Documentación de la exposición "El Misterio de Caviria" de Antoni Hervàs en La Capella

La exposición "El Misterio de Caviria" de Antoni Hervàs dibuja los escenarios para un espectáculo visual estilo copla-terror donde, siguiendo los rastros de la Barcelona canalla de los años 60–80, colisionan dos mitologías: la del cabaret barcelonés y la Grecia clásica. Una invocación a los Dioses del subsuelo siguiendo la tradición del rito cabirio en el que el fuego, la sangre y la ridiculización de lo masculino son los ingredientes esenciales que permiten conocer una historia local que es a la vez universal.

A finales de enero se presentará una publicación conjuntamente editada por The Flames, el Ajuntament de Barcelona y La Capella que incluirá una entrevista entre el artista y Latitudes, tutores del proyecto, así como documentación fotográfica de la exposición y de las actividades programadas. 

La exposición "El misterio de caviria" se puede visitar en La Capella (c/ Hospital 56, 08001 Barcelona) hasta el 13 de noviembre 2016. El proyecto se enmarca dentro de la temporada BCN Producció'16.
