Age guideline – 16+
Barricades is both a Catalan and an English word, that share the exact same meaning.
‘Barricades’ is a play about the fight for identity, freedom of speech and language, despite governmental oppression, police violence and media control.
This is a play about living a revolution in the XXI century, from the impotence of watching on a screen from afar. This is also a play about a fight for democracy carried on through generations.
‘Barricades‘ is a story beyond flags or nationalities, which speaks to a shared humanity that resists oppression. A humanity that understands of no physical or language barriers
