PRODUCCIONS SCURA is a production company dedicated to street theatre, a form of entertainment that makes use of many of the languages of drama that can be performed in the street today: festive performances, theatrical events, parades and processions, travelling shows for children, correfocs, contemporary dance, percussion and others. The company came into being in Vila-real in 1997 and since then has travelled thousands of kilometres along lanes, roads, dual carriageways and motorways all over Spain, as well as to a number of different parts of Europe. Its shows include different theatrical techniques, most of which are based on street theatre and entertainment. Its productions range from small-scale shows to others aimed at very large audiences.
PRODUCCIONS SCURA is a member of the Valencian Association of Business of Theatre and Dance, AVETID
PRODUCCIONS SCURA SL, therefore consists of four artistic groups, each with its own very different style:
- SCURA SPLATS, travelling street theatre.
- LA BANDA DEL DRAC, shows involving songs for children.
- LA FURTIVA, contemporary dance.
- PERCUPADS, electronic street percussion.
SCURA SPLATS was founded in 1997 by Joan Raga and Carme Canós. Over these past 16 years, the company has created more than 25 shows, including its own productions and co-productions.
The shows have been performed in many towns and cities all over Spain and since the year 2002 Scura Splats has also expanded its horizons to include international venues.
Scura Splats has progressively incorporated different artistic disciplines into its performances, such as dance, circus, music and pyrotechnics, which it uses to create versatile shows that have gone down extremely well among audiences everywhere.
Since our beginnings, we have produced all kinds of shows: street theatre, correfocs, theatrical events, performances for children, performances for adults, café theatre, recitals, and so on. We believe in the complete actor, who is capable of developing different theatrical techniques throughout his or her career and of dealing with different spaces. This makes our work more meaningful and, therefore, more intense, while at the same time allowing us to be able to draw on a varied repertoire of proposals and theatrical alternatives.
LA BANDA DEL DRAC is a group of actors and actresses who are specialised in festive entertainment. La Banda del Drac is the fusion of different festive, theatrical and musical concepts.
All the shows by La Banda del Drac set out from a “theatrical conflict”, which leads on to songs and games. The audience, essentially made up of small children, is the real star and the most important character in the show.
Since the year 2000, La Banda del Drac has premiered 10 shows and has performed over 1,000 times all over Spain.
Participation, fun, games, songs and educational activities are the essential ingredients and the key points on which our shows are based.
In 2009 LA FURTIVA, a new artistic proposal, came into existence in Vila-real with the intention of experimenting with dance, cabaret or poetry.
LA FURTIVA aims above all to take dance into the streets, since all of us have a body that we use to express things and dance is the best of all languages. La Furtiva intends to go out onto the streets and squares of any town, village or city without having to ask anyone for permission and without having to answer to anybody – only to those crafty spectators who quite by chance happen to come across this new-born adventure.
