SWAB talks with… Jordi Coll

“I am art. I am Barcelona. I am Swab” is a series of interviews with relevant people of the Barcelona creative environment, whose aim is to enhance the cultural network of the city.

Today we talk to Jordi Coll, an actor trained in theater and musical comedy.

I am Jordi Coll. I am art. I am Barcelona. I am Swab.

A word that describes Barcelona?
Walk around

Is your place of creation, the studio, inspired by your city?
Absolutely. During rehearsal periods, what I do most is walk around the city, stopping to read the text, memorize it…

If Barcelona was an art work, what would you name it?
Step by step

A place in the city that connects you with art?
The bar of Sala Beckett

A message to young creatives?
Move as much as they can. Explore creative avenues or different scenic forms. Soak up what others don’t do. Music, painting, theater, … everything. We are in a very fucked up time. The best we can do is to tell it in every possible way and without fear.
