The pandemic opens a new theatrical era

2020 July 9, Thursday

Outstanding creators reflect on the formats that emerged in the quarantine, a mix of performing and audiovisual arts. The CDN bets on ‘streaming’ and HBO announces a hybrid series

The pandemic opens a new theatrical era

The coronavirus pandemic has opened a new era in the performing arts. The months of confinement have fostered an unexpected relationship of this ancient thousand-year-old art with audiovisual and digital technologies that have lit hybrid formats, which drink as much from theatrical, cinematographic and television language, to which no one yet dares to label, but with many possibilities for the future. Not only have hundreds of films from shows performed in the past been published, but many artists have set out to create new works specifically designed for online display.

The exploration has been so fruitful that now that the activity is returning to the stage, no one is considering abandoning it. This same Tuesday, the HBO Spain television network announced a project in this line led by Irene Escolar and Bárbara Lennie, two renowned actresses both in theater and cinema, who also participate as producers. They do not want to give details yet, only that it will be an anthological series of six episodes that will mix both disciplines and that will air in the fall, grouped under the title of Scenario 0.

In the world of the scene there are also movements in this regard. The main theaters in the world have already announced their intention to maintain "virtual rooms" in the future as a complement to their face-to-face programming. One of them is the Centro Dramático Nacional (CDN), the largest Spanish public production institution, which has devised a cycle of works written expressly to be viewed in streaming, in which it has involved big names on the national scene. Starting with its director, Alfredo Sanzol, who inaugurated the cycle on June 26, up to Juan Mayorga, Pablo Remón, Lucía Carballal, Pau Miró, Denise Despeyroux, Andrea Jiménez, Noemi Rodríguez and Victoria Szpunberg, in addition to twenty outstanding actors.

The cycle is made up of nine short pieces written in the last two months that are grouped into three shows around three concepts related to the pandemic and that give each one its title: The Shock, The Distance and The Uncertainty. They are represented behind closed doors before several cameras for their live broadcast on the Internet, something unimaginable four months ago.

How to call this? How is it different from any other audiovisual creation? And of the face-to-face theater? EL PAÍS gathered last week at the María Guerrero theater in Madrid (CDN headquarters) six of the creators participating in the cycle to collect their impressions. The main one is that everyone feels they are learning a new language about which there is nothing written. A mestizo genre that breaks the seams of theater and audiovisual creation.

“I had never seen the stage with the intensity with which I have seen it in this work. The fact of using the camera not from the audience's shot as it would be done in a traditional recording but following the actors gave me an unexpected freedom, to the point that I decided to expand the stage: I realized that I could use the dressing rooms, the patio of seats, the entire theater ”, summarizes Sanzol, whose work reflects his own experience as a patient with coronavirus. The fever, the bewilderment, the fear.

Pablo Remón, who in addition to being a playwright and director, is a renowned screenwriter, confesses that he has given many turns to the format. “Precisely because I have worked a lot in the cinema, I am suspicious of the image in the theater. If there is a camera, the camera commands. And precisely what I like about the theater is that the image is not given, but is built on the viewer's head. So what I have tried the most to keep in my piece for this cycle is the metaphor, the invitation to the imagination ”, Remón explains.

Something similar happened to the playwright Lucía Carballal, who is also a screenwriter for film and television. “Until now I have always had theatrical and audiovisual language very far apart in my head. I think they are very different techniques and I have had a hard time mixing them. The truth is that until I see it from a distance, I will not know what I have done. What I can say is that my work begins in a hyper-realistic way, as any television series would, but then it evolves towards a more metaphorical language, "says Carballal.

The metaphorical dimension of the theater seems to be key. Sanzol also underlines it: “Unlike cinema, where the places where the scenes take place are literal, in the theater the space is always imaginary, clearly the actors are on a stage and we have to imagine that they are where they say they are. . That triggers the language and the possibilities of using the camera ”.

"How absurd! How stupid it is to give our soul to an empty theater! ” It was the first thing that the duo formed by Andrea Jiménez and Noemi Rodríguez thought when they received an offer from the CDN to write and direct a piece within this cycle. “But we soon realized that this contradiction revealed something wonderful: the empty theater is the mirror of what has happened to society in these months, the encounter that cannot happen. And the closed-door function is in some way the representation of what each person has experienced in their home during the confinement ”, reflects Jiménez. Rodríguez adds: "That is why perhaps a self-referential work has come out on the question of how to make theater in this new era, which in reality is the same thing that anyone in any field asks: how do we approach others now?" .

Denise Despeyroux, author of one of the three pieces that make up The Uncertainty, has also used metaphor and has used science fiction to write her piece. “During the confinement I have read and heard so many people (including philosophers that I admire) issuing sentences about what the future is going to be like from now on, that when I started writing I felt the need to distance myself. I think it is difficult to write about what has happened to us while still having it so close. Since the theater allows you to fly anywhere, I decided to place my work in another galaxy, ”says the playwright.

And how does an actress feel performing a play in front of an empty theater? Fernanda Orazi, one of the protagonists of The Shock, speaks: “I didn't think about it during rehearsals. I didn't realize it until the cameras started coming, so the previous work was the same as always. But the day we finally broadcast the show live, I couldn't imagine the viewers in their houses and I felt a kind of grief that emanated from the empty armchair patio. For me it was like giving the theater a mouth-to-mouth breath so that it lasts until we return. ”


Cirque du Soleil files for bankruptcy hit by pandemic

2020 June 30, Tuesday

The company carried a debt of 800 million euros. It will fire 3,480 employees, ask for protection against creditors, announce a restructuring and assure that it will return.

Cirque du Soleil files for bankruptcy hit by pandemic

Canadian company Cirque du Soleil, one of the largest and best-known entertainment companies in the world, filed for bankruptcy due to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 crisis. It will lay off 3,840 employees, 95% of its staff, will establish funds of $ 20 million (17.8 million euros) to compensate staff and contractors. It also faces suspension of payments.

However, Cirque du Soleil promises that this is not a definitive goodbye and that it intends "to rehire a substantial majority of the dismissed employees, when economic conditions allow, once the mandatory closings are canceled and can restart operations. "

Forced to cancel the 20 shows she had spread around the world since the start of the pandemic, she has been unable to resist the harshness of the devastating effects of inactivity. Among the 20 shows in progress, was the one dedicated to Leo Messi, 'Messi 10', which was on the bill in Argentina and which premiered last year in Barcelona.

The complicated financial situation was not new for the entertainment company, which the pandemic has taken on board. The company carried a debt of about 900 million dollars (800 million euros), as a result of the 2015 agreement valued at 1,500 million dollars (1,335 million euros) by which the American investment fund TPG took a majority stake of the company.

The company's stake is divided as follows: the investment fund TPG has 55%, Fosun controls 25% and the financial institution Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec, the remaining 20%.

The company clarifies that bankruptcy does not represent the end of Cirque du Soleil. In a statement, it announced that it has requested judicial protection against its creditors and that it has requested to restructure the company in order to return to business. This is what he says on social networks. "For now, our performances are stopped, but this is only an intermission. Soon the spotlights will return, illuminating the stage and sounding an echo of cheers, not only from the audience, but also from the stage. As we celebrate our return together. As sure as The sun rises every day, Cirque du Soleil will return, brighter than ever. "

A decision that makes it the first theater in the region and one of the first in Spain to raise the curtain after confinement. The activity of the Teatros del Canal will begin with the 'Madrid en Danza' festival, which this year celebrates its XXXV edition under the direction of the dancer and choreographer Aída Gómez.

A return, at the very least, poetic, since the Teatros del Canal were the last to lower the curtain. They endured, as the Regional Government's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Marta Rivera de la Cruz, recalled, "until the last moment," and "we always said that we would open as soon as possible." So it has been. De la Cruz assures that, for the return, it is essential to act with "responsibility on the part of all." Madrid's collaboration, patience and love to face this new stage. "

The delegate recognized that, with this, one enters "a terrain that we do not know", and the important thing is that the activity can return "with all possible guarantees". In this way, the reopening of the center will take place under strict safety and hygiene measures, through a protocol created for this purpose and that guarantees the safety of both the public and its workers. A protocol for the implementation of which the director of the Canal Theaters, Blanca Li, has been in contact with other European theaters, carefully following the proposals that have been made in this matter.

Among other measures, the use of masks inside the enclosure will be mandatory, the capacity will be reduced and the tickets will be in digital format. "The Canal Theaters will act as a laboratory in this era of post-COVID performing arts," said the counselor. "Everything we learn we will share, of course, with all the public and private theaters that demand it."

The GREC prepares an especially inclusive and Balearic edition

The GREC prepares an especially inclusive and Balearic edition

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, the Grec Festival in Barcelona reinforces its support for the Barcelona and Catalan artistic fabric with a program of some eighty shows especially focused on local creation, an inclusive character that translates into a reduced price, a commitment for new formats and a location especially focused on the Montjuïc mountain.

These are some of the decisions announced at a press conference by the Deputy Mayor for Culture, Education, Science and Community, Joan Subirats, and the Delegate for Cultural Rights, Dani Granados. Both have announced that the Grec Festival in Barcelona maintains its budget of 3.3 million euros, a figure that will serve to offer support to local companies and artists, to continue collaborating with city agents such as public and private theaters, producers or diverse cultural spaces, to present many productions that will be seen during the next theatrical season and, ultimately, to boost the sector at a particularly delicate moment.

At the Grec we will be able to see some fifty festival co-productions this year with local artists and companies, to which will be added fifteen shows from the current season that should have been staged these days but have had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis. The program completes a fortnight more shows from outside Catalonia.

Given the exceptional situation we are experiencing and its impact on domestic economies, the programmed shows will have a single price of 15 euros, which will be reduced to 5 euros in the case of family shows.

What spaces will the performances host when they take place physically? Mainly, the public stages that are located in the Montjuïc mountain, starting with a Teatre Grec that will reopen with the conditions set by the health authorities this summer.

Other publicly owned theaters on the Montjuïc mountain, specifically the Mercat de les Flors and the Teatre Lliure, will enable the larger rooms to host many of the shows that had originally been scheduled in smaller spaces. The Teatre Nacional de Catalunya will also host performances but also city museums such as the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, the Center de Cultura Contemporània, the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), the Born Center de Cultura i Memòria and the Museu Marítim de Barcelona, will become stages of the Grec, since they are venues that allow easy control of access and capacity.

Given the exceptional nature of the health crisis we are experiencing and the appearance of proposals that explore new stage formats, the Grec Festival in Barcelona will also offer online stage activities and experiences. Likewise, many of these proposals will become part of an archive that will guarantee their maximum dissemination.

If, in any case, some of the productions planned at the Grec could not be performed during July or August, they would integrate a new program, De Grec a Grec, which would allow them to be performed later in theaters and festivals, always with the label of Barcelona festival.

Finally, spectators are reminded that last Christmas they bought the festival's 2020 Gift Voucher that they can choose to exchange their voucher for tickets, as planned, or to refund the amount of the purchase. These viewers will soon receive an email at the email address they provided during the purchase process, with instructions on how to proceed in one case or another.

Performing arts from the sofa to celebrate World Theater Day 2020

Performing arts from the sofa to celebrate World Theater Day 2020

The theaters lowered the curtain, because it is time to stay at home, enjoy activities at home, books, movies, series ... in the company of family and neighbors.

This time can also be used to discover that culture forgotten by many, the one that in a few days celebrates a very particular and strange edition of its most international day. The World Theater Day and the performing arts in general.

For this Teatroteca, puts completely free more than 1,600 works, dances and shows through its platform. It is her way of opening the curtain again, of giving voice to the art of the stage and of making it reach our screens with a simple subscription.

This initiative was a complete success as the number of subscribers increased by 10% between Friday, March 13 and Sunday, 15, thus collapsing the platform and making it difficult to access.

More data that speaks of this success among the population is that since the curtain fell for a time, the request for works on this platform has tripled.

And yes, since nobody escapes them, these days they are going to fight. "We live a challenge as a society these days, yes, but that challenge is made up of millions of individual challenges, that is, the way in which each of us will face this crisis. And from that, from that struggle and from the individual in crisis , whether to overwhelm, make us laugh, sing or put our customs, greatness and misery before our eyes, the theater treats. An art by definition collective, on the other hand. For all this, at a time when we need each other so much The stage is an impressive source of vital and moral energy for everyone. "


Teatroteca was born as a research platform and has been open to the public since last year. It works as a library loan system: you register and "reserve" the work you want to see and to which you will have access for two days and then "return" it to the platform.

What if the video we want is already loaned to another user? That we will have to put ourselves on the waiting list until it is available again. In fact, given the high demand that the platform is registering, the CDAEM has proposed that users of this service return the borrowed titles as soon as they are seen, so that more viewers can access them.

Among the more than 1,600 pieces, not only adults will be served with great classics and recent works, but also the smallest of the house who will be able to enjoy puppet theater, musical works, staged tales, groundbreaking versions of traditional stories. , works based on the image with hardly any text ...

"On the main page of the Teatroteca we have created a section, Theater for Children, with some of these works. Among them are companies that have obtained the National Prize for Theater for Children and Youth, and great professionals of this genre. They are not only those seen on the main page, there are more in the catalog that is accessed through the search engine, "say Javier and Berta.

Performing arts from the sofa to celebrate World Theater Day 2020

Much is being said about children and little about adolescents. However, from CDAEM they have not forgotten them and have created a section called Theater for young people. "Young people between 12 and 14 years old can see stories represented on topics that interest them, both those that have been written expressly for them and those of the universal theater that interest us and affect all of us."

Because, as Javier and Berta emphasize, "seeing theater on the screen is a good way to get started in the knowledge of this art, fundamental in our culture, and also to reflect on human behavior. And also to have fun and laugh at us themselves, which after all is one of the fundamental elements of comedy (there are many comedies in this Theater, by the way) ".

Getting started in an art is very good and also laughing at yourself; but the theater goes further, the theater teaches us empathy, humanizes us. "It helps us understand the behavior of others and therefore humanizes us; it makes us smarter, more flexible, more permeable. It is very necessary in these times when fanaticism and rigidity appear where least expected. And Being familiar with this art since childhood is not a small thing, "they conclude.

In addition, the Documentation Center for the Performing Arts and Music has made available to users the digital magazines Figuras, Arriba el Telón and Don Galán where you can read interviews with different creators and managers of the performing arts.

World Theater Day 2020 message, by Shahid Nadeem

World Theater Day 2020 message, by Shahid Nadeem

The International Theater Institute (ITI) has released the World Theater Day Message for 2020, authored by award-winning Pakistani playwright Shahid Nadeem, founder and director of the Ajoka Theater.

Theater as a sanctuary

"At the end of a performance of Ajoka's play on the Sufi poet Bulleh Shah, an old man, accompanied by a boy, approached the actor who had played the role of the great Sufi." My grandson is not well, Could you bless him? "He said. The actor was shocked and replied," I am not Bulleh Shah, I am just an actor playing the part. "The old man then replied," Son, you are not an actor, you are a reincarnation of Bulleh Shah. , his Avatar.

Suddenly, we came up with a completely new concept of theater, where the actor becomes the reincarnation of the character he plays.

Exploring stories like Bulleh Shah's, stories like this exist in all cultures and can become a bridge between us theater creators and an unknown but enthusiastic audience.

While performing on stage, we sometimes let ourselves be carried away by our philosophy of theater, in our role as pioneers of social change we sometimes leave behind much of the community.

In our commitment to the challenges of the present, we deprive ourselves of the possibilities of a deeply moving spiritual experience that theater can provide.

In today's world where bigotry, hatred and violence are on the rise, our planet is sinking deeper and deeper into a climate catastrophe, we need to replenish our spiritual strength.

We need to fight against apathy, lethargy, pessimism, greed and contempt for the world we live in, for the planet we live on.

The theater has a role, a noble role, it must energize and advance humanity, help it to rise before it falls into an abyss.

The theater can turn the stage into a temple, the performance space, into something sacred. In South Asia, artists reverently touch the stage floor before stepping on it, an ancient tradition in which the spiritual and the cultural were intertwined.

It is time to recover that symbiotic relationship between the artist and the public, the past and the future. Making theater can be a sacred act and actors can become the avatars of the roles they play. "
