Cristina Falcinellà is becoming increasingly popular in Sitges and the surrounding area thanks to her voice and her special touch on stage. She is one of those singers that you start and can't stop listening to.
A personal, intimate voice that makes the songs her own.
We met her at the Sitges Queer Fest 2021, where she premiered the highly personal concert “KHAIREMERI Project Queer intersections”.
Actor of theatre, cinema and TV, he has a professional career of more than 25 years. His versatility as an actor has led him to work in different theatrical disciplines ranging from comedy theatre, the purest gestural theatre and musicals.
The last super-production where he has worked has been in the musical comedy La Jaula de las Locas Nostromo Prod. at the Tívoli Theatre in Barcelona in 2018.
He is currently touring around Spain with the musical comedy La Jaula de las Locas (2022-2023).
Also based in Sitges, he now collaborates with the Sitges Queer Fest as a member of the jury.
The atmosphere of love for culture and freedom in which his family brought him up forged his philanthropic personality with strong musical and poetic references. He has been trained in dance, music and theatre at different stages. At the ESAD in Malaga he began his career in Dramatic Art, which was interrupted by his entry to the Academy of Operación Triunfo.
In 2011 he discovered the Catalan language and embarked on self-taught language learning. Now he is immersed in a process of search and personal and artistic rebirth after the great "boom" that the program meant in his life and in the midst of promoting his first book "A poet in silence".
He opens the Sitges Queer Fest presenting the first show, Queer Varietés, and doubles up as a member of the jury for the final of the Colors Queer Talent Show.

Berni is a magician and the son of a magician.
After 40 years dedicated to illusionism, especially to children, and 20 years as a hospital clown, he is presenting himself to this Queer Talent to take a step forward and to be able to do an illusionism show that he never dared to do. It's never too late if you want it with your heart.
He promises to enjoy himself. And if the audience enjoys it too, so much the better.
PhD student in contemporary art research, performer with notions of minimalist contemporary dance and textual theatre.
Fuses aspects of Latin and Iberian culture, references from pop dance, symphonic pop and European video dance. He is especially interested in identity, contrasts and creating atmospheres.
My name is Yanis Stone. I am a singer, songwriter and musician.
I learned to sing and play the piano on my own. I also create all my looks and make-up because it is my passion.
My most important goal and purpose in life is to bring people together through my skills, art and technology.
I use my voice to reach a person's soul, underlining every performance with a stage persona; it is the way I express my emotions and feelings and I believe that the most important thing in a person is kindness.
