Title: Castellers - Human Towers. Catalonia, Spain
Els Castells, the human towers, is a Catalan tradition that represents solidarity and team spirit among Catalan people. The people climb up the other people to reach the highest tower. For this International Festival, Amity's trained in the sport will teach the technique to build these towers with a small example, one person climbing up on the shoulders of another person (two floors tower = two people high). All around, other members are supporting them from behind. They are the "pinya" (pine cone), the foundation of the castell.
