It will be La Herradura Teatro, which was already on the boards of the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater on November 21 with 'We are up to ... ¡¡¡', the group in charge of closing the curtain of an Exhibition that, without the possibility of fill the auditorium as in previous years, has registered 1308 spectators in the sixteen performances represented so far, averaging close to one hundred spectators per appointment.

This time, the group, led by Pedro Sanz, will perform from 19:00 p.m. 'Baby a la carte', a play in which sixteen people are involved, including performers and technical team, and which is a true reflection of what could happen in any meeting of friends from school who decide to meet again years later. After a long time without seeing each other and having become mature women, throughout the meeting the friends will share their problems and frustrations, among which the fact that they have not yet been mothers stands out.

Showcasing humor, like most groups that have participated in this Provincial Theater Show, La Herradura will let its protagonists decide that it is not yet too late to experience motherhood, but it will also show them that the process to achieve it will not be easy. With baby or without baby, with the applause for the farmer group, an exhibition in which a total of twelve groups have participated representing seventeen functions, among which comedy has predominated and in which, once again, the Classic and contemporary scripts have interspersed their presence on the stage of the most important stage in the province.

The Cárcel_Segovia Creation Center will host a new edition of SegoJazz between December 8 and 13. The nineteenth appointment of this initiative returns to delight the public with the swing of three great artists and groups, the singer Yoio Cuesta, Pedro Ojesto Trío with Román Filiu and Bestiario, who will perform on the 11th, 12th and 13th, in the Sala Julio Michel.

The SegoJazz poster draws on interesting musical fusions to show the complexity and richness of this musical style born at the end of the 11th century, but does not forget the more traditional jazz rhythms. In fact, on Friday, December XNUMX, one of the most recognized jazz singers in our country, Yoio Cuesta, will present 'Hablando de ella', a jazz repertoire of all time, sung in Spanish. His voice becomes the common thread of a proposal with Latin airs and a very refined jazz. For this work he has the collaboration of the pianists Jacob Sureda and Jorge Vera in the arrangements; and a sextet made up of great musicians from the current jazz scene in Spain.

On Saturday, December 12, SegoJazz continues with a proposal that mixes jazz, flamenco and a special touch of Cuban influence. Pedro Ojesto, one of the icons of the fusion of jazz with flamenco, presents this project with the Cuban saxophonist based in New York, Román Filiu. Along with Ojesto's piano, Josemi Garzón's double bass and Fernando Favier's drums will share the stage.

The concert cycle ends on Sunday, December 13, with a symbiosis between jazz, fusion music and poetry, by the hand of Bestiario. The band has established itself as a voice of its own within the youngest and most current jazz. Their sound takes references from the Mediterranean, American and African traditions and mixes them with the modernity of funk, rock and the avant-garde, in a fusion in which poetry is one more instrument. The quintet is made up of Jorge Moreno (trombone and ink), Belén Martín (alto sax), Alberto Molina (keyboards), Javier Santana (bass) and Adrián Alameda (drums).

All concerts will begin at 19:00 p.m. Due to the capacity restriction, the Department of Culture will broadcast the concerts in streaming in the Sala Ex.Presa 2 so that a greater number of public can enjoy this jazz proposal.

Tickets, now on sale, are priced at 7 euros for the Julio Michel Room and 3 euros for the Ex.Presa Room 2. Both can be purchased through and at the Visitor Reception Center .

The program is completed with participatory activities. All of them will be open to the public with an invitation that can be collected at the Visitor Reception Center.

On December 8 there will be a master class taught by Miguel López. The director of the Andalucía Big Band and professor at the Escuela Superior de Música del País Vasco will work on the style and language of the Big Bands together with the Segovians Let the Children Play Big Band. The appointment will begin at 16:00 p.m. After the master class, Let the Children Play Big Band will offer a microconcert at 20:30 p.m. with the topics covered during the afternoon.

On December 9 will be held the conference "Jazz here and now" by Segovian drummer Rodrigo Muñoz, who will make a personal and particular review of the most current national jazz and will analyze groups and artists in a colloquial and accessible way with examples to listen enjoy jazz. It will be from 19:00 p.m.

Finally, on December 10, it will be the turn for the jam session of Muñoz, Lechón and Xas.

The Provincial Theater Show reaches its final stretch this weekend, before saying goodbye on December 4 after nearly twenty performances. With Las Magas on stage to represent 'Women who count', tomorrow Thursday, November 26, the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater will open its curtain to a new series of functions that will be represented from Wednesday to Sunday at 19:00 p.m. .

One day after the commemoration of the Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the role of women in society will be scrutinized with a magnifying glass, but with humor, from the perspective of Las Magas, which in a script adapted by Ángela Almendariz They will tell different stories of women reflecting on today's world and how women cope with situations, depending on age and education.

Also with four women as protagonists, Catarsis Teatro -formed exclusively by men- will go up on Friday 27 at the Juan Bravo Theater with a work as enigmatic as the message that the group itself left a few months ago on its social networks: "José Rosario Antúnez Valdivieso He died on Thursday XX of XX of 19XX at 8X years of age./ DEP / His wife Nazaria, political sisters Daría and Aurori and their maid Ulpiana will appreciate the attendance at the wake that will take place on November 27 at the Juan Bravo theater in Segovia Likewise, they beg that they turn off their mobile phones and keep the silence and decorum that such an act implies. " Thus, whoever wants to decipher the continent of the obituary must attend the wake and discover what this contemporary comic farce entitled 'Atra bilis (when we are calmer ...)', whose author is the contemporary playwright Laia Ripoll, is buried.

The funeral of José Rosario Antúnez will give way on Saturday to political debate, the questioning of tradition and the acceptance of coexistence and respect between people. Under these premises, 'A zero to the left' will present before the public a middle-class family that, in full democratic transition, receives the father after a long time in prison. With humor as the predominant note, the man will have to learn to live together, bearing in mind that neither his family nor his country are what they were.

Finally, to close Sunday, the Zereia group, which was forced to cancel its performance of 'The Women's League' on the 6th, will be able to make its work known to the public through the play 'The Product' , directed by Fernando Cárdaba, which shows, through exaggeration and sarcasm, a Manichean version of a certain way of arriving at politics away from good practice. The representation is divided into two parts and, while the first shows a crazy way of preparing the candidacy for the elections, the second shows an already consolidated politics receiving the visit of the devil and his temptations.

With these four functions the Provincial Show will only have one more appointment; the next Friday, December 4, with the participation of La Herradura Teatro and its piece 'Baby a la carte', whose tickets, like those of the rest of the Show, can be purchased for 4 euros at the Juan box office Bravo and on the Tickentradas platform.

This document will detail how to preserve the Outstanding Universal Value that made Segovia worthy of this international recognition. To this end, the involvement of socioeconomic agents and the general public will be sought, as a benchmark in sustainable and integrated development.

This plan is the operational instrument that guarantees the adequate protection, conservation and management of World Heritage, as stated repeatedly in doctrine and regulations, beyond the legal obligation to have a Management Plan, determined by the obligation to comply with the World Heritage Convention and other international documents, letters and recommendations.

After a short but intense week of the Provincial Show with performances by Tempus Gaudi and Rodina, the amateur theater cycle returns this week to the stage of the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater with four works in which, once again, comedy will be the common denominator of all, except for the one represented by Los Mirmidones, which once again will bet on the Greek tragedy.

'This Sunday there is no cinema' will be the piece that, with La Alborada de Hontoria as the protagonist, inaugurates the laugh therapy between the theater seats. Starting at 19:00 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, November 19, the members of the company, which has already performed 'Cada mochuelo a su olivo' in this Show, will return after eleven days to the stage to represent a work by Jaime Salom which, adapted and directed by Rufino Bravo, presents the daughter of a mayor who is enthusiastic about the theater. Seeing that the company that she has hired to perform in the town suffers a bus accident and cannot arrive at the time of the performance, she is delighted to be the one who performs in front of the town.

After the laughs on Thursday, on Friday the 20th he will get serious with Los Mirmidones and their version of Eurípides's 'Troyanas'. This piece, which a few years ago brought Aitana Sánchez Gijón, Alba Flores or Maggie Civantos to the Juan Bravo stage, tells how, after the destruction of Troy, women have been taken prisoner and are being taken to Greece to be slaves . Cassandra, Andromache and Helen, daughters of the King of Troy, Priamo, and his wife Hecuba are the reflection of the humiliation, slavery and destruction of an entire people.


Those problems of Greece in 400 BC have little to do with those of today and, therefore, La Herradura Teatro will return the Juan Bravo audience to reality on Saturday 21 through an apparently incomplete but explicit title: 'We are until the ...!!!'. The text, written by José A. Martínez, shows the problems and concerns of young people with an ironic and hooligan tone. Friendship, love and the uncertainty of the future sneak into a work that, directed by Pedro Sanz, has a team made up of about twenty people; many of them young with a love for the theater.

Finally, on Sunday the 22nd it will also be the turn of Y Now Q ?, who opened the Show on October 29 with 'Mamaaá' and this time they will close the week with 'Terapia', a work in which Rafa González once again plays the in front of it, sharing the limelight with Izán de la Gándara. The script by Martín Giner raises, appealing to humor, the question of who is the madman in a society in which, for people to be accepted, they must think, say and act in the expected way and abide by the pre-established models.

All the works scheduled within the Provincial Theater Show begin at 19:00 p.m. and have a single entry price of 4 euros that can be purchased, both at the Theater box office and on the Tickentradas platform. Both routes are also, starting today, Wednesday, November 18, the channels to purchase tickets for the shows scheduled from December 1 to 18. And it is that, as the spectators of the Juan Bravo Theater will remember, the Directorate of the scenic space and the Provincial Council established, due to the current uncertainty, a ticket sales system by which the seats will be sold approximately for fortnights. Thus, from today you can buy tickets for the Ray Gelato & The Giants concert on December 5, 'La isla', scheduled on December 6, 'Caravan, la historia de María y Manuel' on December 8 , 'E-book 2.0' on December 11, 'Blood Wedding' on December 13 and 'El Tesoro de Barracuda' on December 18. For the shows scheduled from December 19 to December 31, the sale will begin on December 9.

The eleventh edition of the Oenological Autumn of the Caja Rural Foundation reinvents itself with a new format, with wines and Segovian companies as protagonists. "We believe that now it is more necessary than ever to support the hotel industry, wineries, winegrowers, and all companies in the Segovia and province sector," explained the Foundation's manager, Beatriz Serrano, yesterday at the presentation of this gastronomic cycle, in a different setting, at the foot of the Aqueduct.

From today until December 13, the 'Oenological Autumn at Home' will take place, a proposal that will bring Segovian wines to any point of the peninsula in less than 48 hours. A sales platform has been designed on the website, in which lots will be offered with very attractive discounts of up to 60%. Blancos de Segovia, Corazón de Valtiendas, Singulares de Segovia, Selección El Decantador, Cava, Champagne and Alma Carraovejas are the seven collections of wine that will be sent for a month to any point in Spain, with prices from 23,75 euros per batch to 227,29 euros. The selected wineries are: Pago de Carraovejas, Avelino Vegas, García Serrano, Malaparte, Severino Sanz, Finca Cárdaba, 921, Vagal, Pago El Almendro and Navaltallar. The objective is twofold: on the one hand, to promote Segovian wines throughout Spain and, on the other, to boost sales, at a difficult time for wineries and companies in the sector.

Although the stoves were ready so that, starting this Friday, you could enjoy the different pairings in Segovian restaurants, the closure of the hotel industry has forced the postponement of the most social and appetizing proposal of the Oenological Autumn. "This year, more than ever, we are going to be next to our hoteliers and, the same day that the restaurant doors open, it will be possible to reserve a table to enjoy the exquisite proposals of the Oenological Autumn", said Beatriz Serrano .

To ensure safety and compliance with all sanitary measures, the capacity will be very low and, in order to allow everyone to enjoy this experience, the restaurants will serve the pairings for a few weeks from the opening day. The proposals are very varied, from informal tapas dinners to long tasting menus with more than seven passes.

For yet another year, the Pago de Carraovejas Estate and Winery and the Ambivium Restaurant offer a solidarity proposal. This time they exclusively present a collection of six bottles that can only be purchased through the Autumn Oenological sales portal.

A different Autumn begins, but with the best wines of the province within the reach of the citizen.

Thus, at 19:00 p.m. tomorrow Saturday, November 14, the curtain will open for Tempus Gaudi to change the Juglarín's tales for 'Two bushels of laughter', a composition of the adaptation of the sainetes' Sancho Panza in the insula Barataria 'and' Farsa y Justicia del Corregidor ', written by Alejandro Casona. Again relying on the texts of the playwright of the Generation of 27 and again under the direction of Ángel Gómez, a team made up of fourteen people will make the public laugh at the Juan Bravo with an amusing criticism of the social customs of life at the end of the XNUMXth century and the first half of the XNUMXth, in which, in addition, the weak end up imposing the powerful in an act of theatrical justice.

With regard to the afternoon of Sunday 15, whose performance will also begin at 19:00 p.m., it will have a less comic and more reflective and mythological character. Thanks to the various stories inspired by Bulgarian literature and folklore, from ancient times to the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, the Rodina group will give meaning to the title 'Ot Izvora' ('From the source' in Spanish) representing the values ​​of those who drink the fountain of humanity.

The group, which every year tries to teach the Juan Bravo audience the customs of their country through the performing arts, will show through different characters the spirit of the Bulgarian woman with regard to faith and traditions. A team of more than a dozen interpreters and two technicians, led by Veselina Marinova, will make music, dance and theater the perfect combination for the transmission of a culture that is highly integrated into Segovian life.

The Show, which this weekend reaches its equator, will continue next week with performances by La Alborada de Hontoria, Los Mirmidones, La Herradura Teatro and Y Now Q?

Culture continues to be promoted in various formats and projects from the Provincial Council, which has proposed to convey to the public the message that a safe culture is possible and that, despite the fact that there are programs that for obvious reasons cannot get ahead in full pandemic, there are many others that can be carried out with caution and responsibility. This is the case of the Provincial Theater Show, which, after readjusting its schedule after the declaration of the Curfew and the new State of Alarm and bringing all its functions forward to 19:00 p.m., will again fill the Juan Theater program Bravo de la Diputación during the month of November with a reduced capacity, being the scene of the best amateur theater in the province.

The Exhibition, which was presented this morning by the deputy for Culture, Youth and Sports, José María Bravo, and by Rafael González, a member of the group Y Now Q? will start on October 29 with this same group, one of the veterans of the theatrical cycle, which will once again perform on the Juan Bravo stage - as it did a couple of years ago - the play 'Mamaaá'. And it is that, as the deputy has explained, the health crisis that still affects normality, will let its consequences be felt in several ways in this twenty-third edition: first, in their seats, which they will not be able to see one of those full those they are used to, and secondly in their representations, which will not necessarily be unpublished and may have appeared on previous posters of the Show. "We are aware of the special circumstances that have surrounded this edition and we know that the groups, in most cases, have not been able to bring their members together as they should to prepare a play in conditions," said Bravo, who, In any case, he thanked the twelve groups participating in this edition for their efforts, both for the seven that will present a new production and for those who have chosen to rescue a piece already performed in previous years. 

In addition, the vice president of the Diputación also wanted to dedicate a few words of appreciation and affection towards the members of Nuevos Horizontes de Fundación Personas, who in principle had a performance scheduled, but finally, due to the added complications that the setting has on stage of their representation, they have chosen to postpone their participation to the next edition. "We will miss them, since they are also fixed in the programming of each year and with their functions they show us that the Provincial Show is, in addition, an inclusive project in which all the people of the province interested in the performing arts have a place "said José María Bravo.

Among the groups that will finally occupy the eighteen appointments reserved from Thursday to Sunday for the Show are veterans -with at least eighteen participations each- Candilejas and La Herradura; Although this group is presented with a group of young actors who have never participated in The Show and who will debut on November 21 with 'We are up to ... ¡¡¡' and will return to the Juan Bravo stage to close the Show on December 4 with 'Baby a la carte'.

They will not, however, be the only group to play twice in this twenty-third edition, since Los Mirmidones, Tempus Gaudii, Zereia, Y Ahora Q? and La Alborada de Hontoria will also double their presence on the stage of the Theater with works in which comedy will prevail and that are signed, both by well-known playwrights from different times such as Plauto, Alejandro Casona, or Alberto Miralles, as well as by the members of the amateur theater groups of the province.

Mandala Theater with 'Matchit @ s', Get in Line with' El cadaver del Señor García ', Rodina with the piece with Bulgarian roots' Ot Izvora', Las Magas with 'Mujeres que nosotros' and Catharsis with' ATRA BILIS (When Let's be more calm ...) 'complete the poster of an edition whose tickets will not vary in price compared to recent years, and can be purchased for 4 euros both at the Theater box office and at Tickentradas. "We hope that, as far as possible, the Theater will be filled again to applaud these amateur performers, who in each new edition prove to be more professional", José María Bravo has wished after recalling that, since August, some of the components of these amateur theater groups in the province are participating in the acting courses taught by Sergio Mínguez, director of Ponte a la Cola, and promoted by the Provincial Council in response to the requests made by the groups participating in the Show Provincial Theater.

The Provincial Council continues to support the programs that guarantee a safe culture and, as it has done in previous years, will once again collaborate with 'Enclave Multicultural', the proposal that combines theater, magic, stories and clown shows in the northeast of the province and that allows the smallest neighbors of Cerezo de Abajo, Grajera, Prádena and Riaza, as well as all the nearby municipalities, to have the possibility of enjoying the performing arts a few meters from their home.

Local consumption goes through difficult times in all the localities of the national territory, be they cities or rural municipalities, but the latter have greater handicaps that make producers reinvent themselves.

That is what they are doing from the Center for Tourism Initiatives (CIT) of Cuéllar, a group of merchants, producers and entrepreneurs that for months has been working to boost the town and return it to its place in the economic and tourist field. Rubén Salamanca was appointed president and it is now when, after months of settlement, the first activities to be carried out from this nucleus begin to be seen.

The proposal is the First Christmas Fair of Local Products and Craftsmen of Cuéllar. It will take place at the Tenerías Center on November 6 and 7, Friday from 17.00:21.30 p.m. to 11.00:14.30 p.m. and Saturday from XNUMX:XNUMX a.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m. It aims to welcome all the producers, artisans and merchants of the town who have a lot to offer at any time of the year, but even more so now that certain dates are approaching.

The specific objective of the fair is to publicize the products that are produced and marketed in the town. The public to whom the fair is directed is from the private consumer to companies; The gifts and presents from these are brought to customers and workers, a good time to look at local production to support colleagues in the commercial fabric of the municipality.

The slogan of this first edition of the fair is "local consumption: your people win, you win." It directly refers to creating consumer awareness in the town, something that for years has been a struggle for merchants. The proximity to capitals and Internet consumption have made it increasingly difficult for local establishments to position themselves. However, these times left by the global pandemic seem to awaken the population and create that awareness that if the population consumes in their locality, the benefit is also for the neighborhood in general. It is about establishing the concept and that before consuming online, the possibilities in the municipality are contemplated, which has so much to show.

The CIT laid its foundations just before the pandemic was declared with a clear goal: to be the basis of associations, a reunification that, although it has a tourist purpose, can boost the local and regional economy. The movement of the Center for Tourism Initiatives begins, waiting for a pleasant response from the neighbors.

Fourteen hotel establishments, four of them in the province (Marugán, Real Sitio de San Ildefonso, El Espinar and El Arenal de Orejana), are part of the Route of Tapas, Peketapas and Cocktails in Segovia. The Industrial Association of Segovian Hoteliers (AIHS), which organizes this initiative, with the main sponsorship of Mahou and the collaboration, among others, of the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Segovian City Council and Prodestur from the Provincial Council, has set aside this year the competitive nature or contest to propose a tasting of elaborate gastronomic proposals around the figure of San Frutos.

The president and vice president of AIHS, Enrique Cañada and Jesús Castellanos, respectively, accompanied by Gina Aguiar, councilor for Culture and Tourism of Segovia, by Magdalena Rodríguez, provincial deputy delegate of Prodestur and Marco Antonio Figueroa, from Coca Cola, have presented this route gastronomic that will take place from tomorrow, Friday, the 16th until Monday, October 26, a public holiday in the capital.

The tapas proposals are very varied: some traditional, such as 'Lomo de la sierra with potatoes from the garden' to others that reinvent a traditional dish such as HRP 2020 (a crunchy cylinder of parmentier and minced meat on Valseca hummus and fried egg cream, an innovation from the fried egg with mincemeat), or the most sophisticated, of the type 'Boletus marmalade toast with balsamic reduction of dark chocolate'

Those responsible for the hospitality sector, who have been joined by the managing director of the group, Javier García Crespo, have insisted that this tasting route with a menu consisting of 18 tapas, 4 peketapas and 6 cocktails also included in Route II Royal Bliss, promoted by Coca Cola, is an invitation to Segovians and visitors "to go out and visit the hospitality establishments, also creating synergies between those in the capital and those in the province."
One of the objectives is to remove the fear of tasting tapas inside bars and restaurants, in a bar or dining room, in order to energize the city, the province and ultimately the local economy.

Castellanos, who from AIHS leads the delegation of bars and restaurants, has insisted that the hotel industry in Segovia is among those that in the whole of Spain is better facing the pandemic situation in terms of security. In this sense, he affirmed that the statistical information from the health authorities indicates that in the province "I do not know if I dare to say that no outbreak but practically none is linked to the hotel industry."

Small tapas

Those responsible for the Association of Hoteliers affirm that the sector scrupulously complies with one of the protocols, established by the health authorities, more stringent in Europe. They remember, for example, compliance with the gauges and the safety distance inside establishments, in addition to cleaning and disinfection measures, use of masks, hydroalcoholic gels, special mats, cleaning tables in each use with approved products, etc.

They also point out that the hospitality industry "is being the paganini" of the pandemic, "the one that pays for the broken dishes, when in places where very restrictive measures have been established - Catalonia yesterday - there are still outbreaks."

The Provincial Council continues to bet on promoting a safe culture and this afternoon, together with the Esteban Vicente Museum of Contemporary Art, will inaugurate, with an act that will be broadcast live, starting at 19:00 p.m., through the web and networks social, the exhibition 'De lo ineffable. Esteban Vicente seen by Patricia Azcárate ', which, sponsored by the provincial institution, starts the project' Esteban Vicente seen by ... '. This initiative, which aims to be projected in time, as stated by the president of the provincial institution and president of the Museum Consortium, Miguel Ángel de Vicente, in the presentation to the media, which took place this morning, is about Relate and reinterpret the work of the artist from Turega with that of a guest artist from Segovia, whose work has points of convergence with the artistic thought of Esteban Vicente himself.

One of the reasons that make Patricia Azcárate, from Madrid living in Segovia for nearly three decades, the ideal artist to start this project is possibly the relationship that both have with nature and the landscape that surrounds them as a creative stimulus. Furthermore, as Ana Doldán, director of the Museum explains, in the presentation of the catalog of the exhibition, both Esteban Vicente and Patricia Azcárate "create out of an innate need to discover something; out of an internal search impulse in which the forms are they find them somewhere and the artist travels internally towards them to capture and express them through his work ", something that is reflected in an exhibition that respectfully relates color, shape and texture to each other. Not in vain, Miguel Ángel de Vicente thanked Patricia Azcárate, and in reference to this respectful bond, "her courage for accepting the challenge with such fidelity, not only towards Vicente, but towards herself" and congratulated her for "the subtle way of relating his work with that of Esteban Vicente, allowing an open, not forced reading of both languages ​​".

Along three defined spaces, 'De lo ineffable. Esteban Vicente seen by Patricia Azcárate ', presents a collection of fifty-five works -thirty-seven by Azcárate and eighteen by Esteban Vicente- that, not because they are interrelated and based on a reinterpretation, lose originality.

In a first space dedicated to painting, in which the small layers that create the composition of Patricia Azcárate's works recall, in the way of Vicente, light, color and freedom, the microscopic world, the aquatic world and the Vegetables give way and play in a space described by Ana Doldán as "dreamy", before the viewer enters the seclusion of the installation 'Habitar la luz'. This, which in the opinion of the director of the Museum and curator of the exhibition is "perhaps, the most suggestive and suggestive work of the exhibition for all that is hidden in it", has the sound of the composer Ramón González-Arroyo as an ally , through the musical piece 'Toiles en lumière', configuring, together with twelve canvases painted by Azcárate, the special scenography of the installation.

Finally, the exhibition, which can be visited for free until January 31, 2021 following health security measures, presents a space dedicated to a series of graphic improvisations in charcoal that dialogue with the black and white drawings of Esteban Vicente made in the seventies.

For Miguel Ángel de Vicente, who recalled during the presentation press conference that there have been many occasions in which the Museum has shown the work of Esteban Vicente in dialogue with that of other artists, but never with a current artist, in full stage of maturity and also linked to our environment, "proposals of this type favor new readings necessary for the enrichment of artists and, at the same time, are a reflection of the strong support of the Provincial Council for culture and the development of the plastic arts" .

After an intense month of September, with the celebration of the great festival of the Virgen del Henar and El Henarillo, the sanctuary is now preparing to face other initiatives in which it will try to enhance it as the Marian place that it is.

Although the past has been a very atypical summer due mainly to the health crisis and the impossibility of celebrating the Virgin's procession, among other issues, it has also been full of news, such as the arrival of the Samaritan Sisters of the Heart of Jesus, who since July they have been in charge of the place, after the departure of the Carmelite Fathers who for almost a century have been in charge of its management; and that of the new rector, Carlos García. All of them faced the Henar festivities with great enthusiasm and, despite the uncertainty about the coming months, they are already preparing new projects.

This was announced by the rector, pointing out that next year marks the fourth centenary of the granting of the festival of Our Lady of Henar. It was on August 9, 1621 when Pope Gregory XV granted the celebration of an annual festival in honor of the Virgen del Henar for the Sunday closest to San Mateo, onomastics that is celebrated every September 21. With this, various indulgences were also granted, some perpetual, such as plenary, from the first vespers until sunset of the festival, and others temporary.

The definitive setting of the date of the pilgrimage for the Sunday before the day of San Mateo was decided in the year 1849 and even today it remains so on the calendar. The feast of the Virgin begins to be celebrated a few days before, with the development of the morning and evening novena. The day before the festival the Rosary of the Torches is celebrated, which fills the meadow and the surroundings of the Sanctuary with candles, while on Sunday, the central day of the festival, the campaign mass is held presided over by the image of The Virgin followed by the procession through the meadow, acts that this year have not been carried out due to the covid-19 pandemic. "It's 400 years, something has to be done," says the rector of the sanctuary, pointing out that the Holy See is going to be asked to develop a jubilee year, an issue that is already being worked on.

It is not the only project, since in 2022 the 50th anniversary of the canonical coronation of the image of the Virgin will take place. "Very considerable challenges await us and there we would like to involve the entire region," says García, pointing first to the diocese of Segovia, "which will be fully committed", but also to the rest of the dioceses of Castilla y León, since the Virgin of the Henar counts on numerous faithful in all the points of the community; and even the civil authorities. "I think that it will be something that will also greatly encourage that Spain emptied of our peoples," said the rector.

The initiative and the development of both the jubilee year and the celebration of the canonical coronation can also be a promotion for the entire region, so "we are very excited to move it," said the rector, pointing out that both the community of sisters Carmelites of the Heart of Jesus like him are clear that they want to be in a line of continuity with what has been done in recent years by the Carmelite Fathers. García thanked the Carmelites for their work, assuring that they are missed in the sanctuary and that "on our part there is great affection and gratitude towards them," also noting that they do not intend to carry out new actions, but rather to place themselves in a line of continuity and evolution, "to follow what they too would have done if they had stayed here in the sanctuary."

The canonical coronation of the image of the Virgin of El Henar took place on June 25, 1972, in a solemn ceremony that was held in the prairie of the Sanctuary and which had the participation of some 50.000 people, according to the Carmelite Father Balbino. Velasco in one of his writings. The image was crowned by the Archbishop of Valladolid, Félix Romero Menjíbar, who was accompanied by several bishops from neighboring dioceses and more than a hundred priests who concelebrated the act.

Marian shrine
Among the next projects, it is to be found to give much prominence to the festivities of the Virgin, as a Marian sanctuary that is Henar and thus continue "little by little in that line of continuity.

Since their arrival last summer, both the Samaritan Carmelites and the rector have felt very welcomed by the devout community of Our Lady. Now, they will try to revitalize the sanctuary “because it is true that the Henar offers many possibilities. It has a spiritual and cultural potential of the first order, "said García, highlighting that the Virgen del Henar, also called the Flower of Castilla, is the most influential Marian sanctuary in Castilla y León," the one that most radiates to the Castilian dioceses leonesas, "he pointed out. Not only residents of the provinces of Segovia (where it is located) or Valladolid (where it has a large number of faithful) come to the place, but also those of Palencia, Burgos, Soria or Zamora.

Also every summer and at different vacation periods, residents of the area come who have emigrated to different places such as Catalonia, the Basque Country or Andalusia, which “is not from now, it is always. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the pilgrimages to the Henar were massive and came from all over Castile, she was his beloved Virgin, "said the rector.

The activity returns to the Juan Bravo Theater of the Diputación with the play 'Perfect strangers' and a firm commitment to safe culture 

For Bravo, who recalled that, "due to responsibility", the auditorium had been one of the first cultural spaces to be closed to the public even before the State of Alarm was declared, "that same responsibility is what leads us now to reopen ".

This reopening, which will take place on September 27 with the theatrical version of the film 'Perfect strangers' - in which Olivia Molina's participation stands out - will be done, as both detailed, adapting the Theater's security to the new regulations, in order to guarantee a safe culture. For this, among other measures, Juan Bravo has incorporated a system that allows disinfection of the premises in a reduced period of time.

In any case, the pandemic has not only affected the reduction of capacity or the adoption of health security measures, and this was also recalled by José María Bravo, before announcing a schedule marked by budget limitations that, however, did not it will lose quality and that it will continue to be varied and will have the family audience as a special protagonist.

Among the appointments designed for the adult audience, in addition to the aforementioned 'Perfect strangers', the also theatrical adaptation of Mario Vargas Llosa's novel, 'La fiesta del chivo', starring Juan Echanove, which will take place on 26 December, and the play 'La isla', directed by Juan Carlos Rubio and performed by Gema Matarranz from Segovia. From Matarranz, who will visit the Theater on December 6, the accidental president stressed that "it is always an honor to get on the boards of Juan Bravo" and anticipated that, as he did a couple of years ago with the play ' Lorca, personal correspondence ', will once again thrill the public with an island that will appear on a poster that also contains the theatrical productions' Submission and the future is in the eggs',' Caravan 'and' Blood Weddings' , Federico García Lorca's piece in a version by Guetto 13-26. In addition, as far as theater is concerned, the Juan Bravo will once again host the Provincial Theater Show during the month of November.

With regard to music, José María Bravo also announced the presence of a Segovian accent on the stage for October 25; that of the Segovian trombonist Víctor Correa, who after a long stay outside the province has returned to publicize his immersion in the international jazz scene. Also between jazz and r & b, the 'Godfather of swing', Ray Gelato will arrive in Segovia accompanied by The Giants to play on the eve of San Frutos.

And while the older ones enjoy jazz, the little ones will have the opportunity to discover the great rock songs adapted to a custom format with 'El rock suena en familia', a concert with themes by Queen, The Ramones or The Rolling Stones, to be enjoyed intergenerationally and that, together with 'Ebook', the Spasmo Teatro montage that reviews the life of the book, from the parchments to its digital model, are the two great bets of Juan Bravo to enjoy with the family. To them must be added, in addition, titles such as 'Bricomances', 'The legend of Sally Jones', 'The empires of the moon' or 'The treasure of Barracuda', which will show children the importance of teamwork, truth, patience, kindness, the importance of looking at problems with perspective or knowing how to share.

In addition, between December 21 and 29, the Juan Bravo Theater will celebrate the Christmas Family Theater Cycle, which with the works' El Princi-pato ',' Único ',' El loft of the Grimm brothers', 'The drum de Cora 'and' El viaje de Ulises' will try to bring, once again, the performing arts to the public from an early age; something in which the Provincial Council has been working intensively in recent years.

For José María Bravo, the opening of the Juan Bravo Theater, despite the restrictions, supposes "a thoughtful and safe opportunity that both society and ourselves, as Public Administration, must give to the cultural sector"; a sector that has been one of the great victims of the pandemic and that, like tourism, can count on from the Juan Bravo Theater, with the support of the Provincial Council.

The Pedrazano sculptor José Álvaro and the Navarran artist Julia Cenoz will exhibit their works at @RueMareque, a space that the Galician fashion designer Helena Mareque has built on the ruins of one of the twelve houses that made up the uninhabited town of Aldealafuente.

The exhibition will take place next Saturday, September 19, from 10 a.m. to 20 p.m., and the following Sunday, September 20, from 10 a.m. to 14 p.m., and it will be possible to contemplate the work of artists who use disparate techniques but who share a determined link with nature.

José Álvaro learned to “play with fire and master it” thanks to his father, the blacksmith from Pedraza (Segovia). Self-taught, the beginnings of this sculptor in the world of art began with works in tin and, shortly after, went on to make creations in forging and wood, noble materials that he uses to conceive not only shapes but also transmit sensations that manage to trap the viewer. The work he now presents is materialized in wrought iron sculptures that rise ethereally together with wooden blocks that are cut and rediscovered in impossible spaces.

To conceive her artistic canvases, Julia Cenoz uses textile printing, a technique that, as she admits, “has a lot of magic and little of mundane”, but thanks to which she manages to express herself as well as channel her emotions. Through this artisan process, which is carried out with natural pigments, without toxic substances, Julia seeks to capture not only the color and shape of nature, but also its essence, seeking to reflect on the true meaning of the earth and its relationship with it. man.

"In each of my works, time stands still and as a result something unique and unrepeatable is created, free from all evil", as Julia Nozón has pointed out.

@RueMareque materializes a vital project of the fashion designer Helena Mareque, who, a few years ago, landed in Aldealafuente, a neighborhood of San Pedro de Gaillos that during the 60s suffered the effects of emigration and has been uninhabited since 1976.

"The first time I saw this village, they were simple stones floating between poppies and a blue sky," says the designer.

"I was captivated by nature, and some stones that suggested the great possibilities of bringing it back to life." And so, after an exquisite process of recovery of a group of houses in ruins, he built a multidisciplinary space, open to host different cultural and social initiatives that contribute to the rebirth of Aldealafuente.

From this Thursday until November 30, the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja, in Segovia, will host an exhibition on the work of the Czech artist Jitka Kolbe, a specialist in glass sculpture and design, as reported in a note press.

The exhibition is organized by the Royal Glass Factory of the Segovian municipality, in collaboration with the Centro Checo de Madrid and the Embassy of the Czech Republic.

Artist Jitka Kolbe Růžičková had her first contact with glass when she began her studies at the Železný Brod school of glass in the Czech Republic.

In the 80s he graduated from the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague, with Professor Stanislav Libenský, the greatest exponent of the Czech study glass movement in Europe. From then on, he began his creative career in the field, both in sculpture and in glass design.

Thanks to the mastery he has over the different glass techniques, he is able to provide his works with generally smooth and geometric profiles, pictorial elements based on intense chromaticism and molded surfaces, sometimes worked with matting and engravings that when absorbing light modify the range of shades of the glass and give it different lighting effects.

As she herself indicates, “light is the inseparable companion of glass. Thanks to this play of light, the final effect is defined and the glass work comes to life ”.

Unlike his Czech colleagues who generally use the fused glass technique, Kolbe employs the traditional blow-in-mold technique, in this case of plaster, carried out in a blowing workshop, north of Prague, specializing in high-quality glass. .

The exhibition will feature a selection of works from the Big Vases collection and the Abandoned Clothes series with a social background on the Holocaust. Author's designer pieces will also be unveiled, both in glass and porcelain, called Kolbe Design.

Since the 80s, Kolbe's work has been featured in galleries in the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, the United Kingdom, China and Japan. More recently, one of his works “Gerda Stein”, from the Abandoned Clothes series, was selected in the 2019 New Glass Now competition at the Corning Museum of Glass, USA.

In Segovia there are pictures loaded with meaning that all Segovians can read.
The day that, at the foot of the Aqueduct, a huge carousel with a red roof appears, everyone knows that "they are here!" Titirimundi is synonymous with spring, full terraces and little space to park in the center ... this year, however, Titirimundi 2020 will be different, instructions for use.

We have re-thought the whole event from a security point of view. This exercise has led us to make decisions, which before the Coronavirus, were unimaginable, such as eliminating all street programming, face-to-face workshops and parties.

In 2020 there will be no street shows or public sitting on the stairs. There will be no queues at the gates of the spaces and no buses full of children from the province will come. There will be no exhibitions or workshops to learn how to carve wood. This year the festive atmosphere that the city takes during Titirimundi will be the great absentee, our first Festival without a party.

Titirimundi 2020 has a new protagonist, security. It will be the first edition of the masks, the hydroalcoholic gel and the safety distance. (COVID-19 protocols)

In addition to all of our efforts, the best way to celebrate a safe event is by appealing to personal responsibility. We must all be responsible: the organization (COVID-19 Protocol for Titirimundi 2020 workforce), the artists (COVID-19 Protocol for companies in Titirimundi 2020) and the public (Titirimundi 2020, Instructions Manual).

This will be the year that we learn to go to the theater in a different way. We have put together a guide to help you have a better Titirimundi experience this year.

Despite everything, we have much to celebrate. We keep the most important thing, the origin of everything: the puppet theater. Titirimundi 2020 will be a great cultural event in its 34th edition. It will be smaller, with fewer companies, less capacity ... but with a great artistic proposal.

This year we celebrate being able to be here, one more year, in Segovia, with the puppets.

Throughout his career this Italian musician has recorded with Maurizio Giammarco, Antonello Salis, Malik Yaqub, Bob Sands, Jerry González, Jorge Pardo, José Luis Gutiérrez, Javier Colina or Baldo Martínez, among other musicians. He is in charge of the Tommy Caggiani Therion Project musical quintet, made up of musicians who mostly come from the Conservatorio Superior de Jazz de Navarra.

The name of the group is inspired by the Greek word therion, which means half animal, half human, with which they allude to the prehistoric figures of the theriantropos, where the superhuman strength of transformation is palpable, as well as the energy of music created by the group.

'COULEUR CAFÉ. Standard Jazz Vocal '. Couleur Café Jazz Quartet (CCJQ) emerged as "Four cats" in early 2010 as a classical jazz ensemble (piano, double bass, drums and voice), with the idea of ​​bringing this style of music to the general public through versions of songs jazz and other themes that, not properly belonging to this genre, are closely linked to it. Standards of jazz, bossanova, French song, funk, bolero or pop are some of the styles that his repertoire covers.

Characterized by their versatility and a personal vision of music, the components of CCJQ thus try to give a “new breath” to “old sounds”. But, not only that: In their desire to continue learning and evolving, they continue to explore new trends and incorporate them into their playing, enriching their performances and thus making CCJQ not "just another jazz quartet" "
