The street theatre company EL SIDRAL was created in Lleida in 1986. The main aim of the company is to create interactive theatre in which the audience is strongly involved.
Through their creations, the company is hoping to open the door to a magical joyful world inviting the audience to enter with new eyes, becoming children again and forgetting about reality.
EL SIDRAL creates plays for all audiences, roving street theatre performances and entertainment shows directed to children.
“The coeur machine” and “The dishonest” are the most well know of their shows. Both premiered at Fira Tàrrega and have been performed over 150 times, mostly in Spain and Catalunya but also abroad.
The entertainment shows for children are “The jongleurs”, “The mad’s party” and “One of pirates”.
EL SIDRAL also has indoor theatre shows: “Nora and the lost tale”, “Little red riding hood” and “Improssible stories”.
Another aspect for which the company is known is for its theatrical outdoor acts with peculiar characters created for special events, weddings or any other type of celebrations.
EL SIDRAL has been programmed in several theatres and festivals in Catalonia (Fira Tàrrega, Fira Titelles in Lleida), Andorra and Spain (Festival Internacional de teatro de calle de Santa Maria de Paramo, FiGa Gandia, MOBA Festival Artes de Calle de Monzon, Festival Internacional de Teatro de Calle de Alcorcon FITCA and Festival Internacional Teatre al Carrer Vila-real).
