The Catalonian capital of Barcelona is slated to host an event most aptly described as the world's very first comedy festival to have adopted a multilingual format.
(TRAVPR.COM)UK/SPAIN - September 17th, 2012 - The festival will take place over the course of four weeks, with shows presented in English, Dutch and Swedish among other languages. Comedy acts will use a variety of venues in Barcelona, with some events being presented to the public free of charge.
Among the many comedic styles on display will be improvisation, stand-up, mime, storytelling and clown. Programme organisers even hope to add a short motion picture event to the festivities, which are scheduled to last from 27th September to 21st October. Of special interest to many who have attended in the past is the Logan Murray Workshop, a course that explains the basic principles underlying the craft of comedy, as well as offering tips about how to perform for a live audience and live to tell the tale.
In keeping with the multilingual format of the festival, show information about each individual event is available online in the language scheduled to be used during that event. English, however, will be used as a de facto international language for general purposes, including the event's Twitter feed, Facebook page and general website.
Event organisers have moved the traditional date away from November in an effort to ensure the comedy festival does not clash with the high tourism season in Barcelona. It is hoped this will make staying in the city more affordable. A key goal of the festival is sustainability; programme organisers are making a concerted effort to make the festival ‘as digital as possible’.
In keeping with that goal, interested comedy fans are invited to obtain information about the events scheduled at the festival by logging on to the official website, which is at http://www.barcelonacomedyfestival.com/.
Anyone looking to attend the Barcelona Comedy Festival can find a collection of good value holiday villas and apartments for rent in the nearby town of Sitges on the website - www.SitgesHillsVillas.com.
