Pelat is silence, expectation, strength, tension, and magical, spontaneous participation. It is an original performance combining dance, theatre and circus. It is a proposal that erases the boundaries between dance, circus, theater, and performance: between audience and the show through a natural review of handcrafted techniques. This unique performance is based on the study of the body, movement, people’s behavior, craftsmanship and traditions. It is intended to leave space to the imaginary in order to share experiences and responsibilities in an evanescent ritual.

Joan Català was born in Barcelona and describes himself as a curious observer interested in visual art and movement. Català understands the stage as a space for dialogue between humans, objects and the environment where game and work melt together with the tools, experiences and ideas that each of us bring. Joan trained in contemporary dance, physical theater and clown with different professionals. In 2012, Joan started to develop his own approach around scenic arts focused on street and urban landscapes. The result is the show Pelat which has won Català a number of awards, such as the jury first prize for best street show (2014) at the Miramiro festival in Ghent, Belgium, and the Zirkolika 2013 prizes.
