Theater group will make Old Town its stage

Groups from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Spain, Finland, France, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Venezuela, and Switzerland will participate in the 6th International Festival of Performing Arts (FAE) from March 27 to April 2, 2014.

Nicaragua and Finland are participating for the first time. They will be represented by the playwright Justo Rufino Garay (with the play Oh darling, you don't love me as you used to) and the company VHS (with the visual and multimedia theater piece Split).

The Argentine, Colombian, and Swiss talent can be seen in productions like Intertwined Legs, the highly acclaimed comedy written and directed by Omar Aita, with a cast of three extraordinary artists from Colombia and Switzerland.

They will also be bringing Rhino, which Roberto Enrique King explains is an adaptation of the Ionesco classic for puppets and actors. It has been a huge festival hit and is a co-production between the National Theatre House of Bogotá and the Des Hélices Company of Switzerland, directed by the Swiss Isabelle Matter and with a cast of remarkable Colombian actors.

Performance venues will be at the National Theater, Anita Villalaz Theater, and Amador Theater, and in the alternative stage spaces at La Casona, Calicanto, Cathedral Square, and Herrera Square.
