Off-road. Mugaritz, feeling a way

DOCSBARCELONA/Edition 2016 / Festival / Official Section / Off-road. Mugaritz, feeling a way


La Fura dels Baus depicts the amazing human team working at Restaurant Mugaritz: the meaning of achieving excellence, ideas that become dishes, the pains and joys in an ever-changing environment. The need to experiment beyond the boundaries of the senses, in a constant process of risk and reinvention, shows us a world of fantasy under the lead of Chef Andoni Luis Aduriz. A philosophical look at the people who on a daily basis shake the foundations of Mugaritz, where culinary goals have been overcome by creative processes.


Pep Gatell was born in 1954 in Barcelona. Since 1980, he has been one of the six artistic directors of the prestigious Catalan theater company La Fura dels Baus. He has collaborated on the development of the company language, a method of collective creation based on the friction and only under the tyranny of “the best idea is the one that matters”.

The Q&A with the director will be in Spanish without translation.
