San Javier,” said Councilor for Culture and Director of the San Javier Festival of Theatre, Music and Dance, David Martínez, during his speech.

The Catalan independent theater company was founded in 1962 by Albert Boadella, who led the company until 2012 when he was replaced by Ramon Fontserè.

In the early years, the San Javier Theater Festival hosted the first productions of the Catalan company such as “La Torna” and later such as “Laetius”, “Operación Ubú”, “Teledeum” or “Virtuosos de Fontainebleau”, already in the 80’s. productions such as «Señor Ruseñor», «Zenit. The tailor-made reality” or “Dinner”, in recent years has passed over the Festival of Theatre, Music and Dance of San Javier, which now recognizes its artistic career “so appreciated in the Festival of San Javier”.
