Ghosts, hits and theater off

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Antonio Castro Jiménez es el autor del libro 'El teatro de Lara', que este año celebra su 135 aniversario.

Lara Theater

Now the Lara Theater is a small delight located in one of the best areas of the city for cultural purposes: the Corredera Baja de San Pablo, Malasaña, where it coexists with decadent elements that make you dream of a false bohemian. However, in 1880, the year of its foundation, the place did not seem so favorable. "It was an area in the center of Madrid that, being very popular, did not enjoy a good reputation," writes Antonio Castro Jiménez, a chronicler of the town, in the book El teatro de Lara, which was recently presented through a theatrical visit. The press did not bet on this theater lost in that jumble of dark streets, but here it is, and this year it celebrates its 135th anniversary.

It was founded by Cándido Lara, who was called a butcher because he had earned his first money selling steaks in the Antón Martín market. Alfonso XII reigned and the subway, electricity or Gran Vía did not yet exist. Carnicero became a prominent man: he made his fortune as a supplier to the liberal army during the Second Carlist War and became a senator. Several works by the Nobel Prize winner Jacinto Benavente were premiered on the theater's tables, which are accessed after passing its three famous cast iron column halls, such as Los Interests Ventes, in 1907 (the public, after the premiere, carried the the playwright to his house), or El amor brujo, by Manuel de Falla, just a century ago. And around here still walks, according to legend, Lola Membrives, the actress whose ghost, some have heard sing.

The Lara had a large billboard during its first decades, with up to 30 weekly performances. "Here the precursor of the current microteatro, the 'theater by hours', was offered short pieces at reduced prices to attract the less affluent public," says Castro. It was in danger of disappearing before the Civil War and after its closure in the eighties, until it reopened in 1994. Lately the theater has been in good health and is no less crowded than it was in the beginning: around 25 performances are performed a week.

During the last 10 years Antonio Fuentes has been at the helm, who came from working in large multinationals. An experience, that of the company, not so common in the world of culture and that he says helped him a lot: "A theater is a company with very small profit margins. It also gives you satisfaction when you fill the rooms and watch the people enjoy people".

Among its latest innovations, in addition to the monthly payment of 20 euros for five functions, was the opening of the ancient theater to the most contemporary creation, creating the Off Room, first in its hall and now in the basement, which is open to small performances. companies of the vigorous alternative scene. Part of the current prestige of a director and playwright such as Miguel del Arco came from this hall, where he premiered in 2010 The function to be done, based on Pirandello. Even so, what really makes money are the great contemporary classics, of a more commercial nature, like La Llamada or Burundanga, which fill and fill seats. "Let's say that one thing subsidizes the other," says the director. And although many theaters of his time have disappeared, or have had to change their name to a cold commercial brand, Don Cándido's candy box, as they called it, is still there.

Le petit studio cinéma

Wandering Puppet Company and Cachivache Productions

SPAIN. Le Petit Studio Cinéma is a small theater of ingenuities and fairground cinema where Georges Méliès and his daughter Georgette bring us drawings and images that come to life, optical devices that contain the essence of cinema, thaumatropes, phenakistiscopes, praxinoscopes and zootropes that rotate and rotate at 16 images per second, tricking our retinas to create the magic of movement ...

Las ideas

Las ideas

Federico León

ARGENTINA. Ideas make us penetrate the life and mental universe of an artist. We assist from the inside towards the transformation of an open idea, how it takes shape, grows and acquires a definitive expression. Sometimes, real life breaks into the creative process, but just as often, artistic experiences break into the everyday. Abstract ideas and concrete events influence each other like a frenzied ping-pong match. The memory of the artist is our only thread. Until he starts to doubt ...

El grito en el cielo

El grito en el cielo

La zaranda

SPAIN. These destinations that end the pilgrimage of their lives, were deposited as deteriorated organs in this aseptic nursing home, with no hope other than palliative sedation that disintegrates them into nothingness. Treatments, rehabilitation sessions, and therapies (including the arts such as physical exercise or entertainment) routinely occupy the twilight of their days.

Great Falla Theater
Thursday 22 Time: 10:00 p.m. Duration: 80'

Mediterranean circus

Circo mediterráneo


SPAIN. After a performance of "El Circo Mediterráneo" the spectator will be able to take home a good handful of laughter and a bottle of the best contemporary circus in a show designed for all audiences in a broad sense, because it focuses, attracts and likes all possible viewers: children, youth and adults. The circus has always had a universal component: for all ages, tastes and backgrounds; This common language is the one that we recover thanks to our artists, who add the attractiveness and renewal that the circus has experienced today.

Teatro de los andes-teatro malayerba

Bolivia, Ecuador. It starts from the fact of the War of the Pacific and what this fact represented for Bolivian society. It is intended to be a poetic allegory of the loss of the coastline and the absence-presence "of a sea" in the imagination, in the aspirations, in the collection of a historical debt and the metaphorical character that this loss assumes for each one of the Bolivians.

Tía Norica Puppet Theater
Thursday 22 Time: 08:00 p.m. Duration: 90'

El loco y la camisa

El loco y la camisa

Banfield Teatro Ensamble

ARGENTINA. The subjective, when linked to the concept of madness, perhaps becomes objective. Who are the crazy and who are the healthy? There is no greater madness than to live in continuous lies. Unreality goes mad and perverts. And evil ..., which feeds itself without rest.

Central Dairy Room
Friday 23 Time: 08:00 p.m. Duration: 75'

Central Dairy Room
Saturday 24 Time: 06:00 p.m. Duration: 75'



Gabriel Chamé

ARGENTINA. In a staging totally stripped of everyday realism, the physical game and the white verse of the English teacher face and complement each other in a playful, hilarious and absurd language. Respecting Othelo's text, his poetry, and dramatic tension, I delve into the intentions of the characters through the comic gag, generating a sinister irony in the tragedy. Without solemnity, the relationship between the tragic and the comic, as keys to classical and contemporary theater.

Tía Norica Puppet Theater
Friday 23 Time: 10:00 p.m. Duration: 100'

El clan de la nube

El clan de la nube


SPAIN. It is a clan of thieves pursued by the relentless shadow of a cloud. There, wherever they go, the cloud moves behind them as a harbinger of the storm that is about to break.

Saturday 24 Time: 01:00 p.m. Duration: 60'

Floten Tecles

Floten Tecles

David Moreno & Cia.

SPAIN. A pianist who wants to elevate his music to the stars. A show where David Moreno plays the piano and sings hanging six meters high in a vertical position. Music, cinema, special effects, humor, poetry ... surprising minutes where the stage is heaven.

Saturday 24 Time: 08:30 p.m. Duration: 35'

The dance of the death

The dance of the death


SPAIN. We propose a new way to feel the party. With the help of a thousand effects and a 5 meter tall skeleton, The Dance Of The Death will turn the street into a real festival!

Cuando yo era...

Cuando yo era...

Eva Yerbabuena, Ballet Flamenco

SPAIN. Overture - Prologue - The Potter's Workshop - Fair - El Reñiero - Carnival - The Interrogation - Epilogue

What destiny has we lived! Three, two, one ... One date. One hour. A new countdown that begins in an instant in which we are pure crying, pure time, pure truth. Without memory or omission, without defeat or victory, without hatred and without love, like clay waiting to be molded, we make ourselves visible to the world so that it helps us to create ourselves (...) and in whose fears of oblivion and omission we will cease to exist, And, it does not matter if in the form of a dream, fiction or non-truth ... always in the last answer there will be another possible world.

Great Falla Theater
Saturday 24 Time: 10:00 p.m. Duration: 80'


FIT - Vitoria-Gasteiz International Theater Festival
Edition 2015 from October 9 to November 29

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Vitoria-Gasteiz International Theater Festival

The International Theater Festival wants to take advantage of its 40th edition to highlight the past of the festival and give prominence to the public that has supported it for 40 years, giving it a new dimension.

The festival is more alive than ever. It insists in a renewed and current way on the objectives that motivated its creation: to be a showcase for the most avant-garde trends in national and international performing arts; to be a meeting and debate place for the agents that intervene in the theater and to give maximum prominence to the public.

In this edition the festival intends to go one step further and actively involve all those people, who with their presence year after year have made it possible for the festival to celebrate its forty years on stage. It aspires to be a turning point from which the protagonism of the public has a qualitatively superior role.

The programming will feature international and national companies, avant-garde theater, in which the closeness between actor and audience constitutes its main identity feature, in addition to its performance in unconventional spaces.

Collaboration with local companies and actors is reinforced with their own productions designed to celebrate this fortieth edition.

Gatherings between actors and audiences, conferences on various aspects of the performing arts, radio theater, workshops with great theater directors ... will complement this special program.

The curtain will rise on a great work of the European avant-garde: Krapp's Last Tape, by Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett, directed by Peter Stein, one of the most prominent theater directors of the European avant-garde. It will be a real honor to be able to see Klaus María Branda on the Vitoria stage.
