Catalan Party

Catalan Party

This party creates the atmosphere of a Catalan popular celebration by combining the following options:

PASACAGLIA (GIANTS AND BIGHEADED)
A musical group of gralles (popular wind instruments) and drums can guide an outdoors celebration with “capgrossos” (bigheaded masked) and giants (tall wooden human structures).

CASTELLERS (Human constructions)
Human constructions is one of the most spectacular traditions of the catalan folklore. It’s the raise of human castles up to 7, 8 or even 9 levels. The show combines the exhibition with the explanation of the tradition. A similar options are the FALCONS, a troupe of youngsters building special constructions (towers, pyramids…)

WOODSTICK DANCE
We can affirm that the "Ball de Bastons" (woodstick dance) is the oldest traditional dance still being danced. Its first written references are dated in the year 1150, during the marriage of the Comte Berenguer IV. The combination of the dance, its accompaining music and the constant woodden hit sounds make this dance particularly attractive.

SARDANES (COBLA and SARDANIST DANCERS)
The Sardana is the Catalan popular dance more extended and with its unique characteristics has become the most representative. We have a Copla with the most danceable repertoire of the classic sardanas and we can add one “colla” of dancers, dressed in folkloric clothes. Everybody is free to join in to try the basic steps of the dance.

HAVANERES
The Havanera is one of the most representative music styles of the Catalan culture whose characteristic rhythm reminds the waves’ balance and whose words remember the overseas colonies. An Havaneres evening creates an atmosphere of cordiality and the audience often end up singing along with the musicians and their accordion, guitars and bass.

CORREFOC
A Correfoc or Fire Show is a perfect end of the party with the devils throwing sparks and a firecracker.
