Gala Catalonia Dances Against Cancer

The closing of the festival was celebrated with the charity Gala Catalonia Dances Against Cancer.

This gala offered a unique opportunity to enjoy the talent of renowned Catalan dancers who are actively dancing in prestigious international companies such as Het National Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Czech National Ballet, National Dance Company (Spain), Theater Basel Ballet, National Ballet of Spain and Gauthier Dance, among others.

This show was a fantastic showcase for the outstanding artistic quality of Catalan dancers, who, united in the cause against cancer, performed voluntarily for the public at home. This gala, with a unique format, stood out with a repertoire of varied styles that included own creations as well as renowned choreographies from Marco Goecke, Wayne McGregor and Sharon Fridman.
