The jury singled out his work ‘El cos més bonic que s’haurà trobat mai en aquest lloc’ “for its poetic breath and mastery of theatrical voices. Josep Maria Miró i Coromina has constructed a choral work for a single performer that draws on different perspectives that challenge and move the reader. A work that, as well as dealing with a highly topical theme, is based on an original prismatic structure and an enormous aesthetic risk”.
