We cannot, however, talk about Lio without talking about his incredible show
We have the presence of Joan Grácia, Artistic Director and responsible for it, well known for being a multifaceted artist, actor, comedian, scriptwriter, director and producer.
IBR : What new features will we find in this season's show?
Joan Gràcia : This year's show will have a more sensual connotation, we will recall the best numbers in the history of Lío Ibiza , through a journey in time, in which those milestones in our history, interspersed with new and current ones, will once again take to the stage. Starting in a quiet way and evolving, ¨ in crescendo¨ as the night goes by.
Last year we performed the Lio show in London, with great success everything has to be said, and the characteristics of the space were very similar to those we have in Lio, so the show and the numbers
will be respecting that same dynamic
IBR : How have you directed this year's show with the difficulties that come with physical distance?
Joan Gràcia : As we say in our jargon, "The show never stops". ¨It is always very committed to offering quality shows and to committing to our audience, as Francisco commented earlier, the important thing is to bring a smile to our clients' faces and to make them happy after these difficult global times that we have had to live through.
IBR : What differences will the show have in relation to previous years?
Joan Gràcia : The only difference with respect to previous years will be the interaction with the audience, which is what characterises us as one of the most special and different places in the world, where the audience experiences unique sensations, and the artist-client dialogue is unique.
Finally, we have the presence of Pau Barba, corporative chef of Pacha Group, representative of haute cuisine , respected and humble chef wherever he may be, nominated for the National Gastronomy Awards, expert in the flavors of the island and the world and with great experience behind him who informs us with a shy smile, of the news of the season.
Pau Barba : This summer of 2020, we make a lot of emphasis on consolidating the Mediterranean cuisine, with fish from the island and we also have a great novelty, a giant grill for meat and fish, without forgetting the excellence in taste.
So, after introducing us to this wonderful journey of multiple sensations and fullness of senses, we just have to experience and enjoy it in first person.
