Sâlmon< Festival

Festival of European independent artists under the umbrella of 22 dance houses< Also participating local artists who have developed residences at Graner<<

SÂLMON< offers a two-week programme which presents artists who have participated in the modul-dance project led by the Mercat de les Flors, artists who have completed the various modules in the project, such as research, residencies and production in different member states. Graner helps to coordinate modul-dance by offering artistic residencies and “cartes blanches”; these are small-scale work opportunities on an international level offered to Catalan and Spanish artists so that they can establish links with other creative spaces and create artistic synergies.

Those artists who have completed a residency at Graner and have been selected by the festival curators also take part in SÂLMON<.

SÂLMON< is conceived as an event for presentations, meetings and discovery to be shared by the audience, artists and anyone interested in seeing different approaches to movement and dance, a new event in the city, a stable annual festival that allows the audience to view and accompany the artists’ work within a participatory European framework.
