Pineda de Mar
Bring the magic of "castells" to your next event
If you want to bring the Catalan castells (human towers) tradition closer to your associates and pass on its values to your company, this is your opportunity. The Colla Castellera de l’Alt Maresme and Selva Marítima offers you two activities to experience castells up close. The group has its headquarters and rehearsal space in Pineda de Mar, Maresme, and was founded in 2013. They are known as the “maduixots” (strawberries) because of the strawberry red color of their shirts.
They offer two types of activities to companies:
– Workshop on castells: it consists of briefly explaining the history of human towers in Catalonia; watch videos of the best castells ever made; learn to bandage yourself; learn the technique to climb a castell; make pillars, whenever possible. The workshops can be held at their location in Pineda de Mar or in another large space, either inside or outside. Approximate duration: 90 minutes.
– Exhibition: this activity consists of making pillars and castells of 5 or 6 nets, depending on the availability of people in the group. There is a possibility that the participants will also be placed in the “pinya”, the structure of a human tower that reinforces the lower and second floors. Approximate duration: 20-30 minutes.
All activities should be done depending on the availability of members. For the workshop we only need 2-3 people, while for the exhibition, at least 40 people. So, if it’s a weekday, it should preferably be in the afternoon.
In the case of the exhibition, it must be held in a large space, preferably outdoors. If it is indoor, with a minimum height of 7 meters. In the case of the workshop, it can be either indoor or outdoor, preferably indoor.
