41st Badajoz International Theatre Festival

16Oct

The 41st edition of the Badajoz International Theatre Festival will be held from 24 October to 4 November at the Theatre López de Ayala. Like every year, this cultural event brings together a selection of both Spanish and foreign companies.

It maintains its international character with the presence of four proposals from the United Kingdom, Holland, France and Portugal: ‘Finding Joy’ by Vamos Theatre; the street show ‘The Yelling kitchen prince’; ‘Speakeasy’ by Compagnie The Ratpack and ‘Conchas’ Teatro D’Orfeu/ Marionetas Mandrágora.

The presence of companies from the region of Extremadura this year is special as El Avispero Producciones with ‘@Lone’ (“When the web traps you”) and Suripanta Teatro with ‘Caimanes’ premiere their productions in this edition. Albadulake will also be present with an innovative show, ‘Genoma B’, based on Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba  or the monologue offered by actor Pablo Bigeriego. This selection is closed by Panduro Producciones from Extremadura.

The little ones have a special section with two companies and two sessions on Sunday 28th October: ‘Conchas’ by Teatro D’Orfeu/ Marionetas Mandrágora (Portugal) and on Sunday 4 November ‘El reto de Zeus’ by Panduro Producciones.

For this forty-first edition the theatre has enabled a season ticket for 9 shows with which viewers will benefit from a saving of almost 50% on the price of the single ticket. More information:
