The various small theatres in the city that have had to cancel their programmes for this year’s Grec Festival have got round this by putting together a joint virtual project with a focus on Latin America.
The project consists of an online platform and a web space in which each of the theatres will generate content and activities over the month of July as part of the Grec programme.
Audiences will be transported to Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay to meet the dramaturges, directors, companies, actors, and actresses who were programmed for the festival and whose shows have been postponed until the 20/21 season under the title “From Grec to Grec”.
By pre-registering for any of the events, if you’re interested you can take part in discussions on performance arts in Latin America today, discover how theatres are managed there, look at the impact theatre has on Cuban society, enjoy streamed readings, workshops and seminars, or watch documentary and audiovisual material via YouTube or Vimeo. In fact, more than 15 activities with which to enjoy Grec Festival from the comfort of your own home!
After years of collaborating on various cultural campaigns, Small Theatres have decided to work together under an actual label that highlights their particular set-up. Such theatres, where the seating is very close to the stage area, provide audiences with immersive experiences that make the visit unforgettable. Under the banner “Where Theatre Beats”, these theatres want to highlight such proximity as something that can awaken spectators’ senses, provide intense emotions, and make them feel alive.
salesdeproximitat.com is not just a webpage where you can find all the information on activities during Grec Festival online, but also the showcase for events and campaigns by all small theatres.
