De quan tot filava quan filava

”De Quan Tot Filava quan Filava“ is a physical theatre project telling a story derived from creative and historical research, aiming to stimulate reflection and dialogue with the audience. The set of scenes brings you closer to the world of our past: women in textile colonies in Catalonia. 

The textile colonies were a very important social entity for the region ending in the last century, marking an important shift in the social structure that still affects society today. The colonies offered security, but compromised certain freedoms. “Freedom with exceptions” is the theme of our research material, as we find similarities between then and now, in which the strive for security compromises our freedom. 

During our research, we found that women’s experience in the colonies was flagrant and became our main focus. Although they were the engine of the colonies, there was not equality with men, in regards to their rights and salaries. Children were also exploited through hidden child labour, which occurred just a few decades ago.
