Artist (director, actress, singer), performance studies researcher.
Pla de l'Estany (Catalonia)


Elvira Prado-Fabregat is an artist, philologist, and performance studies researcher. She studied Catalan and English at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and English Literature and French at the University of Edinburgh. She then went to the University of Bristol to study as a postgraduate researcher in the Department of Drama, where she completed her MPhil. From a young age, she has worked as an actress and singer in many theatre, tv shows and films. She is currently working on the project 'Més lloc per a la fosca', which will be a postdramatic musical. The show belongs to a broader project that includes academic research, primary and secondary school workshops, as well as adult workshops, and community engagement. As a researcher, she will soon resume her PhD research at the University of Barcelona.


During my stay at Faberllull's residency I will be working on the book "Des del paisatge més fosc" ("From the darkest landscape"). The essay is the final part of a wider project that includes an album, a show, and an exhibition. Solitud reflects the tension of a struggle to redefine the concept of nature. "Des del paisatge més fosc" offers a new approach to the Catalan canonic novel that connects it to the current ecological crisis, and the contemporary schools of thought of ecofeminism and the posthumanities, as well as the gothic traits of the novel linked to folklore, gender violence and "rude nature". The book also examines the mythic universe created by Víctor Català/Caterina Albert through fragments of the project's creative processes.
