The 13th version of site-specific multimedia performance series skinSITEs will be hosted by the famous Mercat des les Flors in Barcelona. The theater was built as "Agriculture Pavilion" for the Barcelona International Exposition (world's fair) in 1929. After the exposition, the building was used as a wholesale flower market hall, until it was turned into a theater in 1983.

"skinSITEs XIII" is titled "memento mori" to celebrates the beauty ofthe transient at the occasion of the opening of the newly renovated theater space of Mercat des les Flors. The history of the building is the history of the transient matter: world¹s fair, flowers, and dance and theater, their existence can be perceived only for a limited amount of time - all is bound to die, all beauty is limited in time. The classic artistic subject of mortality will be brought to contemporary media-video, as much as to contemporary movement / choreography. "skinSITEs" has been one of post theater's most successful approaches to join site-specific theater with multi-media performance. 12 cities in 9 countries all over Europe and Asia have commissioned versions for a wide range of buildings and their histories.
