The Antic Teatre has been central to the independent performing arts scene in the city for fifteen years. This is also how long it has been fostering and promoting risk and innovation in the quest for, and development of, new multidisciplinary performing arts and supporting artists, old and new, to move away from traditional methodologies based on role-learned techniques and repetition. And it succeeds in fulfilling it mission from an independent, non-complacent standpoint, from the centre of Barcelona and as a meeting place, of opening and exchange for locals, public and artists alike.
