OCTOBER 20, 2021. 20:30H.
-Performance of: SOLO POR AMOR, by Compañía Teatral Chespir.
(Musical comedy in one act)
The famous Weismann Theater has just been sold to a construction company that plans to turn it into a parking lot. In the solitude of the stage, which once witnessed memorable nights, the old producer Dimitri Weissman has invited some prominent members of the company to bid them farewell. Reliving a bygone era, with New York City as an unchanging witness, will bring out all kinds of feelings: passions, philias, phobias and infidelities. An empty stage will witness the last performance. When the curtain falls for the last time, life will never be the way it was because it never was that way.

OCTOBER 21, 2021. 20:30H.
-Performance of: HEIFFEL, by SomoS.
Heiffel is a social denunciation in the key of humor, clown and with childish touches, where the Nepalese army, in a clear desire to dominate the world, advances on Paris. An encyclopedia salesman and a journalist set out on an adventure with the intention of defending the Eiffel Tower. But Eiffel is not the same as Heiffel, and that hache, which so few read and no one pronounces, will change their lives. Along the way, they will find an ideal partner to achieve their goal. Will they arrive in time to save the tower?

OCTOBER 22, 2021. 20:30H.
-Performance of: ÑAQUE O DE PIOJOS Y ACTORES, by Compañía Teatral Actúa7.
This play by José Sanchís Sinisterra focuses on the misadventures of Ríos and Solano, two miserable actors, members of an ñaque (theater company composed of only two actors) in 17th century Spain, who, through witty dialogues, walk their poverty and their talent along the roads of Castile.

Ríos and Solano doubt, feel, question themselves and question the audience in a dialogue that delves into their own condition as actors and the condition and role of the spectators in this encounter. But above all, Ríos and Solano act and constantly reflect on their condition as actors, questioning their existence and their feelings both on and off stage.

Basing the play on the text, they parade before the spectator loas, entremeses, autos, comedies and sayings of that other reality that was the popular and marginalized theater of the power of the sixteenth century. The action of the characters is directed to look for a sense to this concrete encounter and to remedy the oblivion of the public in a desperate attempt to continue existing in their consciences, once the curtain has come down.

(+14 years)

OCTOBER 23, 2021. 20:30H.
-Performance of: LA CASA DE BERNARDA ALBA, by Timaginas Teatro.
The version of Lorca’s play, La Casa de Bernarda Alba, that Timaginas Teatro will bring to the stage, will perfectly illustrate the time and place where the whole plot takes place. Taking care of all the details without exception, to create a claustrophobic atmosphere and extreme tension, which ends up drowning, not only the characters, but also everyone who is in front of the stage.

In collaboration with: Instituto Canario de Desarrollo Cultural, through the MARES program of the Government of the Canary Islands.

-Performance of: EL SUEÑO DE CÉSAR, by 2RC TEATRO.

Info: El Sueño de César, is a puppet show based on the figure of the Lanzarote artist César Manrique, from the adaptation of the original text by Antonio Daniel García Orellana, by Guaxara Baldassarre. El Sueño de César is a children’s play in which the characters travel through the artistic universe of the great Lanzarote painter and sculptor César Manrique.

“Everything began in a place called IMAGINATION…”.

Despite the threat of the diabolical titan Timanfaya to be wiped off the map, Tamboril and Lenguado, two sketches of Lanzarote’s imaginary, persuade the artist César Manrique to materialize pictorial works inspired by natural motifs of the island. Timanfaya does not entrust nature to man, but Manrique strives for a communion between the two.

(Recommended age: from 4 years old).

In collaboration with: Instituto Canario de Desarrollo Cultural, through the MARES program of the Government of the Canary Islands.
