MUTEK is pleased to announce the first in what will be recurrent events in partnership with the government of Girona. As the second largest city in Catalunya, it’s an emerging festival city with a concentration of university students and energy, and a renowned foodie scene among many other charms. MUTEK.ES is honoured to present a free series of activities on February 27 at the Auditori de la Mercé — a week before the official kickoff of MUTEK in Barcelona.
Excited to show off what has been achieved in Barcelona, and introduce audiences in Girona to the experience of the festival, proceedings begin at 3PM. A presentation on the history and ethos of the festival will be followed by a reception and cocktail, then a lecture by Fernando Corona discussing his work as MURCOF, topped off with a PLAY program featuring: a live audiovisual performance by MURCOF & MANU ROS as LIFE OBSERVING LIFE with their cinematographical exploration of Mount Etna, and from MUTEK.ES associated artist MICROFEEL, a new A/V work showcasing his latest release and his enveloping real-time visual environment.
PLAY is always the MUTEK program that invites audiences to encounter new and experimental works. The festival would especially like to thank the Government of Girona, Estrella Damm, Burn, Coca-Cola, Escola Universitária Eram, Eumes Institut, IR and Electrona for making this event possible.
