How it all began. L’OBRADOR Creation Space is a project that was born in 2016 thanks to choreographer Roberto Olivan and the company that accompanies him in his creative projects: ROPA / Roberto Olivan Performing Arts.
The birth of this creative space is a natural consequence of Roberto Olivan’s professional career. He counts on extensive experience that led him to share all his know-how baggage with other creators, to exchange his vision and experience within the performing arts world and, in particular, within the dance and movements arts sector.
In addition, Roberto Olivan has conceptualised and produced the Deltebre Dansa festival annually since 2004, a consolidated festival that is now an international benchmark for the performing arts. Deltebre Dansa has been awarded an EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) award granted by the Association of European Festivals, among other awards. L’OBRADOR Creation Space opens up the opportunity to extend all these activities throughout the year by offering an annual programme.
Located in the Old Deltebre Rice Chamber, this project has been possible thanks to the lending of the space by Deltebre City Council and the comprehensive refurbishment financed and directed by ROPA / Roberto Olivan Performing Arts.
