Since 1984, CINARS organizes every two years in Montreal, one of the most important international Performing Arts conferences in the world, with more than 1500 professionals, representing more than 40 countries, with 360 shows and programming more than 20 official showcases in front of some of the most influential professionals in the business.

In the past two CINARS in Quebec, Catalan Arts, in collaboration with Institut Ramon Llull, has organized missions to encourage and support the assistance of Catalan professionals.
