Throughout 40 years La Fura dels Baus has developed a method that goes beyond individualities and is articulated around collective work and amalgamation of talent. Now, via Èpica, La Fura wants to project both its creative solvency and its method’s success through a center that reunites learning and experiencing when it comes to creative projects. Èpica starts out from a central idea: learning is the result of sharing knowledge and experiences. That is why it will build itself on the collective work of different creators, professionals, technicians and scientists who will carry out projects which will later be validated by society through their exhibition.
