Mercè Saumell

We are delighted that Mercè Saumell will be another participant in our Performing Monstrosity symposium; Mercè is the Head of Cultural Services at the Institut de Teatre in Barcelona. Originally starting as a practitioner, Mercè is an internationally-respected theatre critic and academic, and has made significant contributions to monographs of various Catalan performance groups such as Els Joglars, La Cubana and La Fura dels Baus, in addition to giving papers all over Spain and abroad on the theme of contemporary theatre. Her familiarity with Barcelona performance practices and interest in sociological phenomena make Mercè an undoubtedly fascinating addition to our symposium.
