Poet, musician and engineer


Joan Rotger Julià is a poet, musician and engineer. Through his art, he explores terrains that move him, like widespread dislike of change, normality that oppresses individual expression and the intersections of personal relationships. He is currently researching suicidal thoughts and the construct of masculinity.

He studied jazz and modern music at Taller de Músics (ESEM) and Renewable Energy Engineering at UPV/EHU. In the music world, he is a member of the group Dahlia and has been part of other projects like Atzur and Verlaat. In poetry, he was a finalist for the Gumersind Gomila Young Poetry Award in 2022 and the Salvador Iborra Young Art competition of poetry in 2023. He has recently taken part in poetry festivals all over the Catalan-speaking areas. In April 2024, he published Interstici (Llentrisca edicions) with Cecília Navarro Frau and Anaïs Faner Anglada.


While at Faberllull, Joan Rotger Julià and Anna Irina Russell will be working together, comparing play and the fold as examples of rifts in reality and, therefore, places with the possibility of taking new shapes.

Her research on the idea of the fold will be developed through the conjunction of experimenting with poetic language and physical work with fabric. Gathering, folding, sliding and overlapping will be some of the movements that will serve to explore the limits of this relationship with play.

One of the questions they will ask is how this play stretches the limits of the relational space, meaning how relationships between people and space are diluted/deformed/transformed, with the fold as the material and metaphorical location of that fact.
