Minstrel trobadour or troubadour minstrel because in these times as in times gone by we really don’t know where the one begins and the other ends.

Biography
20 years ago Crispin d’Olot, old-fashioned troubadour, started performing in theaters, schools and places of Spain, Europe and Latin America. This theatrical, poetic and musical adventure was a response which this literary “jongleur” found utilizing classical literature as a tool to reconstruct cultural imaginary essential to a society increasingly marked by violence and the inability to meet on common points of identity and values. Currently Crispin d’Olot is considered a necessary cultural reference, he has been blessed with great successes on television especially prime time where the format has helped him promote his artistic quality.


Trovador juglaresco o juglar trovadoresco porque en estos tiempos como en los pretéritos no se sabe muy bien donde empieza lo uno y acaba lo otro.

Biography

Hace 20 años que Crispín d’Olot, trovador a la vieja usanza, viene representado por teatros, escuelas y plazas de España, Europa y América Latina. Esta aventura teatral, poética y musical, nació como respuesta del último juglar literario -que encontró en la literatura clásica una herramienta de cultura para reconstruir imaginarios que permiten el rescate de nuestra esencia- a una sociedad cada vez más marcada por la violencia y la incapacidad para reunirse en torno a puntos comunes de identidad y valores.En la actualidad Crispín d’Olot es considerado un referente cultural obligado, llegando incluso a cosechar grandes éxitos en programas de televisión de máxima audiencia por su poder de convocatoria y la calidad artística y nivel de producción.
