About

The puppets in this performance were originally designed for the theatre piece Mori el Merma, first performed in 1978. The production was a collaboration between the artist Joan Miró and La Claca, an experimental theatre troupe from Barcelona, headed by Joan Baixas. In this new production, Merma Never Dies, Joan Baixas evokes the critical spirit of Mori el Merma and recovers Miró’s original desire to make the piece into a street parade in the Catalonian tradition.
