OBJECTORA is an international theatre company based in Catalonia (Spain) which specialises in visual arts applied to contemporary theatre. We offer our own productions of visual theatre with contemporary puppetry, microcinema and object theatre, as well as support to other companies, whom we support through the design of visual theatre elements applied to contemporary productions as well as makeup, costume, prop, puppet and scenography design and making.
The company started in 2018 in Scotland and it was created by Sònia Gardés, after more than 10 years of experience working in theatre and cinema. Gardés trained as a makeup artist for film and theatre and graduated in Fine Arts, where she is currently working as an Associate Professor. She studied Costume Design and Making at the Nottingham Trent University and then continued her career and training in Scotland, where she specialised in storytelling and contemporary puppetry with artists like Mervyn Millar (Handspring Puppets, Significant Object).
Objectora explores interpersonal narratives and is profoundly committed to social and climate justice in its research, creations and designs. Since the beginning of the project, Sònia Gardés has worked, collaborated and done residencies with the National Theatre of Scotland, National Theatre of Qatar, Puppet Animation Scotland, Edinburgh Children’s Festival, Vision Mechanics, Gavin Glover, the Federation for European Storytelling and the Amsterdam Storytelling Festival, amongst others.
