Marc Villanueva Mir was born in Barcelona in 1992. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Stage directing and Dramaturgy by the Institut del Teatre (Barcelona) and a second one in Theory of the Literature and Comparative Literature by the Universitat de Barcelona. He studied the Master of Arts in Applied Theatre Studies at the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen.
His artistic projects are rooted into political questions, focusing specially on the ethical problems and dimensions of representation, the performativity of discourse and the relationships between knowledge and power.
His works are presented both in black boxes and in white cubes, as well as in non-conventional venues. Besides his own projects, he works as a dramaturge in devised theatre pieces and interdisciplinary works. He is member of the editorial board of the journal (Pausa.) for contemporary Catalan theatre.
He has been granted an Agata Baum de Bernis fellowship for artists and cultural managers by the Goethe-Institut (2015), an invitation to join the Internationales Forum of the Theatertreffen in Berlin (2017), and a postgraduate studies’ fellowship by “la Caixa” (2017). He has been a resident artist in Frankfurt LAB and Bòlit Contemporary Arts Centre Girona. His work is endorsed by the Program for Youth Employment, which is co-funded by the European Social Fund and the Department of Labor of the Catalan Government.
