Tere Almar

artistic director

biography

Tere Almar was nominated to carry out the duties of artistic director for the Fira in 2008. Throughout the course of those two years, Almar worked on making the artistic acts proposed for the Fira more dynamic and stimulating so as to redress the balance of the artistic fields represented at the Fira (music, theatre and dance). Through the character of guest artist, Almar gave particular prominence to the theme of street parties (in 2008 with Manel Vilanova and Leandre Escamilla, co directors of the Xarxa Theatre) and to the debate surrounding the ideas of tradition and modernity (last year with the versatile Valencian artist Carles Santos).

Almar has been working since 1985 in the Municipal Committee of Culture of Mataró and has collaborated on Fira de Teatre al Carrer de Tàrrega, Sitges Teatre Internacional and on various cultural initiatives in Maresme. Her career satisfies the artistic, professional profile as well as the vast cultural experience in cultural management required by the Foundation.
