GUIXOT DE 8

Catalonia, Spain

A Catalonian group travels around the world with a van, full of old iron. The old iron turns into a playground on the local squere, which, unlike modern toys and plastic dolls with pre-defined and limited functions, stimulates the actor’s imagination and creativity. The conceptual leader is Joan Rovier, who collects, recycles, creates and puts together old dumped objects and gives them a new form and function. Guixot de 8 and their playground is a trademark of our festival from the very beginning of the year 2001. Many visitors – especially boys and fathers – come to our festival just because of them.
