On May 13, the play "Mare de sucre" premieres at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya , a show with an inclusive cast, written and directed by Clàudia Cedó , and which tells the story of a girl with a disability who wants to be a mother and he must confront the misunderstanding of his community.
The play, which is a production of the TNC and Escenaris Especiales , features three actresses from the Ramon Noguera Foundation: Andrea Álvarez, Mercè Méndez and Judith Pardàs . The rest of the cast are Marc Buxaderas, Ivan Bonet, Maria Rodríguez and Teresa Urroz. It opens on May 13 in the Tallers room of the TNC and the functions will last until May 30. We recommend that you purchase your ticket now if you do not already have one. In this link you will find more information and how to buy them:
The show aims to be a reflection on the treatment we are giving as a society to people with functional diversity . The assimilation of the jurisdiction of their bodies, overprotection as an excuse for the snatching of their freedom of decision.
It is a project that has been working since 2019 and finally the time has come to see the fruits of all the work that the whole team of "Mare de Sucre" has done. It should be borne in mind that the creation process has been adapted to the specific needs of each of the actors and actresses. Intensive trials were conducted in October and January. And also now, a month before the play, the team has been rehearsing directly at the TNC.
Despite the difficulties we have had with COVID and some moments of uncertainty experienced, the project has finally been able to go ahead. As a foundation we are very happy and grateful that Escenarios Especiales has had Andrea, Judith and Mercè live this experience and make them visible.
About Special Scenarios
Escenarios Especiales is a project that makes theater with people at risk of social exclusion. We want the stage to reflect the diversity that exists in our society. Special Stage actors and actresses are people with a disability, mental illness, autism spectrum disorder, adults who are overcoming drug addiction, and children with neuromotor deficiencies.
Andrea, Judith and Mercè have been doing theater with Escenaris Especiales for a few years now, an activity included in the Ramon Noguera Foundation's Leisure and Sport Program.
