MADferia 2017 - XII Madrid Performing Arts Fair

Yesterday, Tuesday 17, began the XIII edition of MADferia, a performing arts fair organized by ARTEMAD with one main objective: to promote, stimulate and generate a market in the field of performing arts.

MADferia 2017 is held on January 17, 18, 19 and 20.

ARTEMAD is a non-profit association of a professional nature, constituted by companies that produce Performing Arts in the Community of Madrid. Born in 1996, it is in the process of growth and currently has 30 associated companies.

Its main objectives are to improve the conditions of production, distribution, quality and professionalism in the Madrid theater sector and, by extension, throughout the country; represent its associates in political, organizational and management forums at all levels; vindicate the public service function of the theater; as well as promoting and informing about any cultural, political and social movement with an impact on the sector.

ARTEMAD is part of the State Federation of Associations of Theater and Dance Companies (FAETEDA), whose birth it was also a promoter in 1996. Since its constitution, it has also been part of the Coordinator of Spanish State Fairs - COFAE, and Contemporary Scene Association.

ARTEMAD brings together companies that, from their idiosyncrasies, defend similar artistic and business foundations. Companies with a vocation for public service in our artistic projects, with added value in terms of training professionals: actors, technicians, choreographers, set designers, dancers, producers, illuminators, authors ... In this segment the engine that energizes Madrid theater, the impulse that generates evolution, not only in the theater's own languages, but in matters of application and use of technological resources, modes of production, etc. The most important creators of the last 25 years have come from here, joining others, already classics of production, first independent and then Alternative.

They constitute an Alternative segment within the Madrid Theater Sector. They are a privately managed public service, they reinvest the profit in artistic projects. This deserves recognition and consideration that it does not now have in the budgets of the central and regional governments, in the regulations governing subsidies, in the designs of Theater Networks, and in the operation of the sector in general.

The Vitoria-Gasteiz theater festival: four decades opening the doors to dreams

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

41st Vitoria-Gasteiz International Theater Festival

The festival is one of the most relevant cultural manifestations for Vitoria citizens and a benchmark for many Spanish cities. For four decades the festival has offered a wide selection of national and international theater, accommodating all genres, from classical to the most avant-garde theater.

The theater festival stands as the fundamental tool that promotes the performing arts in Vitoria-Gasteiz and Álava. During its four decades of existence, the festival has opened the doors to thousands of people of various generations, who now constitute a loyal, demanding and knowledgeable audience that fills the theaters of the city.

A project always alive

How to renounce the "Festival" phenomenon in a city that has one of the oldest, even today, despite the fact that similar projects have multiplied like spores in all corners of our geography?

So many years of work and such a warm response from the public, it well deserves to keep an event of relevance. Something expected every fall in the city of Vitoria both by the population and the media, as well as the companies themselves that want to show their works at the Teatro Principal Antzokia and the rest of the municipal theaters.

The festival is doomed to be a cultural project in constant search for definition, but always eagerly awaited ...

The festival today

    The International Theater Festival is organized by the municipal network of theaters. His objectives:
  • To be an international sample of the best theater that is done today.
  • Bet on all kinds of artistic languages, from the most avant-garde to the classics of all time.
  • Dedicate retrospectives to emerging authors.
  • Advocate for the promotion of local companies.
  • In recent editions it has recovered the creation of spaces for debate and reflection on the scenic environment. This circumstance has allowed companies, audiences and creators to chat and enjoy themselves around the theater once the performance is over.

Since last October 6, a new edition has been held, the 41st Vitoria-Gasteiz International Theater Festival, full of shows and which will come to an end on November 24.

Here we leave the magazine with all the programming where we can keep up to date with each work.

International Festival of Theater, Music and Dance of San Javier

The San Javier International Festival of Theater, Music and Dance, declared of Regional Tourist Interest, began its journey in 1969 thanks to the initiative of a group of theater fans who staged their works on a small stage in a small room with chairs of wood.

Over time, the regional theater groups gave way to the important national and international companies; the provisional and tiny enclosure, to a magnificent auditorium, and this festival became one of the most important attractions of the cultural offer that the Region of Murcia offers in summer, rubbing shoulders with the best festivals that are celebrated in Spain (Mérida, Almagro ...).

The San Javier Theater, Music and Dance festival has become a mandatory meeting point for all those fans of these disciplines who come together every year in August at the Almansa de San Javier Park Auditorium.

Forty-six years of history, twelve directors, more than two hundred premieres, more than four thousand actors, approximately three hundred and fifty thousand spectators, some nine hundred sound and lighting technicians, around eight hundred hours of spectacle and countless moments of sensations and good vibes. They meet in a magical setting that, in the open air, shows us the best shows on August nights.

From the Moscow Ballet, to Cristina Hoyos, through Julio Bocca, Mario Gas, Marcel Marceau, Marianne Faithfull, La Fura dels Baus, Paco de Lucía, Joan Manuel Serrat and Ricardo Miralles, La Cuadra de Sevilla, Comediants, Rafael Amargo, Teatro de la Abadía, Juan Carlos Rubio, Dagoll Dagom… These are some of the names linked to the most recent history of the festival.

The festival will be held from August 3 to 23 and presents a total of 14 shows, 8 theater, one for family audiences, 3 music, including the return of La Fura dels Baus, as well as a concert exclusive to Miguel Poveda, and one for dance, with 12 soloists from the Compañía Nacional de Danza to which are added two other shows outside the auditorium, one for the circus in the Plaza de España, in San Javier, and another on the street in the Paseo Colon in Santiago de la Ribera.

The 47th edition of the Festival will begin on August 3 with "La estupidez", a work by the Argentine author, little represented in Spain, Rafael Spregelburd set in Las Vegas. The play that has actors Toni Costa and Fran Perea in the cast, directed by Fernando Soto, is a kind of road-movie adapted to the theater that tells five parallel stories that intersect becoming one.

Olite Classical Theater Festival

Friday, July 22, 2016

It will take place from today, July 22, until next August 6

Festival de Teatro Clásico de Olite - RETOM

The Olite Palace, an extraordinary Gothic monument, housed the court of King Carlos III. In that place, art and culture flourished and from its battlements the courtiers contemplated the games of arms or with bulls that took place in La Cava.


Today, La Cava continues to be a space where the best theatrical productions are represented, those that have not yet been seen in Navarra and that make up an attractive, sometimes risky program of proposals that have their creative starting point in the classical. In addition to the programming of shows that sometimes leave the main stage to occupy other spaces within the castle itself or on the streets of the city, the festival includes other activities, such as workshops and courses.

The commitment to new languages, shows for family audiences and the occupation of the street as a first-rate stage space is one of the hallmarks of the Olite Classical Theater Festival as well as the participation of a good number of agents from the theater sector of the provincial community and the collaboration of the Olite City Council and its most dynamic agents.

The Olite Classical Theater Festival begins in the second half of July and runs until the beginning of August, including at least three weekends in its calendar.

Artists take to the streets to celebrate Music Day

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

- The main Spanish cities celebrate the European Music Day this week.

- The music industry has suffered in recent years the economic crisis and VAT.

- Barcelona and Madrid host a concert in favor of refugees.

European Music Day

This Tuesday, June 21, the European Music Day is celebrated (a tradition started in 1982 by our French neighbors), a great opportunity to support and defend the Spanish music industry. An industry that has suffered in recent years due to the economic crisis and laws such as the increase in cultural VAT, and that is recovering little by little by betting on new forms of consumption by citizens.

In a country where piracy is finally declining and users who decide to pay to listen to music online are growing, record companies try to reach the young market through social networks. Festivals such as those organized this week by the main cities of the country allow thousands of people to listen to their favorite artists in concert. We review the activities that some of these cities have prepared.

Madrid. The capital opens the Madrid Music City festival this Tuesday. During this week there will be activities in Matadero and the Conde Duque cultural center around music, with exhibitions, debates or cinema. Saturday will be the icing on the cake with the MMC Fest, an event that will be held in the Matadero square that will feature performances by Soleá Morente, Imelda May, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Molotov Jukebox and Parov Stelar.

The Retiro pond will host the last concert of the Classical x Contemporary cycle on Tuesday. Under the motto "Music saves us", the Fourth and Tenth Symphonies by Gustav Mahlers will be played, for piano for 4 hands.

On the night of the 21st, in the La Riviera room at 7:00 p.m., the new edition of the # MiMúsicaTuRefugio festival will also take place, a charity macroconcert in favor of organizations that help refugees who want to enter Europe. Andrés Suárez, Depedro and Rozalén among other artists will participate in the Madrid edition. The entrance has a price of 15 euros.

Barcelona. The # MiMúsicaTuRefugio concert will also have its Barcelona version, with the same objective, but this time in the Apolo hall. Amaral, Delafé, Elefantes, Joana Serrat, La Pegatina, Maika Makovski and Sidonie will play from 8:00 p.m. on the 21st.

The Barcelona Symphony Orchestra will offer a concert the same day on Sant Sebastiá beach at 8.30 pm, with works by Beethoven, Copland, Mendelssohn and Dvorak.

Andalucía. The Institute of Culture and the Arts of Seville has organized, as every year, about thirty musical activities. Different musicians from the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville will play in public spaces in the capital, such as Plaza Nueva or Plaza de la Encarnación. At the Puerta de Jerez from 6:00 p.m., young people will be able to enjoy the No Festival, a free event in which local bands participate.

Musical events will also take place in the city of Cádiz this week, including a Micro Open session on Friday 24.

Valencia. The Levantine city will pay tribute to the Music Day on the 24th and 25th, at the Cerati Café –where the concerts will be free– and at the Deluxe Pop Club, with the participation of Moonflower and Doctor Lobo at a price of 3 euros.

The Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía celebrates a double edition of its nightly open day "Nit a Les Arts" on Friday and Saturday nights this week, with which the cultural enclave says goodbye to the activity open to the public until the month of September, as reported by the Generalitat in a statement.

"Nit a Les Arts" offers technical-artistic exhibitions and live performances by the Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana and the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana, as well as an exhibition with costume elements and props from the opera "Aida" for anyone who approach the Santiago Calatrava building.

As an end to the party, both nights, a music session with a DJ will put the end to the day. The activity to the public begins both on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 with the beginning of the six passes of the technical-artistic exhibition that hosts the stage of the Main Hall.

In groups of up to 240 people, attendees have the opportunity to learn in situ, through a show lasting about 40 minutes, the operation of the stage machinery, lighting, audiovisuals and all the necessary elements to start an opera performance.

The artistic part of this exhibition is in charge of the artists of the Center Plácido Domingo and the Ballet of the Generalitat, who offer a representation, directed by Emilio López, that combines elements of lyrical and dance.

In order to enjoy this activity, those interested must present themselves at the Les Arts Ticket Office within 30 minutes prior to the start of the pass that best fits their agenda. A maximum of two invitations per person will be delivered until the capacity for each shift is completed.

Likewise, the arts center reserves a quota of seats for these passes to its Season subscribers, who may make their reservation between June 29 and 30 in the section of the website that the coliseum will have for this purpose.

Starting at 8:30 pm on both evenings, the Lobby of the Main Hall will open its doors to enjoy an exhibition of costumes and props from the opera "Aida", by Giuseppe Verdi.

The public can freely enjoy the costumes designed by Moritz Junge for this Les Arts co-production with London's Covent Garden and the Oslo Opera House, as well as the props used in this montage.
