The Festival of Spanish Theatre of London (FeSTeLõn) returns to John Lyon’s Theatre, CityLit, from 11th June to 24th June 2018
For its sixth edition, FeSTeLõn brings a selection of incredible and varied Spanish theatre companies, including winners of Almagroff 2017, Jóvenes Clásicos, to the English capital. This will be the British debut for all participating productions. In addition to the normal two-week programme of plays, FeSTeLõn has also introduced ‘FeSTeLõn Kids’, a small selection of two plays created specifically with children in mind (suitable for 5+ years) in keeping with the Festival’s objective of making Spanish theatre accessible for all. Through Q+A sessions with the cast, workshops hosted by theatre professionals and the use of English surtitles throughout the festival, FeSTeLõn offers the opportunity for everyone, regardless of Spanish-speaking capabilities, to get involved with the best productions that Spanish theatre has to offer.
This year’s edition of the festival also sees the addition of ‘FeSTeLõn Off’, a mini fringe festival which aims to give space and visibility to amateur or emerging theatre companies and the chance to work with Spanish plays (both contemporary and from the Golden Age). The contest, which will take place on the 29th and 30th of September, is an excellent opportunity for theatre companies from around the world to gain better knowledge of Spanish theatre and to present their work to a panel of experts. The winners of FeSTeLõn Off will be invited to return to the festival in 2019 and perform.
FeSTeLõn 2018 promises to be an amazing festival and an incredible experience, don’t miss out! For further information please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website: www.festivalspanishtheatre.co.uk.
