I'm most used to bumping into Xarxa on one of their Correfoc (fire parade) espectáculos, which are a regular feature of fiesta-time in the towns around their home town (Vila-real). Here are some past meetings...
Last Friday night was what they call a gran formato espectáculo, which I think translates as 'light the blue touchpaper...'
Xarxa (pronounced Char-cha) provide their audiences with a little bit of street-theatre; some mime; and an experience close to warfare - without putting them in (too much) danger. For a free (yes, free) one-hour show, it's outrageously good value.
Two tips if you ever get wind that Xarxa are coming to a town near you:
First - don't hesitate, go!
Second, don't wear your best coat.
