Quim Marcé | Speaker
Born in Girona, Catalonia (Spain)
in1969, Quim Marcé has been working as a technician of culture for the City
council of Bescanó for 21 years, a population of about 5000 inhabitants near
Girona. There used to be a theatre where two or three performances took place
every year. However, four years ago, the City council decided to bet for
culture and rehabilitated the old theater, creating a modern and functional
institution. Quim is the current Director at the Bescanó Theatre which offers more
than 60 performances every season.
The theater of Bescanó is well-known in the area because of its cultural offer,
but their complaint against the government’s VAT rise by selling carrots has served
as a device to stir up public interest the world over.
