El Graner is the centre for creation and study of the body and movement language. It aims at having an impact on different contexts of the creative fabric acting through several different work lines. The main areas of work of el Graner are: creation, internationalization, thought, education and proximity.
El Graner hosts dance artist residencies, develops artistic cooperation projects with other cultural agents and promotes the integration of the center within its neighborhood, among other objectives. As a center for creation, it offers the possibility of learning about artistic forms and practices and emphasizes an inclusive organizational structure that keeps a close contact with the audience through local activities.
This diversification of our lines of work, supported by the immediacy of online communication, allows us to act within the cultural context of the city of Barcelona and contribute with creation and promotion tools for different formats and spaces.
El Graner is housed on the former Philips industrial site in the Marina district. It was a major part of the Philips light and light-bulb factory based in the Zona Franca free port area. The shape of the building earned it the nickname ‘The Barn’, although the space was built and operated for years as a drying room for light bulbs. The Dutch multinational closed the factory for good in 2004.
