FESTIVAL OF SPANISH THEATRE

The Festival of Spanish Theatre in London was launched four years ago with the aim of bringing well-established theatre companies from Spain to the UK.
 
All the plays will be presented in Spanish, with English surtitles during performances to reach a wider and more diverse audience.
 
We also organise parallel activities (in Spanish and English), such as seminars, conferences, workshops and Q&A sessions with the actors and directors involved in each Festival.
 
The Festival’s goal is to welcome everyone with an interest in Spanish theatre, culture and language.

 

Arizona
A play written by Juan Carlos Rubio, discusses frontiers, migration, human stupidity, and the extent to which humans can be manipulated.  The play is also a tragicomic portrait of the soul of two individuals lost in the desert of life.  The playwright invents a world of voids, of lacks of communication between human beings and between countries, a picture of the absurdity we invent day after day when we activate our intellectual borders.

Los Espejos de Don Quijote
The play is based on new research into the over-mythologised personality of the protagonist, Cervantes.  We know a few facts about Cervantes’ life, some odd pieces of the jigsaw, but these have not allowed us to build a complete and realistic picture of him.

This jigsaw, this story, is about the trajectory of Cervantes – now revealed in the play – and as such it should be considered as a piece of transformational art, as an act of rectification through art and culture.
