The 23rd Festival de Jerez 2019 begins

The Jerez Festival offers a wide and qualified display of the most genuine and significant artistic manifestation of this Andalusian city: flamenco. More specifically: dance is the story line of the Festival. With this thematic definition (flamenco dance and Spanish dance), the Festival de Jerez becomes a unique reference among the events of this type that take place in the world, without forgetting other disciplines such as singing and guitar.

The Festival makes a firm commitment to the creative evolution of flamenco, to the development of its expressive forms and to the modernization, from tradition, of its languages. The Festival encourages encounters and miscegenation, supporting the creative activity of artists determined to find new aesthetic and expressive paths for flamenco in the 21st century.

The Festival is not exclusively planned as a broadcasting program, but also hosts training events, support for creation and an encounter with other arts. The more than 40 courses and workshops, with students from more than 30 countries, highlight the international dimension of the sample.

The Festival, since its inception, has contributed to the development of a cultural industry around flamenco and has strengthened the tourist and service sector in the city of Jerez.

The Festival also means a wake-up call about Jerez as a city of flamenco, making its activities be distributed in addition to the Villamarta Theater through public spaces and unique buildings.

You can view and download the show programs that will take place from today, February 22, until March 9, 2019.

FIT 2018

The XXXIII edition of the Ibero-American Theater Festival of Cádiz (FIT) will kick off on October 19, giving room to a total of 36 performances by 23 international companies, until the 27th in different spaces in the city of Cádiz . The FIT will have the spaces that are traditionally linked to the festival such as the Falla Theater, the Central Lechera Room, the Tía Norica Puppet Theater and, as a novelty, the Pay Pay theater café. There will also be shows in the Plaza de las Flores, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de Mina and Falla itself.

The new space of the FIT in 2018, the Pay Pay, will host during the first two days of the festival (October 19 and 20) the Mexican group of César Enríquez Cabaret with La prietty guoman. And from October 22 to 24, this same place will be the stage to review the fragments of the best Cadiz shows under the name of FITetú. The Dominican company Casa de Teatro will be the last to be on Pay Pay on the 25th and 26th with its show "Mal de amores". All performances will begin at eleven o'clock at night.

In this new edition, the Ibero-American Theater Festival will feature consolidated and emerging companies from eight countries such as Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, the United States, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Spain, which will bring to Cádiz high-quality and newly created proposals , including the revision of texts by great authors, covering proposals that include gender, political and social and recreational issues, and where the theatrical representation is diluted -as in previous editions- with other contemporary artistic aspects such as flamenco, theater-circus, dance or music.

Precisely gender equality will be found in a total of eleven shows from five different countries (Argentina, El Salvador, Mexico, Argentine Republic and Spain), with dance being present in representations through national groups and from Argentina and the Dominican Republic , which will mix this genre with break dance and flamenco.

On Friday, October 19, the programming will start at the Gran Teatro Falla, which will host five companies during the FIT, four of which are from Spain and one from the Dominican Republic.

The first Film Festival of 2018 took place on May 7, 8 and 9, with a successful influx because it coincided in the cinema with great premieres such as Avengers: Infinity War, Champions or A quiet place, which were the films more views. Now, the second arrival of cheap cinema will take place in October, and with some great releases.

It will be necessary to register for the offer, already open, and until October 3, although as has happened on previous occasions, some cinemas do not even ask for accreditation and put the price of admission to 2.90 euros to speed up the queues. According to the conditions, those under 14 years old and those over 60 will not have to show any type of accreditation to receive the discount.

Johnny English: Back in Action, The Kingdom or A Little Favor: The Most Interesting Films

On those dates, films such as Johnny English: Again in Action, ALPHA, Book club, The Ted Kennedy scandal, Pope Francis - A man of his word, The Rider, El Capitan, Futbolísimos, Girl, Happy end, will be in theaters. Christopher Robin, The nun, A small favor, I love dogs, The desert bride, The Incredibles 2, Oreina, Searching, Teen titans go !, Everyone knows, Hell fest, In love with my wife, Yucatan, Predator or The kingdom (by Rodrigo Sorogoyen).

In Christopher Robin, Ewan McGregor will take us to the world of Winnie the Pooh.

In A Small Favor, Paul Feig directs a comedy starring actresses Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, where the latter will investigate the disappearance of the former in a small town.

Johnny English: Back in Action will be a great contender for the most viewed film, as previous films in this comedy series have enjoyed massive popularity for their hilarious humor. We leave you the trailer for this third installment of the saga.

The quality of many of these films will bring many people to theaters. Of course, it will be difficult to replicate the success of the previous Film Festival, where around 1.65 million people attended theaters in the three days, a figure similar to that of October 2017.

An invitation to experience the theater festival in Olite

An invitation to experience the theater festival in Olite

Navarra will once again host a theater party this summer. Between July 20 and August 4, the nineteenth edition of the Olite Theater Festival will be held, the second with artistic direction by Luis F. Jiménez, also responsible for the Don Quijote Festival in Paris. This edition proposes a contemporary review of classics such as Shakespeare, Cervantes, Molière, Calderón or Valle-Inclán, by some of the most prominent playwrights and directors on the current scene.

With the impulse of this festival, the General Directorate of Culture renews its determined support to the professionals of the Navarrese sector. An objective that also motivates other actions and initiatives framed in the Theater Promotion Plan developed by the Government of Navarra. Thus, En Rumbo Teatro will open the edition with the concert Bandada de rock y versos. Olite will also host the play Gris / Mar, with Ion Iráizoz and Mikele Urroz, which emerged within the framework of the 2017 edition. And within the theatrical Poetics cycle, the premiere of four pieces created by artists and companies from Navarra such as Montse Zabalza , Peio Otano, Iralei Teatro, La Nave Teatro and Atikus.

Once again, the Olite Theater Festival will offer a professional company from Navarra the possibility of participating in an artistic residency and research laboratory to start a new production. In addition, the actors and actresses are invited to two workshops on interpretation that will be given by José Tomé and Alfonso Zurro. For its part, the School of Theater of Navarra will present at the Tafalla Cultural Center the end-of-year project: I threw my heart to fry in Angélica Lidell's frying pan. And the festival will once again invite the residents of Olite to participate in two street plays: Negua, a show that will feature the Olite Rural Carnival; and Neighborhoods.

The festival will also feature outstanding proposals at the state level, by the National Classical Theater Company, Nao d'amores, Lauretzi Producciones or the Classic Theater of Seville. And, above all, in this edition Olite will have an international accent. In addition to Los Colochos de México and Teatro Indigo de Argentina, France is added, with the works Arlequin poli par l'amour and Tartufo, el impostor, in addition to the presence of the Escuela Superior de Teatro de Bordeaux Aquitania.

A feminist and sonorous allegation triumphs at the Almagro Classical Theater Festival

Monday, July 9, 2018

A feminist and sonorous allegation triumphs at the Almagro Classical Theater Festival

The feminist allegation of the writer María de Zayas, in the version of Nando López, has triumphed this Friday during its premiere at the International Festival of Classic Theater of Almagro, getting the Corral de Comedias to provide the actors and their director, Ainhoa ​​Amestoy, a long ovation with the audience on their feet.

"This time may not be yours or mine." With this visionary phrase written more than four centuries ago and compiled now by López, we could summarize the show that Amestoy has brought this year to the Almagreño drama contest and with which he has managed not only to hang the "no tickets" sign but also to conquer an audience that laughs, gets excited and even gets angry during the play.

Terms that four centuries ago were unthinkable such as mansplainig, sisterhood or patriarchy and that already appear in the novel by this writer, undoubtedly ahead of her time and that are reflected in fragments such as "there are several ignorant, that as if women They will take away the understanding for having him, they are consumed by the successes of others ".

In a fun, emotional and exciting proposal, agile and with very deep reflections, Ainhoa ​​Amestoy uses this text to touch on issues as deep as homosexuality, freedom and honor as a throwing weapon against women, female infidelity, the revenge of the woman or the contempt of anything of an intellectual nature done with women.

It is a very choral work, in which none of the actors shines above the other because they all do it from the moment they step on stage and are capable of maintaining an "incredible" height in all the dialogues, be it the more intellectual of Nise (Silvia de Pé); Octavio, a 'Don Juan' who seems to only think about one thing but who shows his human quality (Manuel Moya); Beatriz, the woman who hides a terrible secret and who uncovers the box of truths on a night of involuntary confinement (Lidia Navarro); and Manuel, the man who is unable to reveal his feelings but his nobility (Ernesto Arias).

And all this underlined by a successful sound space reconstructed by David Velasco that not only accentuates the action, but is also capable of moving the viewer in time and space, in addition to making them pass through the different emotional states of the characters.

The work, in which the battle of the sexes or mistreatment also appears, leaves for the viewer reflections such as that "the only truth is that I am not looking for an owner but a companion" or that "true love is in the soul, not in the body"; and that "loving the body with the body, cannot say that it is love, but appetite", questions that the spectator will be able to pose at the Corral de Comedias until Sunday, after which they will travel throughout the country including the Theater of the Madrid comedy in April of next year.

Love disappointments

Based on texts by María de Zayas y Sotomayor _ Nando López version_ Directed by Ainhoa Amestoy

Love disappointments - FIT Clásico de Almagro 2018

What happens when two seventeenth-century women take the floor and show their strongest and proudest side? And what if we dared to imitate them and bare our emotions? These are some of the questions posed by this acidic and, at the same time, thoughtful comedy, written by Nando López based on María de Zayas's Desengaños amoros and with which we at Estival Producciones have wanted to vindicate this author and transfer her modern look at the prism of contemporaneity. Four rebellious and complex protagonists will meet on stage: two women and two men who, victims of a confinement through no fault of their own, will have to share secrets, wishes and even a murder in the middle of a night on which it depends, if they know how to play their cards well, their whole future.
