Buenos Aires’ formerly biennial international theatre festival is now annual and returns during the height of the Porteño summer, taking place from January 22 to February 2! Dozens of Argentine and international productions will be staged at forty venues, including unconventional spaces in streets, squares and bars, in what is one of Latin America’s most important festivals of international contemporary theatre.
Launched in 1997, the festival will now be held every summer, featuring different genres, open-air performances, and awards the Germán Rozenmacher prize for new drama. Films, open talks with artists, workshops and masterclasses are also part of the festival.
Highlights of the 2019 edition included Tim Robbins’ The New Colossus, to be staged at the amphitheatre in Parque Centenario, Atlas des Kommunismus, a production from Berlin’s Maxim Gorki Theatre, at Teatro San Martín, and Daniel Abreu’s La Desnudez and a two-day public theatre marathon in the area around the Abasto in the Balvanera neighbourhood. The festival also incorporates Ciudanza, Buenos Aires’ festival of urban dance interventions, which in the 2020 edition will take place on January 24, 25 and 26.
