The 34th edition of the Community of Madrid’s Autumn to Spring Festival is back with a vengeance. Six months in which the show is guaranteed in the Spanish capital.
The great maestro of contemporary European theatre, Romeo Castellucci, is the chosen artist to open this performing arts encounter. His company, Socìetas, will premiere Go Down, Moses in Spain, a surprising proposal that explores the Book of Exodus in the Old Testament. It can be seen at the Canal Theatres from 13 to 15 October.
This latest edition also hosts the pieces by David Espinosa, Much Ado about Nothing and the artistic installation, The Sad Figure, both at the Canal Theatres. On the other hand, FC Bergman will visit Spain for the first time to present 300 el x 50 el x 30 el, a work praised by critics and defined as “disconcerting, eccentric and fun”.
The Madrid Students’ Residence will host its particular tribute to Federico García Lorca with the Reading Lorca recital, with free entry until the capacity is filled.
Working as director and actor, Rafael Spregelburd presents SPAM at the Canal Theatres, which has been acclaimed by international critics as “an ambitious, pretentious and complex play, which is precisely what makes it captivating and seductive”.
Guy Cassiers, one of Europe’s most innovative theatre creators, will bring a play based on the famous novel of the same name by Virginia Woolf, Orlando, which will be performed at the Canal Theatres.
