The sculptural quality of hairdressing becomes theatre in the barbers chairs of OSADIA.

This street theatre company formed in Barcelona in 1996 designed multifaceted hairdresser Alex Rendon. He envisaged a moment where an audience member becomes the central performer and is transformed on stage as styling becomes a showpiece, much to the enthralled rapture of the remaining audience.

These transformations can happen anywhere – in a park, on the street, at a makeshift festival site – and to anyone who dares accept the challenge to sit in OSADIA´s grand barber´s chairs. They create original and provocative exhibitions of sophisticated make-up and hair art, set to fantastic music mixes.

The audience is always amazed by the transformed characters that descend from the chair, who become the centre of attention and are photographed wherever they go.

Since this innovative show was first presented in Barcelona in 1996 it has been presented throughout Europe, Australia, US, South America , Africa, China and South East Asia.
