A new employment experience for young people. Èpica i Singular is a new project where a series of young people looking for a job will learn and improve their abilities in a new scenario and in a way that completely differs from the norm.
This new experience, financed by the Catalan Employment Service within the framework of its Youth Guarantee programmes, offers two lines of work for young people under 30.
The first one, which we may call “of employment”, consists in developing a series of professional abilities and competences by co-creating a theatrical project with the rest of participants, La Fura dels Baus and other professionals. This action tries to provide a more attractive and different way to work with young people and will incorporate the learning of audiovisual techniques and construction specialties related to the world of entertainment (vertical work, structure assembly, etc.). This last aspect will be Anigami and BTC’s main area of action. This line of work will also include guidance on job search and contracting processes.
The second one, aimed at young entrepreneurs, offers a series of resources to facilitate the implementation of business and self-employment projects, be it in the creative industry sector, the construction sector, the media sector or other sectors.
In order to apply all they have learned, students must perform a final show. In this edition, the central theme was transhumanism, an international cultural and intellectual movement whose ultimate goal is to transform the human condition through the development and manufacture of widely available technology, which improve human capabilities, both physically and psychologically or intellectually.
During the development Kalliópê was part of the show helping students to carry out both their actions and their interactions with the public
