Roger Bernat - After studying architecture, he discovered theatre and at
the age of 25 he entered the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona to study
directing and dramaturgy. Soon after, he founded and directed, with
Tomàs Aragay, the company General Elèctrica. Well known in Catalonia for
their daring and engaged projects, General Elèctrica (1997-2001) created
a dozen remarkable productions. Roger Bernat often concentrates on a
variety of social groups (heroes, transsexuals, cab drivers, etc.) in
his ongoing search for new theatrical forms. His best-known plays
include Que algú em tapi la boca (2001), Bona gent (2003) in
collaboration with Juan Navarro, Amnèsia de fuga (2004), LA LA LA LA
(2004), Tot és perfecte (2005) and Das Paradies Experiment (2007). Apart
from his stage work, Roger Bernat also directs videos.
