Biography
Fifteen 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 quince 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.
