Carles Rebassa (*1977, Palma de Mallorca) is a poet and actor. He has also worked as author and prop master on productions by the Mag Teatr – Mag Poesia ensemble.

His long poems, written in Catalan, deal with violence, sensuality and passion. Rebassa says that his strongest impulse to right stems from a revolt against injustice. “I like poets that have something concrete to say, that are aggressive and that slap people in the face with their works.” Despite this, Rebessa does not consider himself as a political poet; he prefers to speak about epic poetry.
