PSIRC IN RESiDENCE at the School Martí Pous


Wanja Kahlert (Anlès, 1994) and Anna Pascual (Barcelona, 1983) are part of the company PSIRC (Barcelona, 2011), which is a contemporary circus company that since its beginnings has been exploring new ways of making circus today.

Starting with an aesthetic and technical exploration of the acrobatic body, research has led the company to look at other factors that influence the dramaturgy such as the composition of the space, the lighting and the musicality. This has led us not only to put the body on stage, but also to take part in creative projects from other roles, such as directing, lighting, dramaturgy and scenography.

Thus, we try to identify our own language, without losing sight of our inevitable inscription in a historical, social and scenic context, and to understand how, from our particular vision, we can contribute to the collective evolution/re-definition of the performing arts.

This is Martí Pous' fifth participation in EN RESiDÈNCiA. In previous editions it has hosted the creative processes of Cristina Checa (2018-2019), Jorge Albuerne (2020-2021), Cristina Celada (2021-2022) and Gatillo Culón (2022-2023). Again, a group of third year ESO students will be involved.


The Institut Martí Pous was created in 2017 and forms part of the set of cultural and educational facilities located at the Fabra i Coats complex. The neighbourhood with the Fàbrica de Creació, the Art Centre, the Ateneu L'Harmonia, the Biblioteca Ignasi Iglésias - Can Fabra, the Taller de Músics and the CRAB - Centre de Recursos Artístics de Barcelona, among others, helps to enhance the importance of this institute as a cultural production centre, together with the Escola Bressol La Filadora, Escola Can Fabra and the Institut Vapor del Fil.
