“Pas a dos” is the name of a joint project by Barkeno School and Mercat de les Flors-Graner.
We take the name from the expression “pas à deux”, i.e. a dance duet: Barkeno School and Mercat de les Flors-Graner formed an educational duet within the Schools in Tandem project (2014-2017).
‘Schools in Tandem’ is a collaboration project between Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and the Education Department of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Mercat de les Flors and Graner form a tandem with Barkeno School, in La Marina Neighbourhood. Schools in Tandem is an innovative educational project in which schools partner with important organisations in order to foster educational success.
The project is based on the fact that the curricula of some centres are specialized on a particular subject (music, science, audiovisual arts…). During three years, the project aims to create a comprehensive and sensitive space in which the language of dance and the arts of movement can be a vehicle and a subject, discovery and experience.
