All while supporting Pallapupas with the sale of official merchandise and the reverse box office as payment at the end of the work.

A decade ago, the group started with the help of the pedagogical coordinator of the Aula de Teatre de Martorell, Alícia Zamora, and did so in a course to work on the emotions of the members of the Club Social Punt de Trobada. Consolidated as a course, a couple of years ago it took a step forward and its members wanted to consolidate it as a theater company. And here was born La Colla, which this Sunday has performed for the first time independently.

The pandemic deprived the Martorell company of presenting itself in society, but a year later and after an uncertain course, they have managed to make it a reality. According to Zamora, “now we are very happy to be able to carry out our proposal, this year we were able to work, but without knowing if there would be a presentation”
