They invite you to their home, you experience a weird visit to the place, they accept you and convey – always without words – the story of their trip, their memories, their hopes and desires, their nostalgia… Perhaps their story is a universal one, perhaps yours is too…
Slowly but surely you start feeling comfortable and let yourself sink into their peculiar universe, their codes and habits. Creating an interactive relationship, these new neighbors stir up a sense of humanity, surprise and simplicity, brought about by another way of living.
A unique experience.
Kamchàtka is an artist collective of diverse nationalities and disciplines who’s members first met in Barcelona in 2006. Driven by the same interests and concerns and under the artistic direction of Adrian Schvarzstein, they started training intensely in group improvisation on the streets of Barcelona and researched the subject of immigration. Barcelona… an ideal city for confronting a society laden with contradictions and immersed in profound problems of integration.
Since 2007, they have created their own poetic language around a trilogy on human migration - Kamchàtka (2007), Habitaculum (2010) and Fugit (2014) and have been performing in 27 different countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Their latest creation Alter (2021) is a site specific performance which is intimately linked to the landscape and to interaction with the audience.
The company also offers the Migrar workshop, a unique human experience around the Kamchàtka performance, for the inhabitants of your city, as well as an indoor production with a Symphony Orchestra of your choice - Music for wild beasts - an approach to classical music for all audiences.
