ENG: What is the Ball de Malcasats?

In Vilanova, the ball de malcasats is performed by the Agrupació de Balls Populars (the local folk dance association), but is it really a dance? Most of the time it is above all a satiric performance.

Hi Erik

Really excellent and informative blog, thanks for posting. As fellow ex-pats in Vilanova, we've been trying to work out what some of the Carnival events relate to. We've just got back from Moixo Foguer... absolutely no idea on that one!

Hi Mark,

Today, I have been busy taking pictures and up-loading, but I promise to come back with more details in my Moixó Foguer entry.

Thanks for leaving a comment!
