Søren Evinson IN RESiDENCE at the School Montserrathttp://sorenevinson.com/
Søren Evinson (Barcelona, 1980) trained at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona and completed his Masters at the Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London. He lived in London for six years, where he developed his artistic work in collaboration with other artists and exhibited his work at some of the city's non-conventional venues. A Nation Is Born In Me, presented at the Antic Teatre as part of GREC 2019, was the first work he conceived on his own.
Through use of the body, texts and space, Søren Evinson creates situations that speculate with various power structures, studying the speeches until they become inscrutable. He combines choreographic material with spoken word and song, creating wild, direct and provocative pieces for the audience. He combines sound, text, movement and space, making them interact and become living organisms. His work has been presented internationally at dance, theatre and performance festivals, art galleries, abandoned buildings and public squares.

The Montserrat secondary school (Sant Gervasi - Galvany, Sarrià - Sant Gervasi) is taking part in the IN RESiDENCE programme for the first time, with 4th year ESO students.
The Institut Montserrat first opened in 1941, during the post-war period. In 1948, it moved to a building on Carrer de Copèrnic, where the current installations were built, modified and extended on two occasions. The secondary school has maintained the building's garden, a magnificent green area, with a wide variety of plant species, hidden away in a bustling, densely populated area.
