The candles will be lit tomorrow, Friday, July 23, from 21:30 p.m., to illuminate the atrium of the hermitage of the Virgen de las Vegas de Pedraza, in the town of Requijada, located in the municipality of Santiuste de Pedraza . There, in the middle of an intimate atmosphere, the last activity proposed by the Diputación Bibliobuses Reading Club will take place: a poetry recital in which, while the group of Trescasas Nomada del Verso will narrate the events of the Romance de los Community members, the Collara School of Dulzaina de Cuéllar will be in charge of putting music to the words.

"We have thought that it would be good to complement the activity of the Reading Club with other initiatives, especially now that outdoor events can be organized", point out the librarians Pilar Martín, María Jesús Artalejo and Esmeralda Arribas. They, together with the residents of Requijada, who have collaborated at all times with the organization of this concert-recital, have been in charge of preparing the stage for the performance, which, as they point out, will be free and open to the public; whether or not they are members of the Reading Club. "We would like people to be encouraged to join the Club, especially men, who are not many, and we believe that with complementary activities like this we can reach more people," they explain, indicating that among the planned initiatives is the visit to the exhibition 'The Communards on the scaffold', shows that can be visited since April at the headquarters of the Cortes of Castilla y León.

The reason, both for the celebration of the recital and for the future visit to the Cortes, is none other than the fact that the next session of the Club, which meets online periodically, will feature the book 'El blazon de la Reina ', by Francisco Egido from Segovia, a historicist thriller, framed in the War of the Communities, in which the protagonist, Juan Manuel López-Atienza, faces the challenge of discovering the truth about the blazon of Queen Juana de Castilla, whose existence no one has been able to prove, but which is said to have changed the history of an entire empire. This virtual meeting will take place on Monday, September 20, but until then the librarians of the Provincial Council hope that the Segovians will be encouraged and want to accompany them in the poetic recital tomorrow Friday.

Cuéllar takes up little by little what would be the usual activities of each summer although far from what they could be in all their essence. However, associations, platforms and groups intend to continue with many of them so as not to lose the sense of their organization. This is the case of Cegafest, a festival that from the IU Youth Area has always combined music, workshops and talks with its objective, to keep alive the fight for the Cega River and its good conditions.

Next, the short film 'Auga, terra… Aire (A bag)', directed by Pablo Banga and Pablo Casal, will be screened. It is a criticism of consumer society through the journey of an abandoned plastic bag that invites us to reflect on the closest natural environment, which on many occasions goes unnoticed and is not adequately valued.

Another of the most appealing proposals this summer is the now classic summer cinema in the Plaza de Toros. On Wednesday 21 and July 28, 'Omward' and 'Mighty Minds' will be screened respectively, at 22.00 pm. On the 4th, 'Daggers from the back' will be screened, to close this cycle with 'Flying together' on Wednesday, August 11.

Added to all this are the San Francisco evenings every Friday, which are already bringing the best of jazz, soul and R&B to this magical setting in the center of Cuéllar. This Friday, by the hand of Caja Rural, a concert is being held -outside this cycle- by 'Choro em tres'. It is free but a prior reservation is required.

Other proposals announced by councilor Sánchez include the performance of the Atlántida Chamber Orchestra on July 29, The Cives Band days before, the Nao de Amores theater on August 15 or the return of the Jotas Festival the day before. All the information will be available in a calendar that will be located in all the information points that are distributed along the streets of Cuéllar. The mayor said that this year there will not be a summer magazine either so that the public is the one who looks for culture and comes to know what has been organized at these information points.

Likewise, the councilor explained that they are still trying to instill prior reservation among the public; For this, in concerts such as the Mudejar Nights, the previous reservation of tickets has a reduction of three euros. Reservations can be made at Tenerías and at 691 33 93 11, and it is recommended to go in good time until the start of the show.

The Diputación de Segovia collaborates one more year with this initiative to bring quality culture to the Northeast region of the province

To the main natural enclaves of this attractive region such as the gorges of the Riaza and Duratón rivers, the Sierra de Ayllón, or the Acebal de Prádena in the Sierra Norte de Guadarrama, there is another no less striking, the "Multicultural Enclave"

An open space to discover new cultural diversity throughout the year on a territory that is alive, because it grows and develops naturally from the performing arts, music, literature or traditions themselves as a seed to cultivate the best local product "the human "

Third consecutive season for a project that works from the proximity and closeness with mayors, councilors, associations and educational centers. And that this significant summer has been consolidated from the "greatest responsible opportunity" in the face of the pandemic.

The idea moves by semesters based on four thematic blocks; "Spring of Music, Summer of Circus, Autumn of Theater and Winter of Magic". Seasonal references that embrace the central themes, but also have a place for narratives, stories, clowns, puppets or dance, with a focus always directed towards all audiences.

This effort in favor of equality regarding access to culture in rural areas is faithfully adapted to the needs and concerns of the territory, and is possible thanks and above all to the efforts of the participating municipalities, the European Leader funds managed by the Codinse Local Action Group, Diputación de Segovia and the work of other people involved, who tenaciously continue forward with incessant and growing thinking.

The closest thing to a "traveling regional festival" that will take place from July 3 to September 25, is started, marked by its strong identity and the artistic quality it offers as usual, on a wide theme dedicated to a determined summer to be splendid in the Northeast of Segovia.

A total of 10 locations, 20 shows and 2 educational activities. To which we must also highlight the presence of 15 companies from different origins, including Segovia. Acrobatic circus and juggling, traditional Castilian music, puppet theater, percussion, body music, magic, clown and a lot of humor to regain belonging, joy and life on our social and family environments.

Ready to start this appetizing cultural tour, we will go to Prádena, a traditional place of commerce and herding, to present two great jugglers who know how to combine their specialty with music and comedy very well. In the middle of the tour and from Seville, Los Hermanos Infoncundibles pure diabolical energy will pass like a lightning bolt on stage.

With more calm and downstream through the Riaza valley, we will be attracted to Cerezo de Abajo, Ayllón and Languilla by the enchantment of two violins and two voices, melodies from a Castilian repertoire of dulzaina and vocal that CastellanAs reconverts to take it to a more ground contemporary adopting a more experimental model, but maintaining at all times the heartbeat of the Castilian root. Further down we will discover Maderuelo, the small medieval fortress, which, unopposed, will fall before the folkloric wisdom of a very captivating Segovian, Jesús Parra.

Exploring places once traveled by El Cid, we will arrive at Fresno de Cantespino where we will find a very segovian rogue, La Pícara Locuela, always ready to surprise us with her coiled puppets hidden behind the "Faldón de la locura"

From ancient Roman sites, Castillejo de Mesleón. Here, Chimichurri, a peculiar circus company striving to caricature extremely skilled street characters, will roam your attention.

Looking over the extensive Segovian countryside we will see Grajera, a friendly and vibrant place, ideal to welcome Nenacaracol, a company descended from the well-known Mayúmana, percussionists who love rhythm and musical games through everyday objects and the most precious instrument, our body and voice. .

Between heaven and earth the Sierra de Ayllón, with its colorful red and black villages and where another like Riaza wants to shine among the natural thicket with "Emportats", a fantastic journey for the senses that will be offered by the renowned contemporary circus company La Trócola Circ on his tour from Alicante.

Undoubtedly, everything in this territory is magical, as will happen in Ribota at the hands of Gele Rodrigo, a musician and comedian magician, a "native species born in Segovia" very unique to observe, listen and dream.

Even repeating the traveling experience to the northeast of the province of Segovia is possible, because most of these places offer second and third opportunities to have no excuses and enjoy a good food for the soul, the culture that is born in the middle of nature.

The week began with the presentation of one of the annual appointments of each summer by the emeritus professor Juan Carlos Llorente and the Councilor for Tourism, Maite Sánchez. 'With heritage, punctually', returns one more year and aims to bring the heritage of the town to the public with guided tours in which the most characteristic and least known elements and distinctive features do not go unnoticed.

In this edition and as explained in the presentation of this activity, the appointments will focus on the baroque. It will take place on Saturdays, July 17, 24 and 31, and on August 7 at 11.00 a.m., with a symbolic price of 2 euros. The first visit will be in San Andrés, the second in San Esteban, in the third visit the Chapel of La Magdalena and the Chapel of Orphan Girls, and the last will be in the parish church of San Miguel. The Councilor for Tourism explained that all the covid measures for these activities are still being maintained, and the capacity is reduced to 20 people, so it is recommended to book in advance at the Tourism Office; Reservations will have priority if the capacity is exceeded. The mayor publicly thanked the work of Juan Carlos Llorente, "disinterested and only for the love of his people, and what he transmits must be made known to the youngest so that they develop a greater awareness about heritage." Sánchez recalled unpleasant events such as graffiti, removal of materials and "regrettable" acts that speak "of the lack of perspective and value of his heritage." That is why he encourages young people to know their heritage in this way. Llorente affirmed that there are more and more those who are encouraged to these visits and come with foreign friends so that they know the heritage wealth of Cuéllar.

The history teacher announced that it will be the baroque that will focus the explanations of this edition in each place, but without forgetting the most representative of each place even if it is located in another movement. Llorente commented that this year he will speak of the presence of a baroque in the town that was not abundant or that is located in the proto-baroque of the seventeenth century. He anticipates that all the richness that the baroque brings will be visible in the main altars of San Andrés, San Esteban, La Magdalena, Orphan Girls, with very accentuated rococo aspects, and the main altar of San Miguel, "one of the most spectacular in Castile. and León ”. In addition to the main altars, other Baroque ones accompany each temple, where the most representative images will also be analyzed, as well as the paintings. "We will pay attention, as it cannot be otherwise, to elements of each place, such as the Christ of La Encian in San Andrés, the tombs of San Esteban," said Llorente.

The departure of the visits will be made at each point to visit each day, at the scheduled time. The use of a mask will be mandatory when dealing with group activities and all measures will be respected to safeguard the safety of the attendees and that they enjoy the experience every Saturday.

In any case, and given the high demand from city councils, priority has been given, both to those municipalities that had not hosted the activity in previous editions, and to those towns that have been the first to process the request. Thus, during the months of July, August and September, the activity will reach towns such as Riaguas de San Bartolomé, El Espinar, Casla, Villaverde de Íscar, Navafría or Castillejo de Mesleón, which, as the deputy has indicated, “have access to projects like this no matter how big or small they may be ”.
 
With this project, which will again be carried out by an external company, the provincial institution wants to invite young people to be part of a didactic leisure initiative, which will allow them to acquire knowledge of astronomy and at the same time enjoy the extraordinary sky they have. about your province.

"Wounds. Mujeres de Federico García Lorca ”and“ La sombra del Tenorio ”protagonists this week in the IX Amateur Theater Contest that is being held in Sepúlveda.

 

          Yokauli Scene with “Wounds. Mujeres de Federico García Lorca ”and El Duende de Lerma with“ La sombra del Tenorio ”will be the companies in charge of filling the stage of the Breton Theater with life this weekend.

 

            This Friday the curtain of the Breton Theater of the town will open again to continue with the IX Amateur Theater Contest "Siete Llaves", in this case, with two companies whose shows and works have been highly valued and awarded throughout the entire Spanish geography.

            On Friday, June 11 at 21:00 p.m. at the Breton Theater in Sepúlveda, YOKAULI SCENE brings us "Wounds. Federico García Lorca's women ” de Federico García Lorca.

To understand Federico through the universe of his women: this is the objective of this montage. Create a scenic and poetic space based on an encounter between the poet and his five heroines. Elaborate a dramaturgy so that creatures and creatures coexist in the same creative habitat with a single limitation: each and every one of the words spoken is from Lorca. The conflicts of the characters are intertwined with poems, fragments of interviews and reflections that Lorca leaves throughout his dense work.

With this montage we get closer to some of its most relevant female characters and we do it from our own perspective, but also with the eyes of its author who revives his five "heroines": Bodas de Sangre's mother, Mariana Pineda, Yerma, Doña Rosita and Bernarda.

The play is structured in two acts. In the first, there are five paintings, one for each female character, in which their vital conflicts are presented. In the second, the five paintings reveal the outcome of his tragedy.

Five wounded women. Five women torn by the dagger of life, love and death. Five gasps. Silenced. Because "there are things locked behind the walls that cannot change because nobody hears them ... but if they suddenly came out and shouted, they would fill the world". And that underground cry, that irrepressible desire for freedom, life, love without limits, is what moves the five women, until they hit the wall of mediocre, petty and oppressive reality that surrounds them, or against their own inherited limitations generation after generation.

 

 

The origin of the term Youkali is found in an "instrumental habanera tango" composed by Kurt Weill and belonging to the stage music of "Maria Galante" novel by Jacques Deval adapted to the theater in 1934 and later to the cinema. Initially it was instrumental but in 1935 Roger Fernay added a lyrics that spoke of the unattainable longings symbolized by an island called Youkali.

They steal the title from this inspiring tango to name their project with the illusion of creating their own desert island and filling it with passions, desires, hope, pleasure, light, liberation and LOVE FOR THE THEATER. They want to give a happy ending to this tango and, moving away from utopia, make Youkali a reality, the land of dreams compliments, the island where lost and forgotten longings are realized, where there are no problems, routine, worry ... Where the heart takes you.

YOUKALI SCENE is the dream of theater lovers with the same need: TO ACT, to bring out all the characters that they carry inside, that have remained in them throughout their lives, that have lent them their emotions, that have made them mature… and DISCOVER everything that awaits us, that will leave its mark on us and for those of us who will live in Youkali.

"The theater is a school of tears and laughter" ... only a genius like Lorca could sum it up so poetically.

            On Saturday, June 12 at 21:00 p.m. THE ELF OF LERMA presents the work to us "The shadow of the Tenorio" de José Luis Alonso de Santos.

"The Shadow of TENORIO" It is one of the main titles in contemporary Spanish dramaturgy, produced by José Luis Alonso de Santos, one of the most distinguished Spanish creators.

Alonso de Santos, based on the "famous myth" of Tenorio, elaborates a tender and emotional story based on the vicissitudes of an old actor, one of those who have spent their lives touring towns in the interior of the country, he lives his last days in a poor hospital, where a nun who has taken a vow of silence assists him.

The character that this old actor has played throughout his life is none other than that of Ciutti, Don Juan Tenorio's assistant, and it is natural that at that difficult moment in his life, that role would return again and again to his memory, but he will explain again and again to the silent nun that all his life he really wanted to play the character of Juan Tenorio and that for the only and last time he is going to represent him for her.

This is how the current viewer is faced with a game with different levels of fiction, proposing to the public a theater game in the theater ... The texts of Don Juan Tenorio by José Zorrilla speak, or what the old actor invents in his senile delirium, or the playwright Alonso de Santos speaks ...

This whole game is wrapped in a high level of humor and poetry and an exceptional acting job carried out by the first actor. Luis Orcajo "The goblin of Lerma", accompanied by the actress Round Consuelo.

The asociación The Duende of Lerma, was founded in the summer of 2010 and, although it is a recently created company, it was already born with 30 years of experience on stage, since the actors that make it up come entirely from the La Hormiga theater group. Luis Miguel Orcajo, main actor of The goblin of Lerma, debuted on stage in 1980. From that date to the present day, it has represented works by a wide range of authors and multiple characters and have received numerous awards in the different competitions that are held in our country.

In this way, the poster of the remaining weeks of the Contest is as follows:

  • Friday June 11: "Wounds. Women of Federico García Lorca ”YOUKALI SCENE (Author: Federico García Lorca)
  • Saturday June 12: "The shadow of the Tenorio" THE ELF FROM LERMA (Author: José Luis Alonso de Santos).
  • Friday June 18: "Pajamas for six" ICARO THEATER COMPANY (Author: Mario Camoletti).
  • Saturday July 3: Closing gala and awards ceremony.

            All performances will take place at the Breton Theater at 21:00 p.m. Advance ticket sale (€ 5) at the Town Hall and at the Sepúlveda Tourist Office.

This was pointed out by the Councilor for Culture, Maite Sánchez, who pointed out that this format is being recovered after the good reception last year, but also as a commitment by the government team to San Francisco as an «axis of interest for this town, as a building and also as a cultural center ”, thus making reference to the future purchase of the adjoining spaces to turn the area into an auditorium.

The nave of the church will once again be filled with music by the hand of five groups "which I think will delight all those music lovers," explained Sánchez, noting that advancing the program is due to the intention of the team government to promote and accustom the population to online or advance sales, since there will always be a physical space to purchase tickets. "We understand that it is very important, especially at a time like this, to plan our leisure activities a little and we also want to get people used to it, but there will also be box office sales on the same day."

'Las Veladas de San Francisco', whose concerts will take place from 22:00 p.m., will begin on July 23 with the group Saxos del Averno, which emerged as a quartet of saxophones that accompanied the rock group Ginferno, among others and that gradually became a group that has established itself as an independent band, making their own music, with large doses of rhythm and blues with Latin and rock touches, a concert that «I think that many students of the School of Music They are going to love it.

Their recording debut was last year with a four-track album whose aim is to show some of the hits created by the group that have so far made fans dance and scream at their concerts.

The Grand World Magic Gala and Family Rock complete the line-up along with the show 'A vueltas con Lorca', by Carmelo Gómez.

Europe has forgotten the Nazi holocaust, but now, for the first time since the end of the war, the extermination camp survivors will once again share the same space as their torturers, albeit this time on equal terms.
Or maybe not?
To achieve justice, those men and women must relive the greatest horror ever created by man, face to face, after twenty years of silence, although not all are willing to break it. Will everyone be prepared to accept what they were? On whose side are those who should judge this process? Will they really be able to face the truth or is it all a mockery to wash consciences? Who among the characters could have been us? Would we have been victims or executioners? What decisions would we have
taken? In these questions the theater is speaking to our faces.
La Lengua Teatro was established as a stable company in 2005 and performed Don Juan Tenorio. IN 2007, it premiered Certificate of Existence on texts by Mario Benedetti. Later, El hombre de en medio would arrive, based on stories by Karel Capek, Money, A love story in times of criris, an update of Aristophanes' Pluto, Miguel Mihura's Three Top Hats, Thomas Vinterberg's Celebration, and Romeo and Julieta by William Shakespeare, the last four premiered at the Liceo Theater in Salamanca.

El Lindo Don Diego is possibly one of the funniest comedies of the Golden Age. Moreto perfectly portrays the type of counterpart of the leading man, what has been called the “figurine”. Extravagant, smart to the ridiculous and absolutely self-conscious, Don Diego lives in a world that he created
without interacting with others and without wanting to become aware of reality.

Agnes, horrified by this marriage and in love with don Juan, tries to dissuade the clumsy suitor. Don Diego, devoid of feelings and convinced in his blindness that she (like all women) is mad with love for him, magnanimously resolves to give his cousin his hand, from whom he expects a good dowry.
The house servants, Mosquito and Beatriz, together with don Juan, contrive a brilliant deception to make him desist from his purpose. Thus, Beatriz disguises herself as a countess, and succeeds in making Don Diego fall in love with her and promises her marriage, with which he hopes to "be fond of" and not to "get rid of himself." Thus imprisoned by his selfishness and his lack of awareness of reality, Don Diego realizes that he has been the object of a terrible deception ...
The TEATRO ARCÓN DE OLID company was born in Valladolid in the spring of 1996 and is made up of 18 people, including actors and technicians who in most cases come from different theatrical groups or from environments related to the Theater.

The theatrical version of 'Perfect strangers', a Spanish translation of the Italian play 'Perfetti sconosciuti', by Paolo Genovese, adapted by David Serrano and Daniel Guzmán, and directed by the latter, ends its tour next Saturday, June 12, at 20.30 pm, at the Menéndez Pidal Auditorium Theater in El Espinar. The play, an original and surprising comedy, stars Inge Martín, Álex Barahona, Olivia Molina, Juan Carlos Vellido, Elena Ballesteros, Bart Santana and Ismael Fritschi.

“When I was asked to direct Perfect Strangers in Theater, I asked what was the dramatic premise from which the story started and I was interested. I read the original text of the Italian author and I was attracted by the friendship story of a group of lifelong friends, the depth of the characters, the crazy situations, the many twists and the reflection that the author suggests on the use of mobile phones and the control it exerts over our lives. The plot line through which this work passes and the closeness of the story make this comedy a journey full of surprises with large doses of humor, but it also contains great humanity and depth in each of its characters ”, explains director Daniel Guzman.

'Perfect strangers' talks about how hyper-connected everyone is today and the lack of communication that really exists between people, among those who are closest or most important, as a partner or best friends.

“Beyond the narrative content and the sense of humor, this work questions behaviors and invites reflection: Should we share all our secrets? How far does the limit of our privacy go? Do new technologies help us or do they control our lives? ”Adds Guzmán. To achieve this, he has had the complicity of David Serrano with whom he has adapted the text. Serrano and Guzmán have previously worked on the play 'Dos Más Dos', also produced by Pentación.

Five and a half years have passed since Concha Velasco was Olivia on the stage of the Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater with a work that, combining pain, tenderness and a good sense of humor in front of both, moved a Segovian public that in this 2021 of pandemic and theaters at a third of capacity, has not hesitated to sell out the tickets of 'Maria's room' in the blink of an eye.

And it is that there was a lot of desire to receive in Segovia the tireless actress, who at 81 years old will put herself tomorrow, Saturday, May 8, starting at 19:30 p.m., in the shoes of a famous writer, Isabel Chacón, who On the day of her eightieth birthday, she turns 43 in confinement at her home. In a text written by her own son, Manuel Martínez Velasco, and directed by José Carlos Plaza, Concha Velasco is forced to decide whether to see her character's agoraphobia turned to ashes, after the flames take over the Madrid skyscraper in whose fortieth seventh floor inhabits, or if, on the contrary, observe how your life burns and is consumed in a matter of minutes.

Aware that not even the awarding of the prestigious Planeta Award has recently managed to get her out of her apartment, where any food, clothing or medicine that she needs arrives at any time of the day, the protagonist of 'María's room' will talk, showing off a good sense of humor, with the fears, ghosts and traumas that have led her to be entrenched in her fortress for nearly half a century, before making a life or death decision.

Once again, and after postponements and rescheduling that seemed to be determined to make the return of Concha Velasco to Segovia impossible, the audience of the Juan Bravo Theater will have the opportunity to attend the intelligent monologue of one of the most beloved and outstanding actresses of the Spanish scene. of the last half century, which, if he has shown anything in his sixty-seven years as a performer, it is a deep love and absolute dedication for his profession.

From the hand of Pentación, who last week brought the play 'Los mojigatos' to the stage of Juan Bravo and who has already put other veteran and admired actresses such as Lola Herrera on the Segovian stage, Concha Velasco will try to make the public reflect on those wounds that accumulate throughout a lifetime and fail to close and on how, those wounds without a scar are imprisoning feelings that are difficult to release as time accumulates.

In recent years, improvised theater pieces have emerged with force in theaters of the country, becoming a kind of genre that increasingly moves more followers and that tomorrow, Friday, May 7, starting at 19:30 p.m. , will water the Juan Bravo Theater of the Provincial Council of impulsive reflections and briefly considered responses. It will do so at the hands of Impromadrid, a leading company in improvisation, both nationally and internationally, which in Segovia will offer the public the unique opportunity to get into several of its gardens.

And it is that 'Gardens (Brief interviews in unexpected gardens)', is a montage that starts from the questions that the five main characters ask various viewers about love, time, fear, the present and memories. Questions that can be about the vicissitudes of chance when sitting in a means of public transport or dealing with the difficulty of not picking up the mobile phone and asking Google when any symptoms or suspicious body pain appear. How much time is given to people who don't matter the least? Should the theater reflect or just entertain ?; any question can be apt to enter the scene.

Based on the audience's responses, the interpreters will imagine and recreate possible scenes that will always end up stirring like vines, with the aim of getting to know more about the gardens that people are usually capable of stepping on in any situation. In this way, in the end it will be the audience itself who ends up wondering what constitutes part of the performance and what is the result of improvisation, what has been rehearsed in a container and content and what has been worked solely in its form.

Of which there will be no doubt, is that the sense of humor will accompany all the questions towards a more fun place, towards a less gloomy garden than the one that, at first, seems to inhabit the stage.

The show, for which there are still tickets at the price of 12 euros or 10 euros for young people up to 30 years old, is directed by Ignacio López, co-director of Impromadrid Teatro, a group that he founded together with Nacho Soriano at the beginning of this century, when improvisation was hardly known in Spain. Since then, the company, creator and producer of the Madrid International Theater Improvisation Festival, the only one in our country and one of the most important in the world, has worked on these techniques, launching more than fifteen productions and consolidating itself as one of the most stable and risky in this discipline.

On August 8, 2021, the Holy door of the Sanctuary of El Henar will open, at the beginning of the Henarense Jubilee Year. The cloister today hosted the presentation of the logo, the poster, and a promotional video of this commemoration when 400 years have passed since the Virgin of the Henar Festival was awarded. An event that will take place on August 9, but the Jubilee will start the day before. The Bishop of Segovia, Mons. César Franco, has commented on the main line of the pastoral letter that he has written on the occasion of the celebration of this very special year. The prelate defines in his text Marian devotion in this sanctuary as "a hallmark of the Diocese and a privileged place of Marian piety in Castilla y León". For this reason, he recalled that all the events convened, religious and cultural, have the purpose of "transmitting to society that faith and life are related in perfect harmony and contribute to making joy full." Finally, he has to make a pilgrimage to El Henar with "faith and detachment from everything that prevents walking lightly", hoping that this Jubilee Year "will turn this much loved region into a focus of pilgrimage and that we know how to convey the joy that the pilgrim Church of hand of Christ ».

The rector of the Sanctuary of the Virgin of El Henar, Carlos Miguel García Nieto, has been in charge of reeling off the meaning of the motto chosen for this Jubilee Year: 'My Mother and my brothers'. The rector began by alluding to the words of Jesus Christ when asked who his mother and brothers are: "those who listen to the Word, fulfill it and live it," he said. For this reason, he wanted to emphasize that from El Henar "we want all who come to find here a community of brothers" in which to reaffirm joy, faith and mercy.

For her part, Sonia Martín Quijada, designer of the identifying logo for this event, commented on its symbolism. With the image in the memory of the tile of the Virgin, Martín has revealed that his objective is to bring this Marian image closer to those who know it, and to those who do not. A representation where "nothing is accidental" with three essential points: the mother, the child and the miracle.


All roads take you to El Henar from August 8
With the crown, a replica of the original, he wanted to represent that the Virgin is queen of the people and Mother of God. An image with a red cloak, the same color as the one that the Virgen del Henar carries in the procession of her big day, although different from the red incarnate of the Child's cloak, a replica of the color of the Romanesque carving. The logo also represents the miracle that is attributed to this Marian invocation: it says that it appeared to a shepherd who was told to unearth it from the place where it was, from which miraculous water flowed. Today that place is the 'source of the candle', represented in the logo by three drops of water, leaving "each one of us to be the shepherd, who see the Virgin and recognize in her the mother, the child and the miracle".

For its part, Belén Escudero de Benito, from the 'Virgen del Henar' Association, has unveiled the details of a commemorative handkerchief of this Jubilee Year, available for sale in the sanctuary shop and which is Immaculate blue in which the celebration logo is embroidered. Likewise, he has assured that they are working on a sweet for this Jubilee Year that can later be established as a typical sweet of the sanctuary.

The Henarense Jubilee Year was granted by the Holy See on October 23, 2020 in response to the request made by the Bishop of Segovia. This Jubilee Year arises as a response to the commemoration of the IV Centenary of the pontifical concession of the feast of Our Lady of El Henar —by virtue of the brief pontifical of August 9, 1621 of Gregory XV—. A celebration to which is added the commemoration of the L Anniversary of the Canonical Coronation of the image of the Virgin, which took place on June 25, 1972.

The celebration of this jubilee is an occasion for interior renewal, as well as making a positive difference in the area, generating spaces for meeting, investment and wealth. Likewise, it can serve as an incentive for an emptied Castile that finds on its way to Cuéllar and El Henar a way of reclaiming to promote its different localities.

From tomorrow, Friday, April 9, and until next September 26, the Esteban Vicente Contemporary Art Museum offers its visitors the possibility of immersing themselves in the artistic universe of Gonzalo Borondo and in his vision of the inheritance acquired, both in terms of material as well as the immaterial, due to the land occupied by the current museum space, which was previously a palace, a house for nobles and even a 'hospital for the elderly'.

'Hereditas', which is the name of the new exhibition that Esteban Vicente houses, is a combination of modern art and transformation of the past that, as Miguel Ángel de Vicente, president of the The Provincial Council and the Museum Consortium, alluding to the definition of 'inheritance', has succeeded in making Borondo "cultivate the Museum space in a way that has never been seen before, both for the land and for the artist himself." And it is that, 'Hereditas', which takes the witness of 'La Montaña plana' by José María Yagüe in the 'Semillero de arte' - dedicated to the incipient talent of the province and sponsored and promoted by the Provincial Council since last year - is , as argued by its curator, José María Parreño, "a complex intervention in the Museum space whose purpose is to question the past from the presuppositions of the present and, specifically, to value the nature of the Museum as a place in which to preserve our Heritage for generations to come and show the wonderful ability of art to bring back to life objects that lost their original function. "

For his part, the artist explains the exhibition as "a kind of reconciliation of the place with the past"; a concept that started from the idea "of understanding, as in other works, the History of the place, its function, everything that encompasses the space and derives from the idea of ​​reflecting on Heritage, heritage and the past; and that past understood as the facts and events that make up a city that ends up being what it is against what it could not be ".

Through very different languages ​​and supports such as installations, painting, projections, animations, optical illusions, sound effects or making use of digital technology, Borondo, which for 'Hereditas' has not lost the opportunity to recover pieces from the past such as sculptures, columns, pieces of plasterwork or niches that are sometimes shown as they were conceived and on other occasions recreated in a contemporary key, pay homage to the natural heritage at the same time. Dividing the sample into the chapters Herba, Petra, Carnis and Eter, the artist alludes with his work to the vegetable kingdom, the mineral, the animal and the realm of the immaterial respectively; something that for Miguel Ángel de Vicente "brings out his creativity and his art in the middle of the nature of the Museum, in the same way that he manages to make nature sprout in the middle of his work and his original proposal, transforming the space into an unexpected place. for those who know him well and are faithful to the exhibitions that Esteban Vicente usually hosts ".

Nor is a museum a natural habitat for Borondo, who opens with 'Hereditas' in one and to whom both the Museum's director, Ana Doldán, and Miguel Ángel de Vicente appreciated having shown themselves "willing to experiment, interact and dialogue with this place , leaving your inspiration locked in a museum for the first time ". "I hope you have felt that at all times he was in full freedom", continued the president of the Provincial Council before ending by inviting the Segovians to come to Esteban Vicente "willing to experiment, to interact, to dialogue ... not only with the walls of the Museum, but with all its surroundings and its atmosphere ".

'Hereditas' will propose, until next September 26, an immersive and free trip to those who visit it from Tuesday to Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 14:00 p.m. and from 16:00 p.m. to 19:00 p.m. until June 30 and from 11:00 to 14:00 and from 17:00 to 20:00 from July 1 to September 26; from 11:00 to 20:00 on Saturdays; and from 11:00 to 15:00 on Sundays and holidays.

"Looking at the programming for this quarter, many of the theater's regular spectators will realize that there are titles or performances already announced some time ago", affirmed José María Bravo, adding that "this is nothing more than a reflection of the important work carried out by the institution and the Theater Directorate to talk with the companies and readjust everything, in order not to deprive our audience of the opportunity to see some productions that had generated a lot of expectation and that had to be canceled due to the worsening of the health situation ". Among them, the long-awaited 'María's room', with Concha Velasco at the helm, which, if nothing prevents it, will finally visit the Segovian theater on May 8 or the improvised theater piece 'Jardines', which will go up to the Juan Bravo tables a day before, on May 7.

Theatrical news

Regarding the theatrical novelties that had not been announced until today, José María Bravo highlighted Gabino Diego's visit on May 1 with 'Los mojigatos' and the trip in 'Bla bla coche' led by Pablo Carbonell on May 21 May. In addition, the works 'Headliners' on April 17, 'Gruyère' on May 9 and 'Comedians', on May 29, will complete the theatrical programming for adult audiences in a quarter in which there will also be days dedicated to the youngest, who, in addition to attending the aforementioned 'Yeehaw!', may also take their older brothers, parents, uncles or grandparents to the pieces 'Acrobat and Harlequin' on April 16, based on Picasso's circus, 'The Color Monster' on April 25 and 'The Extraordinary Story of the Cow Margarita' on May 23.

Once again, both the deputy and the director of the Theater pointed out that "they have tried to set prices for tickets affordable for all budgets" which, in the case of performances for the elderly, will range between 7 and 25 euros depending on of the show, the location in the room and the ages of the spectators, and in the case of performances aimed at children, they will vary between 5 and 10 euros. The sale, which will be segmented again in order to avoid refunds in the event that the situation forces the Theater to close again, will begin tomorrow, both at the box office and on the Tickentradas platform, for the shows scheduled in April and for those performances scheduled in May will not begin until April 21.

To all this programming, the Juan Bravo Theater will add, in principle, on April 11, the dance gala of Los Comuneros of the group La Esteva, whose proceeds will go to the AECC, and other institutional or solidarity events that will take place during the month of June.

Choosing Sepúlveda as your destination for this Easter holiday means visiting a beautiful medieval town in the northeast of Segovia, walking and admiring its streets and corners, knowing the rich Romanesque it has, its historical buildings, its wall and its seven gates, its museums and centers of interpretation, its history and its culture. It means walking and disconnecting on one of the trails that can be carried out in the Hoces del Río Duratón Natural Park and savoring the rich cuisine and its star dish, the roast suckling lamb, according to the Sepúlveda Tourist Office.

This week can also be synonymous with tourism, but this year, these days of vacation and enjoyment will be different, although they should not be any less special. During these days, several of the Romanesque buildings and museums will remain open, with the aim that those who visit us can also get to know the rich heritage of Sepúlveda, this year with reduced capacity and special measures.

Among the visitors there are many who decide to enjoy nature and relax in it, therefore, the Hoces del Río Duratón become a perfect place for it. Of the routes that can be done, three begin or are in Sepúlveda. On the one hand, the Path of the Two Rivers, circular and chosen by many to enjoy and breathe nature, art and history at the same time; Another of the trails is known as La Senda Larga that starts from Sepúlveda and reaches the Villaseca bridge, important for those who are going to have it get a permit at the Casa del Parque, since it is the breeding season of the king of the heavens of this earth, the Griffon Vulture; and finally, the Path of the Glorieta.

But these days religious tourism also becomes the protagonist, and although this year again the processions and most of the acts cannot be carried out, as is logical, whoever wants to can enjoy a little of Holy Week of Sepúlveda thanks to the exhibition that the Board of Brotherhoods of the town has organized in the church of Our Lady of the Virgin de la Peña. The idea is to recreate, through the steps, the three most important processions held in Sepúlveda, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The church will be open on Thursday 1, Friday 2, Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm to 7pm.

The Juan Bravo de la Diputación Theater will once again live tomorrow, Saturday, March 27, at 20:00 p.m., an afternoon of contemporary dance with the Gipuzkoan company LaSala as the protagonist. Directed by Judith Argomaniz, who is also in charge of the dramaturgy and choreography, the group will perform the show 'Luz' in Segovia, based on the contrast of the antagonistic worlds of light and darkness.

This piece, which, due to the luminous part, dances on the sacred, purity, delicacy, subtlety or fragility, delves, in its dark area, in brutality, the wild and the bestial world, giving rise to a montage of silver, red and black colors in which Carla Diego, Garazi Etxaburu, Jaiotz Osa and Miren Lizeaga present an aspect close to the galactic, while moving to the rhythm of compositions as opposed as the music of Johan Sebastian Bach, Henryk can be. Górecki, David Lang or Jean François Vrod before that of Marilyn Manson.

Since its creation in 2013, LaSala Danza, which is made up of artists from the field of dance and photography, has sought to reflect a physical language and current aesthetics in its montages, which have not only received awards and recognitions from the sector, but also by the spectators, achieving, among others, the audience award for the best dance show for 'Now' at the Huesca International Theater and Dance Fair or the audience award for 'Hooked' at the XIX Concours Chòreographique Contemporain Jeunes Compagnies - Les Synodales in the French town of Sens.

In April 2018, the spectators of the Juan Bravo Theater of the Diputación had the opportunity to see the Companhia do Châpito represent, in a sarcastic way and based on objects, mainly spoons, the life of Electra. Then, the Portuguese company accumulated laughter among the public with a way of doing theater that gave the public the ability to imagine a lot with very little and that conquered the Segovians with a good tragicomic dose. Tomorrow, Friday, March 26, the Companhia do Chapitô returns to Juan Bravo starting at 20:00 p.m. and does so accompanied by another character, less mythological, but more historical: Napoleon.

The republican general and his life full of ups and downs, battles, ambition and determination, serves the company to make a portrait of a character who, despite not having been a funny being, provokes laughter; sometimes out of eccentricity and sometimes out of pity. With a scenography, again, based on objects and a staging in which the gestural theater has special relevance, Companhia do Chapitô tries to understand the man who was the French military and the entire phenomenon created around his figure. "We are torn between fascination and rejection", say the members of the company, who, through the history of Napoleon, end up noting that, despite having died in 1821, is still current.

While Cláudia Nóvoa and José C. García are in charge of directing 'Napoleón or the Epic Complex', the interpretation is provided by Jorge Cruz, Susana Nunes and Tiago Viegas. The three of them, and little else, are used to recreate Napoleon's personal ambition or his audacity and his ability to work to expand the territory and appropriate the ideals of the French Revolution. At the same time, the Portuguese actors make the public participate in the other side of Bonaparte; He is capable of centralizing power in his person and coming to despise all his initial principles to proclaim himself emperor, becoming a feared tyrant throughout Europe for leading millions of people to war and seeking to be so epic that not even the passage of time arrives , really, to defeat him.

For 12 euros, people who wish can purchase their ticket both at the box office and through Tickentradas, thus earning the right to witness, from the romance between Napoleon and Josephine to their exile on the island of Saint Helena, through their famous coronation, portrayed by Jacques Luis David, or his no less well-known battle of Waterloo, where he was definitely defeated. Of course, all this seen from the creative point of view of the Companhia do Chapitô, an expert since 1996 in a visual and physical comedy, in which a good gesture is worth a thousand words.

The Culture Area of ​​the Provincial Council has opened the deadline for municipalities to request a performance within the framework of the '921 Musical District' program, which aims to disseminate music through concerts by various formations and groups, with proposals that can include together musical interpretation, workshops or combinations with other scenic disciplines. Requests can be made until April 16, and the performances will take place between May 14 and December 30 of this year.

'921 Musical District' is a program that is framed within what is understood as 'cultured music', that is, old and classical, but also other styles such as jazz or versions for classical formations of other popular music, and executed by interpreters whose quality is endorsed by their selection by the Don Juan de Borbón Foundation. It will be the latter, in contact with each applicant city council, who determines the specific action to be carried out in their municipality, respecting the type of grouping requested and the proposed dates.

The initiative has the initial intention of associating very careful interpretations of music not usually programmed, with equally cared and 'alternative' spaces, so it is suggested to the city council applicants for this activity that they choose, as far as possible, some singular space in your municipality.


The Provincial Council will pay directly to the contracted party a percentage of its cache that will vary depending on the number of inhabitants of the requesting entity, with the following sections: 30% for municipalities with more than 1.200 inhabitants; 40% for those with between 601 and 1.200 inhabitants; 50%, between 251 and 600 inhabitants; 60%, between 101 and 250, and 70%, up to 100 inhabitants.

All the artists that will be scheduled are active concert performers, professionals with a recognized artistic career, with the exceptions of the youth orchestra (made up of music students) and some music groups and Segovian amateur choirs dedicated to the preservation of various types of music.

Different types of shows are offered, such as family concerts, aimed at children, which are usually presented together with other performing arts in a fun and playful way. There are also concerts of varied programs that combine music of different styles and eras (classical music). The program also includes opera and / or zarzuela recitals, as well as music and poetry.

And the chapter 'Other music', offers concerts of folk, jazz and fusions between these and other genres. There are also multidisciplinary shows, with performances where other arts converge with music, such as cinema, dance or theater. And varied workshops on the performing arts of various contents: listening to music, painting, dance, music, to get closer to the performing arts.

On February 20, the Junta de Castilla y León lifted the perimeter closure between provinces, maintaining that of the Community and last Monday the opening of the hotel industry was allowed inside with a 33 percent capacity. Little by little steps are being taken that allow greater mobility of people and this is beginning to be noticed in certain sectors, in addition to those directly affected, such as bars and restaurants. As soon as a ray of sun has come out, the temperatures of last February reminded that spring is yet to come and that has resulted in a greater influx of visitors who take to the countryside to enjoy nature.

The so-called nature tourism seems to be returning after overcoming the third wave of the pandemic one year after its onset. In very small groups of five people plus the guide, it gives the option that a family or at most two couples with a child can enjoy routes in the open air or natural proposals. The open air spaces have become the escape route. In some cases, you can enjoy them freely, but in others, activities are organized at a minimal cost, such as the routes through the Pradena olive tree that the Tourist Office organizes every Sunday. Its manager, Marta Cervel, comments that "people want to move no matter what, even in the province."

Route through the Acebal de Prádena.
Before the opening between provinces, it did receive some groups from Segovia capital and province but do not forget that January was a very bad month with only 12 people who passed through the office throughout the month. In the last three weekends the demand has increased with families arriving from other provinces. However, given the limitations, groups fill up quickly and there is a waiting list. There is also demand for the rental of electric bikes that they offer, and couples or families do not mind paying the two euros it costs to make a route through the holly with the accompaniment of the guide. «It is a very familiar route where you tell them curiosities and they know other things. They like it better than going alone, ”says Marta.

This small movement is not very noticeable however in the reservations of rural houses, although with diversity of opinions. Last weekend in Prádena most were full although the closure with Madrid is accused. On the contrary, Enrique García, who combines rural accommodation with activities in nature in his company 'Mas que monte', comments that in rural houses there is little movement while there is more demand for activities, routes or workshops. In his case, at the beginning of the month he offers a complete program throughout each weekend and so far this month he has filled the groups with good acceptance and with several monitors. "People are encouraging themselves to do activities, they see what there is, what you offer them and on demand things are made easier," he says. In fact, although it is located in Peñarrubias de Pirón, it already has a complete route through the Hoces del Duratón for next weekend, since the offer it makes covers different areas of the region.

Although it was not until this week when the Natural Park Houses were opened, the three protected areas of the province have also noticed an influx of visitors during the last weekends. Especially in the Hoces del Rio Riaza Natural Park, where last Saturday they filled the quota of 50 people to do one of the trails and throughout the weekend they reached about 87 permits, which are free. There has been less demand in the Hoces del Duratón, according to the technician of Natural Parks in Segovia Raúl García, who also recognizes that as the weekends go by, more visitors are arriving from provinces such as Palencia, Ávila or Salamanca, when the public more common was from Burgos or Valladolid, which now also come. The influx, especially of families, is also noticeable in the parking lot of the hermitage of San Frutos. “You can tell that people want to go out on the weekends. They come wanting to do activities. All despite the fact that Madrid residents cannot come yet, because if not, we would be overwhelmed », he says. Making a comparison of recent data, free permits to make the trails in natural parks account for 30 percent compared to before the pandemic.

With the opening of the houses of the Poarques, both in Sepúlveda, Montejo de la Vega de la Serrezuela and Pedraza, from now on they will begin to offer guided tours for groups of up to five people. They are routes with telescopes to be able to see the birds on the rocks among other activities. As the hotel business opens, they consider that more public will be able to arrive but they are aware that the majority of hoteliers in areas such as Sepúlveda live from Madrid tourism and, as long as they cannot come, it is not profitable to open. The same occurs in the case of rural houses, which also have capacity limitations for a maximum of four people who are not living together, so interested callers tend to reject the reservation because the price does not compensate them and the establishment cannot accommodate more people as it is mandatory to send the guest registration to the Civil Guard. Something similar happens in the case of active tourism companies, almost to zero.

Lovers of good music have received with joy the news published by the association Taller Cultural de Fuentepelayo in the sense of recovering their Musical Days. The health situation derived from Covid-19 took ahead the edition scheduled to have been held last year.

The gradual improvement in the data of the pandemic has led the organizers to embark on the design of the programming of the 28 Musical Days that will take place during the summer months of June and July. To date, this cultural and musical cycle will be sponsored by the Caja Cega and Cajaviva Foundation and the Taller Cultural association itself. The usual collaboration of the Town Hall of the town is also expected, as has been happening in previous editions.

The Musical Days of Fuentepelayo emerged as a platform to support the musical groups of the event's own organizing entity (Coral Polifónica and Rondalla de Pulso y Púa). In its early years it also brought together musical groups from the Segovian capital.


In the design of these concerts, the safety of the spectators and the performers themselves will prevail and therefore, all the recitals will be held outdoors and with the mandatory social distancing in the incomparable setting of the Plaza de Gracia in the town. under the shelter of the rear façade of the parish church of Santa María la Mayor.

Another of the criteria to be followed will be that of the quality of the participating groups. The desire of the Fuentepelayo Cultural Workshop to try to offer concerts of a contrasted artistic level is known and they have focused their first efforts on that task. As is customary in previous editions, the cycle will be made up of half a dozen recitals of very different styles and formats. It is still too early to make public the contacts that are being carried out, but it can be firmly affirmed that the negotiations can come to fruition.

In the last edition the program included, among others, the performances of Rumen Tsvetkov, one of the best accordion musicians in Bulgaria, the duo Raúl Olivar (flamenco guitar) and Miguel Ángel Recio (piano), the Segovian group Cover Band Ruta 66 .

On March 22, World Water Day is celebrated. For this reason and in order to promote and disseminate Hydrogeology as a science, and the profession of hydrogeologist, of great importance within our society, from the Geology Association of Segovia, this year they have wanted to dedicate it to one of the geological routes within the Valseca municipal area offered by the Geomuseum and where water was a vitally important resource for the area in other times.

The day consists, in other editions, of free activities guided by specialists and open to all types of public, regardless of their knowledge in hydrogeology.

However, due to the pandemic, they have been forced to carry out an activity virtually, with the idea of ​​trying to materialize an excursion in this area in future editions in which they can go out into the field to disseminate hydrogeology.

To do this, they have made a short video (about 10 minutes approximately), which reflects the route detailing the places to observe according to a small summary script prepared for the occasion.

As a result, the video along with the itinerary summary guide will be posted on the website of the International Association of Hydrogeologists:

To what extent can a story that is handed down from generation to generation be true in its entirety? That is the question that the Galician company Teatro Chévere tries to answer in 'Curva España', the montage that, combining the techniques of the documentary genre and fiction, will be offered tomorrow, Friday, March 19, at the Juan Bravo Theater of the Diputación at 20:00 p.m. as a plan for a cold afternoon.

The work starts from the story passed down from father to son for decades about the death in May 1927 of the civil engineer José Fernández-España y Vigil. He died, according to the official version, when he rushed with his car, due to poor night visibility, through a ravine near the town of Riós in Ourense while he was working on the study of the route of the southern variant by Verín of the railway between Puebla de Sanabria. and Ourense. The fatal accident would not have given rise to more questions, if after the death of Fernández-Spain, it had not finally been decided to build the railway line through the Massif Central Ourense, discarding the route that the engineer was studying and prolonging the delay and the isolation of many Galician towns. This decision was a disappointment for the inhabitants of the area, who proceeded to ask themselves some questions that, in turn, gave rise to an alternative version of the accident that gained so much force that it has ended up prevailing over time.

In this way, the legend about the death of Fernández-Spain ended up convincing Teatro Chévere to consult archives, libraries, papers and digital documents and to interview people who investigated the events years ago, in order to question the story on stage. , through a documentary cinematographic narrative constructed live. Thus, reality and fiction coexist on the stage with an actress, an actor and two video operators and force the viewer to ask "why is lying so effective in finding simple explanations for complex problems".

For Teatro Chévere, a company focused in recent years on exploring the possibilities of documentary theater and collective memory as triggers of a real fiction, the piece directed by Xron and performed by Patricia de Lorenzo, Miguel de Lira, Lucía Estévez and Leticia T. Blanco, "baby of the police genre, adopts the format of a documentary and functions as an allegory of the construction of the Spanish nation-state as if it were the promise of a train that never arrived." Segovian viewers, who have tickets available at a single price of 16 euros, will have to decide whether to keep the events narrated or what happened.

“We hate fake mustaches and talcum powder in our hair to look like an old man. We do everything with the body, the voice and the theater. Because in the end the theater is a dialogue between the spectator and the performers who are on stage. A communication so that the public believes everything ”. This is how Segovian Esther Berzal, director of the play 'My pain is ...' sums up, in which the same actress plays women of different generations or recreates a man simply with his movement, without props. Few exercises stem so much from the soul of the actress, so convinced of the role that she does not need outside help to convince.

It is autofiction, a genre in which the author also goes on stage to tell a passage related to his life; In this case, Berzal uses the example of his maternal grandmother and the importance of names when defining who we are. “The line that divides fiction from reality is very blurred. There is the trick. The story of my grandmother is true but there are many things that I have invented ”.

There are three interpreters; Alicia Calero, Alicia de Pablo and Esther herself. The first, known among the group as Alice, plays Esther's grandmother at 7, 17, 47 and 89 years old, the age her grandmother really is, who will attend the premiere at the Juan Bravo Theater on Sunday at 20:00 p.m. hours. Meanwhile, De Pablo plays people who caused this woman pain, intentionally or not. What follows are small spoilers such as a sister who turned out to hide key elements of her identity, an untrustworthy businessman or a doctor who did not exactly follow the canons of his profession.


The atmosphere is key. "We play a lot with the stage space." There is no set design as such, since they act in a black box, but there are elements such as a ramp, a scale or painted Pringles potato jars. The coloring of the wardrobe is based on a white tableware with blue flowers from her grandmother.

Action theater
The company H El Arte is characterized by action theater. It is a physical theater in which the body and actions predominate over the text; if 'Romeo and Juliet' had to be performed, they would kiss each other instead of telling each other that they love each other. In this way, actresses change character depending on the body. "Alicia Calero, to become my grandmother at the age of 89, finds a different body than the one of 7 or 17. And with that her voice, attitude and all the development of the character are modified. The same happens with Alicia de Pablo, who passes through men and women.

Self-fiction was, in part, an exercise in survival. “People started to fall from the work and I said: 'I can't do the work with just two people. I have to get in to fill the stage a bit. ' And the only way to direct the play and be part of the cast was by being me ”, underlines the Segovian, who asks never to underestimate the process of getting into a character and to respect the main role of the casting. The book 'Autoficciones', by Sergio Blanco, finished giving shape to the idea.

And the result is surprising. “Suddenly you see that your friend is your grandmother… And what is cool about the theater is that you believe it. Being inside is true. And the thing is that Alicia's eyes change; they are green and they turn brown. It is very strong ”. One of the most exciting parts of the story is that her grandmother, who never spoke to her father, asks her to write to her father. In essence, resurrecting someone who was never alive. The play is part of the New Values ​​Cycle of the Segovian Provincial Theater, it lasts approximately one hour and 20 minutes and the price of tickets is seven euros.

They also deal with the influence of names; De Pablo plays three different women called Concepción; the two Alicia, the actresses, are very different. Esther asks questions: Do names unify us? Is the name the only thing capable of equaling us or is it what differentiates us? Despite being the same, do two people who are called differently have more in common than two different people who are called the same? “Esther with H has more personality than without her. I would not be the same person if my name was Esther. How ugly ”, he smiles. "I get excited". The work promises.

Maureen Choi is a unique, magnetic violinist, who with an enviable technique is capable of mesmerizing the audience with the sensitivity that emanates from her violin.

Listening to it live is something difficult to forget.

From a Korean family and born in the United States, she graduated in classical violin from Michigan State University and jazz from Berklee College, where she is now also a professor.

He formed his quartet in 2012 upon his arrival in Spain and since then they have won international jazz competitions and toured stages and festivals throughout Spain and the United States. In 2016 they presented their second album Ida y Vuelta (2015) in the prestigious AIEnRuta-Jazz cycle, and in the largest music market in the world, the South by Southwest Festival in Austin (Texas).

“Not everything is invented in music. This group led by the almost mythical and very young violinist Maureen Choi, offers us a luxurious mixture of jazz, flamenco, folk, Latin song ..., with a common denominator to everything, beyond its originality: its quality. "
(Larry Harlow, Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award)

In 2017 they have played throughout Spain, and they have filled the Café Central in Madrid for the fourth consecutive year, just before embarking on their second tour of the United States: 10 concerts that took them to cities such as Chicago, Cleveland, Akron, Detroit, Baltimore , Boston and New York and that will end with the recording of his new album. In this new work, Choi delves further into Spanish music with his band, between flamenco, Spanish classical and folklore, to recreate a very personal music, full of emotion and originality.

In July 2017 they presented a new show with the music of the Maureen Choi Quartet and the choreographies of two of the solo dancers of the Spanish National Ballet that premiered at the Castillo de Tiedra (Valladolid) and that combines Spanish dance with improvisation of the jazz world.

 

Since her arrival in Spain, the North American violinist of Korean origin Maureen Choi has been revolutionizing the improvised music scene.

Inspired by the rhythms and sounds of the Spanish diaspora, classical music, and jazz, she describes her music as "Spanish chamber jazz."

That search for his own voice, breaking gender stereotypes, became “Ida y Vuelta” (2015), the first album with his current quartet: Daniel García on Piano (Spain), Mario Carrillo on Contrabass (Spain) and Michael Olivera to the Battery (Cuba).

After 7 years of working together and more than 500 concerts throughout Spain, 3 tours in the USA and excellent reviews from the specialized press such as Downbeat or All About Jazz, the band has reached a level of maturity, interconnection, subtlety and musicality that is difficult to explain. Maureen's ability to connect emotionally with audiences through her violin is unmatched.
The new album "THEIA" is the musical consequence of the evolution of the band, both individually and collectively.

Climate change returns tomorrow, Friday, March 12, to sneak behind the scenes of the Juan Bravo Theater of the Diputación with the intention of raising awareness among the little ones about the importance of caring for the environment and the need to create customs that respect the environment and the nature that populates the planet. The Valencian company La Coja Dansa will be responsible, starting at 18:00 p.m., for capturing the attention of children and their families, which with its show 'Deshielo' will dance on the solutions that can modify the fate of this climate change .

Inuit Girl, a young woman who lives in a village of igloos, cold and flowers among the frost, as the protagonist, La Coja Dansa poses, in her third show for family audiences, a delicate, careful montage with a rhythm that dances to the beat of children's reflections. 'Thaw' begins with the girl realizing that something strange happens when she sees her holy stone break. For this reason, he soon decides to undertake a journey that will provide him with answers; a journey that La Coja Dansa turns, thanks to the presence of the white fox, the man who plants trees and the trash transformer, into a look at the strength of friendship and how joining wills and generating routines can make any little person help make a big difference.

For forty-five minutes, and supported by a system of projections and illustrations by Konkoko that give the montage a certain cinematographic aspect, the interpreters Olga Clavel and Santiago de la Fuente will move to the beat of the music of Damián Sánchez to stir the consciences of older and younger.

La Coja Dansa has been touring the stages for more than twenty years and participating in choreographic encounters, both nationally and internationally. The company, directed by Tatiana Clavel and Raúl León, has been selected for various competitions and after 'Portraits inhabited' in 2008 and 'Escondite' in 2011 they have once again bet on the family audience for this show, whose tickets can be purchased for 10 euros both at the Theater box office and on the Tickentradas platform and in which they once again bet on the harmony between dance and audiovisual resources.
