The cemetery of Segovia is a privileged place in our history. Visiting their graves allows us to trace the past of those who preceded us and thus know the traces that attest to their existence. In this purpose the Art offers incredible expressive resources because it allows to speak of the Beyond with beautiful forms and offers us a certain sociocultural reality that recognizes the social emotionality through the funerary language. The symbolic language, its architecture, the landscape, the botany, emotive epitaphs, curiosities, illustrious figures or mausoleums offer us an important cultural, patrimonial and tourist resource that allows us to approach the fingerprints of our ancestors, a kind of DNA that writes the life of people and their popular traditions since death.

Friday 25 of May, Theater Group of the Carlos III University of Madrid. "Roberto Zucco" by Frenchman Bernard-Marie Kòltes
They open the contest with a classic of contemporary European dramaturgy. Inspired by the real news of a multiple murderer, who fascinated its author since he discovered in a subway station in Paris the poster "Se Busca", the work investigates several obsessions of the current world: the extreme vigilance to which it is subjected the individual, the need to flee before the vital dissatisfaction, the lack of communication between human beings. With a discourse of high existential poetry, with certain doses of black humor, this fable raises a disturbing cartography where madness, desire for freedom, violence and death intertwine and build, from fiction, the paradox of the reality of our days.
Saturday 26 of May, The Petitive 12. "Landscape"
Displaced, migrated, refugees. Tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, tens of millions ... and life goes on. Imagine having 12 years and having to leave home without being able to take anything. The cold, the fear, the tiredness, the insecurity, the uncertainty, the pain ... imagine leaving everything you know to go who knows where. They have given voice to the little ones and have considered what happens when people escape from their land. What do they leave behind? Where are they going?
Friday 1 of June, Retranka Theater. "Auto" by Ernesto Caballero
Acid comedy full of ironic and intelligent humor where the contradictions of the human condition, its secrets and lies are revealed. Auto tells the story of four people who meet in a courtroom. While waiting for the wife, the husband, the sister-in-law and the hitchhiker try to combine criteria. They try to unravel a story in which nothing is what it seems, blaming each other and wondering if they are witnesses or accused. Their versions show how bland and mediocre their lives are and how exposed they are to advertising and consumerism.
June 2 Saturday, The Submarine with "The Lord Ibrahim and the Flowers of the Koran" by Ernesto Caballero
Paris, 60 years. Momó, a young Jewish boy befriends the Arab shopkeeper on Calle Azul. But the shopkeeper may not be Arab, the Blue Street, may not be blue and the boy may not be Jewish, since the story that is told is much more than that: it is the sign of love, tolerance and respect. Located on the outskirts of a city where religions, races, cultures, customs and also prejudices coexist that, in many occasions, make us move away from our neighbor without even giving him the opportunity to know him.
